There is a reason Columbus, New Jersey, and every other team passed on him. Weak Shot, decent puck carrier, HORRIBLE defensively.

If I was you guys, I would be hoping you don't pick up this guy.
I was kinda disappointed when the Blue Jackets didn't qualify him, but under those circumstances I can understand why, considering the salary they had to qualify.

However, IMO, Strålman is a better player than all of Russell, Clitsome and Martinek. What I can't understand is why they chose these guys over him and then went on handing an outragious multiyear deal to Marc ****ing Methot.
