Those guys definitely played better but Wikstrand really held his own and was the biggest part of the Swedish D which made the finals. He wasn't flashy but extremely effective and efficient. Nilsson was good but wasn't as relied on and effective all-around like Wikstrand, imo. Not like this tourney is anything of a small sample of his development either, he was played phenomenal hockey in Sweden prior to this as well.
He was okay - solid but okay. He was a bit better than Claesson was the year before him but would have been way behind lindholm. That probably gives you a gauge of where he should have been drafted - 3rd, 4th rounder. Tops out as a #4,5 if all goes perfectly according to plan. He wasn't strikingly amazing - a notch above Claesson though.
