I've always said Michalek with more tools. His frame and stride isn't very different.

Even in his young days, Michalek would just constantly break underneath and get alone with the goalie.
Mika can do that, and more
. Whereas Michalek may hit 30 goals sparsely through his career, I think Mika will do it more.
Which is probably because of the difference in the quality of how they read the game. Michalek is an awesome player but has always been lacking in the thinking the game department, still an awesome player though
