Top Finns in the NHL

Recommended Posts

I personally would put Ruu over Pit, but its nice to see this list none the less.

^ Agreed.... One my friends (a Pens fan) was hoping the Pens would pick up Ruutu if he went to free agency :rolleyes:

Why? Pitkanen is our #1 dman and easily top 30 dman who continues to improve every year and finally find his home and starts to play with his full potential. Ruutu is nothing special and little overrated (and overpaid).

For me, Niklas Backstrom should be n1. The guy is phenomenal goaltender, easily top 5 in league.

Overrated? A physical player who was #2 in Scoring for our team last year?

Doubtful

He was actually #3 in scoring, but that's beside the point. On the basis of the entire NHL, he's about in the right spot. He's certainly not better than any of those above him. Maybe better than Saku and Olli now, but they have history on their side.
