Don't know much about Forsberg but if we can't get Grigs, he'd be my second choice. He's got the size.

FYI - Glachenyuk is now 6'2", 205lbs... He's in fact bigger than Grigorenko.

I've only been reading a little bit and looking at stats. Can a educated HF scout pro fill me in?


1. Forsbergs stats are so lame compared to everyone else. nActually really super lame. What's the hype on the kid?

2. So Grigo is potentially lazy. Kovalev lazy or Kostitsyn lazy?

3. Galchenyuk? Is it possible if he played this year he might be a #1 pick? or easy # 2?


If Galchenyuk is only falling because of injury and would be a clear 1 or 2 ? I say grab him. How much of his stats are Nail inflated? Kind of like Sergie's stats because of Kane in his draft year or is Galchenyuk legit?

I'd pick Ken Dryden.

"I'm so confused". In a Vinnie Bobarino voice!!!

Bigger? Yes.

Taller? No.

Difference is miniscule.

Galchenyuk may solidify himself over Grigorenko if the current play-off trend continues.

He plays against men in an adult league, not against kids.


And yeah, I vote Forsberg.

Ill go Gally due to the fact that he is more intense than Grigo.

Don't know a lot about the prospects this year but :

Think we should forget BPA and draft a forward

Grigorenko scares the hell out of me : Do not want another Kostitsyn situation (mega skills, questionnable compete level, constant disappointment)

Galchenyuk is really intriguing ; and he's a center which would be great

Voted Forsberg

Forsberg is 17 playing against grown men, and he's not getting a lot of minutes mostly playing 3rd line minutes.

He could be NHL ready next year, or he could be sent back which wouldn't be a bad idea since he's playing in a very good league.

Hopefully this helps:

Just a few facts:

*Allsvenskan has 6 "point per game"-players
*QMJHL has 46 "point per game"-players
*WHL has 54 "point per game"-players

Filip Forsberg plays about half of his games on the 3rd line and the rest on the 4th line, while most of the top prospects from QMJHL/WHL plays on the first line.

Forsberg, as a 17 years old, this season had 17p (the second best 17 year old had 4p)

For the previous years for the best 17 years old in Allsvenskan:
10/11 = 11p (Victor Rask)
09/10 = 6p
08/09 = 17p (Ekman-Larsson playing first pairing)
07/08 = No player
06/07 = 3p (Mikael Backlund)
05/06 = 4p (Patrik Berglund

Important to notice is also that he is only a few weeks away from being 2013 eligable (born 13 August 1994). While 17 points might not be great for a top pick, it's hardly bad due to his young age, his time on the 3rd/4th line and Allsvenskan's relatively low scoring.

Very insightful. thanks

I want Forsberg!
