Thanks for that, pretty good to hear. Even with Holmqvist's weaknesses, we really need a guy (or two) with a good first pass and that can bring something on the powerplay. Given that Akerman wasn't quite impressive defensively, either, I am optimistic that Holmqvist will be a good addition for us. If he's having a decent number of games where he looks like "one of the best offensive defenseman in SEL", that's one hell of an addition for the German league.

Falk sounds great from your descriptions. He's replacing a relatively similar type - seemingly - in Jason Jaspers, who was a good two-way player, hard worker, and generally well-liked. Apart from being at a generally lower level, the game is played quite a bit more open in Germany, so I'm optimistic his numbers could adjust positively as well. A guy to send out with a lead is something we really could need. If he can win more faceoffs than he loses, that would be a fantastic fit.
