Calle Jarnkrok is extremely overrated imo. He is essentially Filpulla. Great 3rd line center average 2nd line center. I think that is realistically his ceiling which he has almost realized.
He will never be a Zetterberg.
It's way too early to tell. No one thought Zetterberg would become what Zetterberg is when he was Jarnkrok's age. He could be overrated as a prospect, but he could be better than we even could have guessed too. Time will tell.
5 years now you can catch the Dmen who are 20 when the league started and they are now 25. Not much yet. seems like plenty of time. The problem for most prospects is the Jr. league is crap over there and the KHL is too good. The other problem is the game is completely different especially for a defensemen. IF he wants to play in the NHL he should get over to The AHL as soon as he can.

How many NHL games did Kronwall have at the age of 25? And he's our #1 defenseman.
How about Ericsson at 25? And he's supposed to be our #2 defenseman.
