Most talented Swede ever to play hockey?

Which of these players do you think is the most talented swede ever to play hockey?

Which player had the most talent?

(not in order)

Peter Forsberg - the total package that sadly included countless injuries.
Kent Nilsson - Extremely skilled player who was also very lazy
Robert Burakovsky - Some say is the most talented swede ever, but was lazy as ****
Patrik Sundstrom - His career could been even better, scored 8p in one NHL match
Hakan Loob - Only swede to score 50 in NHL, went home to sweden too early

All the old time greats will never get a fair chance since they didn't have any success in the NHL. But consider Svedberg, Sterner, Pettersson, Nilsson*, Lundvall, Wickberg and all the rest who I forgot to mention.

Edit: *Nisse Nilsson

Personally I think Kent Nilsson, if he just had Forsbergs killer instinct he would of scored 170points

Lidstrom.

I think, many people make mistake when they say about talent they mean flashy. That's not right, IMO Lidstrom is a sort of hockey genius who has a great understanding of the game.

It's kinda like many people told that Andre Agassi is much more talented than Pete Sampras, and Marat Safin/Andy Roddik are much more talented than Rodger Federer. That's not truth.

As taboo as it may be to go against Lidstrom, I'd say it was Salming. He was just incredible.

The obvious one's.. Forsberg, Nilsson, Lidstrom.

Then there's guy's like..

Lennart "Lill-Strimma" Svedberg (My dad still holds him as the best player to ever come from Sweden)

Or how about this guy, only Swede to win the Vezina, and the first goalie from europe to do so.

It have to be Sterner. If he would have been born 20 years later he could have been a dominant player in hockey. Or am I just sucking up to much of the storys about him.

And Lill-Strimma was something special as well according the older guys at my work place.

since peter worrell was ruled out, i think it's quite obvious that it's dubbel-nisse. i am a single nisse and i'm a great guy. so a dubbel-nisse has to be like god. simple math.

I think I'll vote Svedberg too, I mentioned him in my first post and I do not think I ever seen anyone control the play like he did. He looked like a hybrid between Lidström and Forsberg.

Being that i'm from Timrå, i'll put my vote on Lennart "lill-Strimma" Svedberg (who is from Timrå also, his jersey hangs in E-ON Arena). He was obviously before my time but Timrå is a hockeycommunity so i've heard some of the stories.

Lill-Strimma was scary talented, he could've been the first swede in NHL if he wanted to (he rejected Detroit seeing the trip to the states as a paid vacation or something ). Tarasov attended his funeral, he has said that Lill-Strimma was the only foreigner he wanted on his team (CSKA) or something of that nature.

Kenta Nilsson. In SVT.ses archive there is a nice interview with him from his playing days. It has him saying that many of his teammates saw hockey just as a job, and he started doing that as well.

Burra wasn't really that talented. He skating was pretty avg et c.

But he had a amazing shot and offensive instincts and when he tryed he dominated in Europe.

Maybe not most talented but most Complete i have Defender Lidström

Forward Zetterberg i like players who playes for the Team and not only think Points. BÅG was one off my favorite players also but i hate him as coach.
