Calle's been great defensively, but unfortunately he looks almost exactly the same offensively as he did a few years ago. He has some talent, but lacks the strength/drive/instincts to become really dangerous. He's still very weak on the puck in the offensive zone, can't really win those 1-on-1 battles along the boards. And while he's a good skater, he doesn't have the explosive speed that Nyquist has (easy to tell as they're on the same line). Time to get over the loss of Jarnkrok. 


But he was our top center prospect and we'll never replace him... Kind of reminds me of a young filppula, has all the tools to become a star in the nhl, but will almost certainly never hit his full potential unfortunately, I'm glad Holland saw this and got something for him when we needed to

Agreed. Jarnkrok was drafted in 2010, it's 2014. He should have been on the team by now. How many players drafted 4 years before making his NHL debut still become a great player?
