Lander being extremely underrated, his adjustment phase to North American hockey is taking a while but high potential, no doubts. Very allround player with natural leadership skills, could be a clutch player. Hopefully he will prove his offensive skills as well. I believe he scored a couple of goals vs Texas Stars in AHL playoffs recently with 4-5 shots on goal / game. Not sure if he is injured right now though?
Edit: Lander played some very good games vs Texas Stars but is now injured:
Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick 2m
Officially diagnosed as a "lower-body injury," Lander could be out for a while.
Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick 4m
#OKCBarons will be without Anton Lander tonight in Gm 4 vs. Texas (Barons lead series 2-1). Big loss. Had scored 4-1-5 in 6 playoff games.
Don't want any of them and I think Lander has always been overrated, he is a very average player to my eyes. Hagelin, Johansson, Zibanejad, Stalberg, Kruger, Silfverberg, Steen, Berglund, Landeskog and Hornqvist are all better options in my mind.
