Even the holy aircrank - Mikael Granlund - dominates Finnish Elite League and that guy doesn't even know how to skate properly. So calling someone who hasn't produced in hockey periphery a steal sounds a bit premature for me.

Didn't see him in WJC though, so let's hope I'm out of my mind like a loony grandpa on heroin. Swedes are you usually great skaters, so he should have least one great asset.
I heard on TSN that Collberg was arguably better than Forsberg at the WJC.

Love his speed too, and I love swedes in general. (no homo)
