I think it was quite clear that he would be struggling in the nhl rink because of the physical play. In sm-liga he had tons of time with the pack, yet he was falling to knees very easily even in the sm-liiga. Also, the referees really took care he wasnt push around too much in finland, and he was quite 'untouchable' cause everytime he went down there was a penalty whistled. But now he doesnt have referees on his side anymore and the game is so much faster resulting he has lost all his confidence. That is the biggest issue now.
Next summer he needs to get bigger, roids prolly the only way.
