The difference is more then 10 cm / 4 inches in height and about 15 kg / 33 lbs in weight. Ericsson got NHL size. Pettersson doesnt, but other than that both are skilled and gritty. I would say Ericsson is more of a leader also. If my memory doesn't fail me I think he has been weighing in on over 100 kg/222 lbs during his good years (now its 96/212).

Btw: The guy was concidered promising until he was around 30 years old. Then it was discovered that he had some kind of asthma and when he got medication for that he improved greatly over a summer. I'm not sure this is 100 % truth but it's a rumour I've heard.
