I totally agree, players like Landeskog is what we need. Landeskog seem to have a great attitude and also a strong physical play.
With some more grit and physical play Sweden will be very difficult to stop.
About Forsberg, I wouldn't call Forsberg a power forward but he for sure had lots of grit. :-)
I've had this dream/vision a long time, combining the best of North American hockey style with Swedish. Guys like Landeskog is slowly making it come true and will hopefully inspire others.
Hmm, Landeskog also reminds me a bit of Renberg, but a tougher, angrier more physical version of Renberg. ;-) But I really, really hope Landeskog have a better slapshot than Renberg had. (one of Renberg's major weaknesses)
