really. Because I remember a lot of people around here thinking Karlsson would take quite a while. Too small, not heavy enough to handle all those 6'3" 230 lbs forwards pounding him into the boards, yada yada yada. And yet he did it in less than a year. and by all accounts, Forsberg seems to think he will be at least as good. So I would expect his transition to be just as smooth if not smoother than Karlsson's if I had to guess.
