They work in demotion/promotion, so if you're on a bad team then you're basically screwed.
Might I also say that Leksands, Filip Forsberg's team, is also in Allsvenskan. And also on that team is Jacob de La Rose, who you have at 20.
The difference between him and the other older player is size, playing the NA style already, Mantha for sure is having a better season.
Exactly, my point is, Forsberg IS playing in the same league and you can see how much better he is. Forsberg is a few months older, that's all and the difference is huge!
Wennberg is not producing at an unbelievable rate either. Filip Forsberg last year was producing better than Wennberg is this year. Not to mention more intangibles.
