Detailed responses would be appreciated.
He isn't!

I am not sure if I want to take poision on it, but best case -- more or less (could potentially be more I guess, but that's a real long shot) -- is in the lines of Filpulla/Hagelin/Callahan for Jesper Fasth.

I figure absolut best case for Oscar Lindbergh is say Travis Zajac, and now we are definitely talking the highest end of potential a lá John LeClair. Comparing OL with Zajac is like comparing Christian Thomas with Brian Gionta, if you get what I mean.

I think Fasth is more likely to become a high end player, in the form of a very good 2nd-3rd line winger (and nowadays that means you definitely is an ok option to fill out on a 1st).

The term is thrown around alot with Soccer players, in a negative sense.
