Sidenote, looking in the first round, a good number of Swedes drafted in the NHL have turned out to be legit allstars, or have a pretty good chance of becoming one.
Already shown tons of promise in the NHL are the bolded (Karlsson, Landeskog, OEL, Hedman, Larsson, Brodin), and players with the potential to be high impact players like Rakell, Klefbom, and Erixon.
Then theres a bunch of passable 2nd tier players, Backlund, Tedenby, MPS, Josefson, Johansson who are still young and have room to grow.
The only bust was Gustafsson, and really the only other one so far the only other possible one is Rundblad (He still has a lot of time though).
I just found that pretty interesting. If you count the 2012 draft, Lindholm and Forsberg both moved up in the post-draft rankings.
