Some people said that Filip Forsberg was going to be our BEST player before the 2012 tournament. Filip Forsberg was one of our worst players last year. Granted, he was young and there to learn aswell.

Fan opinions are always going to be split.
My view is that our defence looks worse this year. But like you say it's also about stepping up, and this year my view is that our defence is going to have to take an even greater one.
To be fair to Forsberg he was really dominant in the first few games but kind of dissapeared the longer the tournament went on and in the end he had practically no play time at all. To me there were other players who were supposed to be more productive but werent among those were certainly William Karlsson for instance. I dont really remember many saying he was supposed to be our BEST player in that tournament..

This year however it's Forsberg who should shine and certainly deliver the goods. There are no excuses this time around
