All humorous edits of ColePens' post aside, I don't think there was any big knock on him except that one of the posters here who has watched Forsberg a lot said he was overrated, suggesting I think that he would not have been as highly touted in a stronger draft / not as noticed. I think in the draft his biggest question mark was his size / strength / willingness to compete for the puck? It's a bit hazy now but that's my recollection.
That said, this is the WJC thread so we should take any serious prospect talk (not related to how a prospect is performing in this tournament), to one of the myriad prospect threads.
