For example, TSN (Bob McKenzie / Greg Button) had him at #36 in their final rankings. Three others, who I would have liked to see picked at #27 were also listed by TSN: Matteau @ #23, Pearson @ #29, Frk @ #32.
Now that the pick is history we're all hoping that Samuelsson becomes a regular NHLer who can impact games positively. In a few years we'll know if any of the three from above would have been a better choice.
TSN's rankings are an average from ten scouts. Maybe one scout had him at 105 because he feels hes a dirty player and a hot head. Maybe two scouts did. Throws off the average. Maybe there were nine prospects within one point(in the average ranking of each other)
Watch him at the WJC next winter. You will be extremely happy.
