Could not believe my eyes when he was picked ahead of Järnkrok in the 2010 draft.
If he makes the NHL one day I think it will be as a future bottom line forward.
I think no one could. Typical scenario of where a club gets blinded a fair bit by size. I think his size advantage in juniors is a big factor when it comes to his numbers there, they're pretty good(not that good in OHL though). He is really slow aswell, he was easily the slowest guy on Sweden(among forwards anyway) at the WJC. Basically, the guy hasn't improved a lot in two years and it shows.
Agreed about the last part though, Rensfeldt can still make it is an energy guy, 3rd liner chipping in with some points. But I think he needs to work on his skating a lot to make that happen.
