    - tuomo ruutu
    - mikko koivu
    - Lauri Tukonen
    - Korpikoski (sp)
    - Nokelainen

    How does he compare to these players, is he of their caliber, better, does he have top line ability?

    Honestly, he doesn't deserve to be compared to any of those players. Jesse was just big early but skill-wise he hasn't developed much lately (2 years). He's only gained senior level experience.
