Where would you put him? Forsberg was 18 since last August and wasn't even considered to be on the NHL roster just yet and he won a gold medal in the WJC and almost won another this year.

If USA didn't have a stellar team this year Sweden likely would've won again. That's two gold medals.
Filip Forsberg is listed as 6'1" and 188 lbs and is still playing in the second-tier Swedish league as far as I can tell

Aleksander Barkov is listed as 6'3" and 205 lbs and is playing in the top-tier Finnish league and has been there since fall 2011

I fail to see the comparison
