They have same height weighing about the same. Lander was assistant captain in timra when he was 19 and captain swedish national juniors team. Lander had to taken so much responsible in his sel team from young age, so he hasnt developed his offensive game properly. Zetterberg has also been in the national team u18 and u20.
Lander has great leadership qualitys great hockeysense, and i think those who thinks they reminds of each other when young isnt tells fairytales, if think they has a point.

But from there to get zetterbergs numbers in the future isnt realistic, but i think if they give him offensive chances, he could develop to a great twoway c with 50p seasons. I mean people had expectations on Paajrvi to rip off the Nhl , and he also hasnt done any great numbers before he came over.
Who are these Swedish players that put up such better numbers at 19 years in the SEL? Please don't respond Forsberg, Sedins or Naslund... It would make less than a little sense seeing as the point is to say that he was never anything special... Those guys were something really really special.

Zetterberg had better numbers at 19 (0.8 ppg) but he was playing in the 2nd league.

I just picked players off the top of my head here, I am not trying to be a smart*** but I really want to know which are these guys putting up numbers way better than PRV did in the SEL.
