I think he's pretty much a guarantee to be a solid middle pairing guy. But playing in the SEL at a young age prompted some uninformed posters here to pump his tires. I was never of the belief he'd be anything to write home about.

So Urbom waived, Larsson scratches, who is next? God their fanbase is special.
The kid was the fourth pick in the draft. His lofty projection extended far beyond a few posters on this site. He was the top-ranked European in both the midterm and final CSS rankings, and the Lindstrom comparisons were parroted by pundits and scouts alike.
