It is very hard to tell. The step for a young guy to go from bottom six in the second tier(Allsvenskan), and then a year later play in a top 6 role in SHL (former Elitserien/SEL) is really big. I'm almost certain that JDLR is going to end up playing in the third line, as the roster is almost identical to the one who got promoted, and that he'll also get the chance to kill off a few penalties.
I absolutely think that de la Rose is going to get more ice time by the coaches than Sebastian Collberg (who averaged 10minutes/game) got in Frölunda.
But I'll have to get back to you in about a month when team starts their practices on ice and play some preseason games, before I can promise anything.
