I don't see many people throwing arguments as to why he shouldn't be a 1st rounder, would you like to give some reasons? I don't mind people saying whatever they will as long as they have reason. All the reasons thus far have been something like "He didn't play in the WJC" or "Doesn't have good enough stats in SM-liiga". To me, these are not valid arguments.

Scouts don't look it like that. They don't base their decisions on a newcomer coaches decisions (Helminen didn't pick him on the team, someone else could have) or numbers on a paper. The look at talent, skill, work ethic, and how they expect the skill and talent to translate to the North American game.

I'm not saying that he will go in the first, I just think that he definately has what it takes if things go right.
