Spoke with a Modo fan (Le Tigre) asking for a comparison of Erik Nystrom and 1st rounder Henrik Samuelsson. This is what he had to say.

Samuelsson on the other hand is a terrible skater and he didnt backcheck at all in MODO but perhaps Samuelsson needed more time to adjust to big rinks.

Also, when you look at how many points they put up you should know Samuelsson got to play alot (including pp time). Nyström didnt get many minutes and still put up as much + not being completely useless defensively.
He also said he would drop in with a full scouting report following the draft.
