He has drawn comparisons to fellow swede Johan Franzen, who himself didnt make the NHL till he was 26. And also bear in mind Franzens best season in the SEL he had 12 goals and 18 assists in 49 games aged 24. Compared to Harjus best season in the SEL aged 22 scored 27 goals and 22 assists in 55 games, as well as PPG in the playoffs.
But you are right HF rankings are much more useful than real facts like those.
Oh right, because everyone who is a 'late bloomer' makes it. We got plenty of those in Toronto, thanks.
