That's not proven at all.

If you want to look at proven producers in the NHL; Minnesota blows Edmonton out of the water in defense then. Scandella, Spurgeon and Falk along with Brodin, Dumba, Kampfer, Cuma.

And the magnitude of Koivu's accomplishments in the NHL and elsewhere puts him a cut above RNH.

RNH has already out produced him (even on a PPG basis) as an 18 year old rookie in the NHL. As a point of reference, Mikko Koivu scored 7 points in 48 games as an 18 year old playing in Finland.

I don't know what RNH's level of play is going to be when all is said and done, but I do know that it will be significantly higher than Mikko Koivu's.

I also don't know what Matt Dumba's level of play is going to be when all is said and done, but I seriously doubt he'll be capable of putting up 1.5 points per game in the AHL.
