Like I said, just because he has the same upside as those guys, doesn't mean he's gonna turn out like them. It's not like they share a brain or anything (and I know you guys know this). Until a coach or fellow player comes out and says that Tjutin doesn't have 'consistent desire' as you say then I don't think he deserves such a stigma at such a young age. I don't like mixing up inconsistency with a perceived lack of desire unless it is founded.
