I'm one who's high on Bystrom. If it were any other year, he'd be a top 10, maybe top 5 pick. He has all the physical tools you want in a defenseman. He can really skate. He's in fantastic physical shape. He's got great vision. He's also a very physical player and loves to play a hard hitting game. He's also still growing. He started the season at 5'10 and grew three inches to 6'1 and he already weighs 200 pounds. I should mention he's also one of the fastest skaters in the draft too. He's a real special guy.

The only reason he goes this low is simply because he plays in Europe. Some teams would like him to go to North America to play on the surface there and see how he adapts to the shorter game. Honestly, it's a bogus reason. Look at how well Larsson played this year. Bystrom is right up there with Larsson. I'd LOVE to see the Flyers get Bystrom.
