Is it possible the next Peter Forsberg could be plucked from a standout list of international prospects when the 2013 NHL Draft is held June 28-29 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.?

Goran Stubb, European Director of NHL Central Scouting, thinks so. Based on his early assessment of Swedish center Elias Lindholm, it's easy to see why Stubb considers the 17-year-old one of the top draft-eligible prospects from Europe.

Lindholm, a 5-foot-11 3/4, 181-pound righty-shooting center, projects to be a future top-six NHL forward with star potential. He's also regarded as an A prospect on Central Scouting's preliminary list of the top European players to watch entering the 2012-13 season.

"He's a complete package," Stubb told NHL.com. "He could very well be the next Peter Forsberg. He's an excellent skater and great competitor who gives it 110 percent on every shift. He can skate, score and pass and is physically strong even though he is a finesse-type of player."
Just one scout's opinion, and most likely just a comparison in play style, not talent level.

You know what, I was going to laugh at you but then I realized, "my god he's right!". We suck as developing Dmen. However our team is a center developing factory! Draft a center trade one of ours for a good Dman already.

I think Lindholm is more of a Backstrom like player than Forsberg IMO.

Honestly we drafted the closest thing to Forsberg since Forsberg himself that Ive seen anyways, and that's Landeskog.

If Landeskog continues to grow offensively that comparison will only be solidified. You just don't see players hit other players while carrying the puck effectively like Landeskog can and Forsberg was famous for.

And I do think Landeskog's offensive IQ is underrated and gets overshadowed by the physical part of his game. During the All-Star skills competition they had Landeskog stick handling and he looked flawless as well.

I just think any future rookie is going to have a hard time coming closer to Forsberg than Landeskog does. IMO of course...

I'd love the Avs to get Josh Morrissey if they get a 10-15 pick.

I agree that this is the franchise's best bet going forward.

I'd rather the Avs trade the pick in a package for a top D man to play with EJ if they can. As good as a D prospect may look, they're still unproven at the NHL level, and I'd rather not wait the 4+ years it's gonna take for them to be consistent enough to partner with EJ on the top line. They need a guy like that right now. The UFA route doesn't look that great, and is unpredictable, and they don't have a lot of quality assets to use in a trade outside of Stastny and his $6.6M.

Plus, you look at top D prospects like Hedman and Larrson, or even possibly EJ when it's all said and done. They look like they'll be solid defenseman, but they haven't done much to suggest they'll be that legit number one Ryan Suter/Shea Weber/Chris Pronger type.

Use the first to turn your biggest weakness into a strength, and because you have a lot of young talent on the team and in the pipeline already.

It would depend on the defensmen that we could get in return.

We would have to get a high draft pick if we wanted to turn it for a #1 defensemen, and even then would have to add a little.

The last big name defensemen that comes to mind that was trade on draft day was Chris Pronger for Lupul, Sbisa, 2009 1st round draft pick, 2010 1st round draft pick, and 2010 or 2011 3rd round draft pick.

Yes, definitely. They shouldn't be trading a 1st round pick for a guy like Quincey.

The Avs don't have a lot of pieces with high value outside of trading Duchene. Adding an expected mid to high 1st to a package may be the only way to get them in the discusion, if a team is willing to part with a guy.

Excellent subject but it is too soon.

My logic says: we pick the best player available no matter what but if you ask me, which position should we pick, my answer will depend on a lot of things, future trade, the development of young players ....

At this moment, we need a power play dman

you say this without even have seen him play?


Elias Lindholm got nice puckskills but he is also very gritty and likes to dish out hits. he was hitting everything that moved last game, in SEL, mens league, 17 years old...

RS probably agrees with me here, but I've been able to watch the hitmen over the last couple weeks and one guy who is standing out more and more is Greg Chase.

His gamestyle is a lot like Olver, pest, drives to the net hard, gets in fights, but what separates him to Olver is Chase has way better speed and skating ability with some slick, awesome stick handling. He definitely would be a very solid 2nd rounder.

Is he similar to Sgarbossa?

I would say that Sgarbossa's vision and hockey sense destroys Chase, but I would also say that his (Chase) talent and gamestyle is in between Sgarbossa and Olver.

E: But Chase does have vision and hockey sense of his own and is fairly good, just not on Sgarbossa's level IMO.

If they used the same rules as last time, it'd be a snake draft, so the Avs wouldn't have the 31st pick, they'd have the last pick of the 2nd round.

That is why I love GI's post of getting the 10-15th pick and selecting Josh Morrissey. The guy is going to be a great two-way defenseman and we still get to be close, towards the middle for the rest of the draft.
