He has been effective and good in SM-Liiga, AHL, International games..

When is the time to take the next step, if not now? I think it's the right direction for him and great challenge for him now.. You gotta start it one day. They had parise and koivu and heatley against him last game, but they didin't get anything special done, and it wasn't any closer against Vatanen than against anyone else. Minnesota has been playing like **** 5 on 5 but he didin't look any weaker than others.
