As for Forsberg, I have read a report somewhere that said he is NHL ready, I forgot where I read it though. Was linked from the thread over at the prospects section. He won't get pushed around at 6'2 180. He also plays against men in the second best Swedish league.
The kid shouldn't jump from Tier 2 Swedish hockey to the NHL. He'd get killed. I'd let him play in the SEL for two more years before bringing him over. Let him develop in a real league and go to the WJC twice more. The same approach is working for Granlund.
Heck, the kid doesn't even turn 18 until August.
