I asked him if Zibby was going top make it to the NHL, and he said "some day". I then asked him if they made a mistake drafting Zibby ahead of Couturie. He looked surprised I asked him that question, and his answer was "only time will tell". All in all, a great guy.
Most Swedish players take a little longer to develop.
Very few Swedes come into the league as 19-20 year olds and make an impact. Forsberg wasn't even in the NHL at that age.
I do fear that Zibs hockey IQ isn't good enough, same problem as Paajarvi and Hedman.
