There comes a point where stats don't tell the whole story, which I freely admit. I also already admitted the Wings' prospects who have problems, mainly Pulkkinen.
When Hakan (That bum that found Datsyuk and Zetterberg) says Jarnkrok will never need to play a game in the AHL, you get a pretty good idea of his bust chances.
And for the record, I suspect that even though Hakan claims Jarnkrok doesn't need to play in the AHL, he probably still will due to roster space.
