Hedman's more of a solid all around player who needs to play more physical to make it in the NHL. Got a lot of prime minutes in the SEL this past season. We've got him pegged to go in the 3rd round.

Lepisto had a great tournament, played in his home country. If he played like that all the time no one would question his future. We've got him ranked after Hedman.
Yea, Everything I've read about Fransson has been very good. I hate to spout off about a player I haven't seen, but he really sounds like the total package. I might take him at 24 depending on who's available, (I like Lyamin, GREEN, maybe a forward falls). I do have a fondness for Swedes though...
