He is an all round player and is not really expected to put up Forsberg type numbers but his style of physical play is similar but he is not a scoring machine ... but if you get a chance to watch him you will see he is far from what a person would call a bust, like say an Alexander Daigle...

It's just how I feel. Ruutu may turn out to be the second comming. It's just the same feeling I got about Daige all this hype and never living up to any of it but your right I could be wrong.
