For all the talk of these great years of Swedish talent development, it doesn't seem like we've developed any genuine first line forwards except for maybe Landeskog and Zibanejad.. and it's not a given that those guys even reach that height. Maybe F. Forsberg or Collberg... or someone surprises which isn't that improbable seeing as we've had so many drafted players in recent years.. we'll see.
That's a quick judgement.

Backstrom is a legit 1st liner.
Berglund is a good player.
Hornqvist is pretty good aswell.
Marcus Johansson is doing very well.
Josefson was doing fine until the injury.

And the main thing is that those guys a really young, espescially last 2 aswell as Backlund, Paajarvi, Tedenby and Lander.
