I'll admit I'm completely biased about Wennberg and I've only watched DIF games online (but I'm in Stockholm right now ) What impresses me about Wennberg is that he was able to put up points where ever he was in the DIF lineup with many different teammates. 32 points in 46 games in Allsvenskan is incredibly good for an 18 year old and it wasn't all due to his linemates. In fact, I think he was able to help his linemates more than they helped him. It's hard to gauge hockey sense, but Wennberg has it and he has speed and knows how to use it. He doesn't have the slick puck skills but rarely do those work in the NHL like they do juniors or Europe.
