On top of all that, he plays tough and forceful and will definitely be able to compete against NHL men. Also, he's listed at 6'2 and is a righty. Righty's that are big are usually valued a little more because naturally they tend to score more. Take it as a grain of salt, but most righty's in the NHL are goal scorers because it's easier for their centermen( who are mostly left-handed) to pass them the puck. Guys like Dany Heatley, Brett Hull, Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos, Ilya Kovulchuck and even Phil Kessel are all rightys. Still, my first pick would be Galchenyuk but I'm all for a well-rounded Swede
In the U-18, I would agree with you that Forsberg was the best player on the ice: during the first game. Even though he's "only" scored twice in two games, he's had an okay/good tournament.

During the second game he didn't look so good. I'd like to see him step up and **** **** up.
