Hjalmarsson has been among the top performers for Boras HC, the minor-league team for Vastra Frolunda HC Goteborg of the SEL with 14 goals, 19 assists in 40 games.
Um...no. Frolunda will typically loan Boras a couple of their Jr aged played that aren't quite good enough to make Frolunda's SEL team but are well beyond the level of play in the Jr league they would play in for Frolunda's Jr team but beyond that, they are not affiliated. The Allsvenskan IS NOT a minor league set up to feed players to the SEL like the AHL is to the NHL.

I also think the writer has Hjalmarsson way too low. The kid's undersized but so are a lot of young kids. He lead a pro team in scoring as a 19 yr old. The talent's there.

I also don't agree with Wagner over Junland and like Robb, think Sonne should be ahead of Wagner as well.
