I say this without seeing him play, however I have the feeling that neither have you (again could be wrong but you only mentioned his stats). I'm not saying that he can't be in the #1 discussion, just that his stats, albeit very impressive, shouldn't automatically warrant him this status.
Yep, Collberg and Victor Rask had PPG+ seasons in SuperElit at the same age as Nylander and they were picked in the 2nd round of the draft. However, I saw him in the tournament TV-pucken last year his overall skill level looked very impressive. Based on that and his stats since then, I'd say he has a boatload of talent but it's too early to say if he's a future top 10 pick.
