I just looked at the last couple of pages of the V9.0 of the Draft thread and can't get all over the Forsberg bashing because he's scoring a goal a game.
Watch the fricking game folks before commenting. The only period when the game was close (the 1st period), he completely dominated in the offensive zone and had 5 fricking shots on goal which included his goal! The kid looked like a man among boys out there. Not to mention he threw some big hits, is great along the wall, goes hard to the net and doesn't shy away from anyone. He's also very good at controlling the puck in the offensive zone. Sweden basically put it into cruise control the rest of the game. This is the type of player we want when the going is tough...he's a gamer with plenty of skill.
It's frustrating to debate with people who don't watch a game and treat the stat sheet like it tells the entire story.
Collberg's also one helluva player (skill and grit) but he doesn't have as much upside at the NHL level as Forsberg because he'll never be able to overpower NHL defenders like the big Swedish captain can.
