No one even seems to think he's a sure shot NHLer. I think everyone understands what he is.

I expect more of the people who are calling him overrated wouldn't be calling him overrated if he got more ice and wasn't playing fragile all year. He led the preseason Euro Trophy tourney in scoring, but his club is known not to let young players get much ice. I've yet to figure out whether it was his back or his club keeping his ice limited....his numbers given his ice time are actually pretty impressive.

If he got PP1 time and played 15-16 minutes a night and put up Silfverberg's numbers (which many Swede posters think he would have), we'd be hearing a lot more people overrating him. He is what he is regardless of what he produces....small, soft, project, highly skilled.

He's 20....it took Omark til he was 23 to sniff the NHL.
