I think if we could trade up in the draft for him, we should do it.
He appears to be in the 10-20 range as is. Considering that we have no 2nd or 3rd and Sutters draft past, he will most likely trade down to get a 3rd. Unless we are within the top 20 then anything after that is really all a crap shoot.

He is. Would be a very nice pick-up. I like the Swedes and Fins.
Oh, now this guy is here. Very potential player with great puck skills. I haven't noticed that comment where he said that flames is something like his favorite team to be drafted. That's very nice to hear and he has so much talent, that I think that he is going to be drafted in the first round.
It is too early to say, which team will pick him, but some team does and it wouldn't be bad, if Flames is that team
According to the hockey writers he is ranked 17th in this years draft so with a tough year we would be able to select him. Not to say even if the flames do have a good year he could slip down a few spots from his predicted ranking and the flames could choose him.
