Holmqvist? I'm so sorry for you guys...
No but seriously, Falk is a very good two-way centre, just a couple of seasons ago he would've received the SEL Selke award if it existed. He was a great defensively and contributed well offensively for HV71, and come playoff time he becomes a beast. Also as an opponent fan you just can't dislike him, he plays hard but fair and seems like a great guy off the ice. A real heart and soul players.
Holmqvist on the other hand can be disliked by opponents as well as his own teams fans. At times he's one of the best offensive defencemen in the SEL, but is usually a master of turning the puck over. He can do some really dumb things on the ice too, once after his team allowed a goal against into an empty net he smashed his stick at the plexiglass, shattering it, which not only delayed the game for several minutes with seconds left to play, but also sent several off-ice officials to the hospital with plexiglass fragments in their eyes.
Often it looks like he just don't care out on the ice, playing without heart.
