Sedin - Sedin - Steen
Eriksson - Zetterberg - Franzen
Hagelin - Backstrom - Landeskog
Thornberg - Lundqvist - Pettersson
Pettersson as in Fredrik? Please. None of those 3 could play in the NHL. None. Lundqvist simply just wasn't good enough to stick.

I don't think you know anything about Zibanejad.... If I had to call one of Zib or Lundqvist a grinder, it would Zib. He'd be Sweden's most physical forward behind Landeskog.

I mean you clearly haven't seen Zib play. Or even looked at his stats.

Picking those guys above Zib would be like Canada picking AHL players over Bergeron.
