Overall I'm hoping he can be at least a 40 point reliable 3rd line center over a full season. Does he have anymore upside than that.
Or prehaps will he be traded out like Bergfors was. Tedenby seems to be heading down the same path as Bergfors so we haven't had much luck with swedish players recently. I'm hoping this is the season it bucks the trend for Josefson (and of course Larsson).
Josefson has the offensive potential and the poise to be a 50-60 point two-way scorer. If all else fails, he is a reliable speedy third line centerman who can pot a few goals here and there. The problem with guys like Tedenby and Bergfors is they are useless on the third line, which is why Lou traded Bergfors. He wasn't producing in the top six, a contending team isn't going to have a Bergfors, etc. in its' bottom six.
I'd say at max 50-60 point second line centerman, and at the very least, a Sami Pahlsson type third line centerman who puts up 25-35 point a season.
