True, he has 3 years on them, but if he turns out to be even half of the player either of them is in the long run, Nygren will be well worth a 4th round pick, and should very well find a spot on our D in the post-Gill/Spacek/Markov era.
Brodin is the opposite of Nygren, very defensive minded while Nygren ain't that at all.
Klefbom don't get very much ice time.
Tho 11 points from Magnus is good, especially in the team that has done least goals in the league. In 20 of 23 games so far we have only done 2 or less goals.
We've only managed to do 40 goals in 23 games...
He started the season by doing 4 of our first 9 goals.
Upside: Howitzer of a shot, PP specialist, huge heart for the team and the fans (atleast now, as he is from the city and is practically raised in the home stands). Never late standing up for a teammate that has been cheapshotted or such.
Downside: Abit to light, needs to up his defense alot, play more physical, work on the first pass in the own zone.
