The speed needed to make his physical play effective is slowly disappearing but who know what he can come up with when it's the NT.

He's one of those guys we need to find someone who can replace within a year or two IMO.
Yeah Dresler is at the end of his career and since he has been a Bäckman favourite then he will likely be on the 4'th line if he still has it in him. Even if aging he should be able to play a WC on full steam. But we really need to find a substitute - but who?

You are thinking Lassen would actually be the best of the mentioned guys? He was a big disappointment in Allsvenskan but have had an excellent season for Herning. But is he a longer term 4'th liner for Denmark? Him and Patrick Bjørkstrand are physically fairly equal and could be future wingers for this line until we found a center that can replace Dresler there?
Bäckman have had Bjarke Møller in and out of the NT.....can you see him in this role?
