Can you differentiate between the two? Seems like you're crying about it.

Off the map pick? Brodin was picked 10th overall, ahead of both Erixon and Rundblad in their perspective draft years, and slightly behind OEL. It's not like he said some swedish no name, Brodin's a blue chip prospect.
This sir, is ridiculous. When asked (for the most part) Which of the swedish stars is going to be the best, and the first reply is "Brodin, Book it" with no explanation of why, it seems like major homerism. And yes, those short "my player wins" type posts do lose some sort of credentials in peoples eyes. Now you are insulting a poster, and frankly it does make you look petty, especially when it was explained later in the thread. As well draft position argument is pretty weak, Subban was picked in the second round, he is not second round talent. Different scouting teams have different perspectives and such, where St.Louis might have gotten a player in their top 10 at the 16 spot. meaning any comparison is frankly useless.

Anyway off of Potential:

Rundblad
OEL
Larrson
-----
Brodin
Karlsson
Klefbom
----
Hedman
Erixon

Off of most likely to hit potential

Hedman
Karlsson
----
Larrson
OEL
Brodin
Erixon
Klefbom
----
Rundblad

Mixture

OEL
Larsson
Karlsson
---
Brodin
Hedman
---
Rundblad
Erixon
Klefbom
