I don't get it.
If you could also explain the difference between Silfverberg wanting to play in Sweden, and Filatov wanting to play in Russia, I would appreciate that as well.
All three are 22.
In my defence, I've been writing off Petersson as a one-dimensional, "nothing special" player for years now. He's the kind of prospect you get excited about when your farm system sucks and you don't really have any blue-chip guys. He's a wishing on a star, "Josh Hennessey"- type prospect.
In a system as deep as our is, he's a one-trick pony whose trick isn't enough to get him to the NHL on it's own.
