I didn't get that impression.

I said "so peterson?"

and he quickly said "no"...like almost interrupting me. I asked "so he's not close?" and he said "he's an extremely skilled and fast small player...but he needs to be more serious about being a pro"...and went on to say "he's the 2nd most skilled player behind spezza...(correcting himself) no, third most raw skill in the organization behind spezza and alfredsson." (i assumed he forgot karlsson or was just talking about forwards). So it's a matter of peterson wanting it.

Basically i understood that it's not that he wants to go back to europe, or that he's a cancer...just that he might not be putting in the hours in that silfverberg, karlsson, alfredsson etc do.(comparing him to other swedes). Not that he doesn't try in-game....but that is off ice routine/training could be more serious/dedicated.
