It seems names come around every once in a while. I work in a school and lots of names on today's children were used in the generation of my grandmother. Anton was a popular name 60+ years ago, and had a resurrection about 20 years ago. Last year it was 16th on the list of most popular names given to newborn boys (according to svenskanamn.se).

I'm very glad to see Strålman doing well and getting some recognition, but I'm not at all surprised. I've always been confident he'd be a contributing NHL d-man. He always had the talent. He's also the kind of player who seems to improve with increased responsability. He had some great WC's for Tre Kronor 2007-2009.

Torts and Co. for sure did a great job developing his defensive game, hopefully he'll get some spark in offense too. Creating offense was always his strenght.
