Really like his improvement but lets be honest Almqvist has his work cut out for him for that role in with the Wings.

Kronwall, Smith, Sproul, Marchenko, Ouellet, and if Babs is around forwards.

His development has been real good and his confidence has taken off, he is easily the most crisp passer in GR on the backend. That will be big going forward, but I don't know even with as much as I like him on the PP in GR that he has anything for the guys listed.

I would like to see Smith and Almqvist tried out, I think the fact he can shoot would open up things for Brendan more.
