I loved Rico, and I agree except for the fact that Kimmo has a tougher edge to his game, IMO... While Desjardines took his lumps and played on, Kimmo not only takes the lumps but mixes it up despite his diminutive size.

I'd say that Kimmo is a Flyered up version of Rico in his prime... And that is taking nothing away from Eric who gave everything he had while wearing O&B and left it all on the ice until he had no more to give. Sadly he was injured a couple key postseasons where the Flyers missed him greatly, and he may have made all the difference in the world had he been healthy.
