    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Nokelainen look like a little Saku Koivu? Not big, works hard in the corner, great vision. Where was Koivu rated in his draft year? I'm curious.

    Koivu was rated mid to late first round, but it was a much deeper and talented draft.''

    Nokelainen seems more of a dependable two-way guy, and is much bigger than Koivu, so I'm not sure the comparison exactly fits. He doesn't sound nearly as dynamic in terms of raw offensive talent as Koivu was. Maybe more like his brother.

    Maybe more like Lehtinen?

    I say Lauri Korpikoski is a better comparaison if you want some 2004 draft eligible player to compare with Koivu.
