Actually, I've heard of Korpikoski being compared to Bergenheim before, in that they're both speedsters who play a high-energy, aggressive game. I like the fact that Korpikoski's speed has been compared to Bergenheim, who can really fly. From what I've read, Bergenheim might be a bit faster, but Korpikoski has much better hands and overall offensive skill. I think that Korpikoski's downside is essentially the same as Bergenheim's, but his upside is much better.

In defence of TPS (my other favourite hockey team ), they're 5th in the SM-Liiga right now, they don't exactly suck. The stats do show that they're not exactly a high-scoring team, though.
