You could make the same list for just about every nationality with a large enough sample size.

Likewise, you could make a far longer list of players didn't amount to that much or collapsed after looking promising.

Forsberg could become Perry I guess, in the sense that any player who hasn't proven himself to be something could prove himself to be something beyond everyone's expectations, but a Cole/Franzen level seems a lot more optimally realistic. I don't see him as a pain to play against on all fronts 40-40 player let alone 50-50.
