He holds on to the puck for too long, he always tries to make that extra deke (often in dangerous situations) and don't really put much effort in his defensive game at all.
This combined with ruomored attitude problems seem to have cemented him on the junior team while several other junior players have been "called up" to the senior team for both practise and SEL action.
He has however started to play a bit more team-oriented lately, and the fact that Modo now is giving him the opportunity to play professional hockey in the 2nd tier league might indicate a change in attitude.
This should be a good move for Nyström anyway though since he's obviously to skilled to actually make any progress as a player in the Swedish junior leagues. Battling physically superior opponents in a men's league is probably exactly what he (and his ego) needs to develop.
Thanks Fregus, much appreciated!
