Anderssons is a big defenseman that plays a solid two-way game. His hockey sense is good and offensively he stands out with pretty good top speed, puckhandling and a quite powerful slapshot. Defensively, he is usually in right position, but sometimes tends to not play it simple enough when in control of the puck.

Big bodied(6'3, 194lbs) Swedish defensemen who sounds like a bit of a high roller. Big shot, good offensive skill, tends to over complicate his game when he has the puck though.

VERY solid pick, I heard of this guy, he is a fast,shifty,bigger Dman.

parabola 06-27-2009 11:23 AM

Well one or two of these defensemen will hopefully work out...

It's interesting because IIRC Gillis did say that he'd go off the board if needed and his focus was on skill.

With Nonis we would have drafted a few "tough" defencemen but with Gillis we're going with "skilled" defencemen here.

I do like the philosophy of drafting people who can play and helping them develop the rest of their game. Me likey a lot!

And jeez, we're certainly stockpiling defensemen now.

I think that is a key differance. You can always trade for tuffness fairly cheap, but skill costs a premium.

Looks like those who wanted Delorme gone last year kind of got what they wanted after all...

SaucyNavel 06-27-2009 11:39 AM

or maybe Delorme wasn't actually the problem...

Garl 06-27-2009 01:26 PM

Bif defensive defenseman, a good skater also.

Btw, he is not 6'3, at least 6'4 maybe 6'5, and over 200 lbs for sure.

Lard_Lad 06-27-2009 01:31 PM

Sounds like a good candidate for a season in major junior if we can get him over here.

Have you seen him before, in person, on the ice, or otherwise? I think we'd all appreciate some more opinions about this guy.

Reminds me of Double K :yo:

Maybe we just didn't have a system to develop the players once we picked them. You look at all picks differently when you have confidence you have the right staff to actually help the players develop rather than having to rely solely on the player doing their part.

If you are developing your own system to help these players and your confident in it, you can go out and make picks we wouldn't have made in the past, instead going the alternate route of playing it 'safe'.

Or he has been given a different set of criteria against which to evaluate players.

Delorme may have had to adapt to a different way of thinking

some of his notable draft comments that reflected his old way of thinking include saying how much of a crapshoot drafting is and that it's usually good enough to watch a player in practice to see how good he is.

I doubt Delorme has as much say over the final list as before as scouting seems to be a lot more structured than it was in the past judging from Gillis's comments. Delorme may be more of a figurehead now.
