If he has struggled terribly in SEL, that means he's still very very far from NHL.
Are you judging that based on his stat line again? He wasn't ready to be a first liner in the SEL or carry the grinders he was playing with by any means but he wasn't lost either. The Allsvenskan is only a slight step down and is an ideal fit. He's too good to spend a year in the J20s.

And he was, since day one, 2+ years from the NHL. Which is completely normal.

But even to suggest that he was "struggling terribly" in the SEL is an outright lie and contradiction of the reports from people like Systemfel and strutsboa who actually watch him play.

I'm really happy he's in Allsvenskan and providing immediate dividends. Hopefully he can play a really big role offensively and build his confidence there.
His entire argument is based on box scores.
