I've been stating this for the past year - this kid needs time. He came out of nowhere in his draft year to be an asset for his SEL club team. He's one of the rawest prospects out there. We won't get to see the results for another couple years at least. Mika has the same skills package as Marian Hossa, he just isn't putting it all together right now. If he ever does, we're going to be getting a hell of a player.
Those who are proclaiming him a bust need to be patient. If he still isn't scoring a couple years from now, then we have a problem. But for now I think it can be attributed to different ice, the entire team struggling to score (not just Mika) and how raw of a player he is.
He needs to have confidence by dominating at lower level. it will come.
