Karlsson's gonna log big minutes for Sweden at the WJC aswell, right now looks like the 1st line C.
Thanks a lot! And great to hear!

As much as i know he should put up some weight to be even more successfull.

Görtz has taken big steps this season. Åberg played with Landeskog and Hörnqvist in their first game together..

He's surprised positively and been impressing for his age. His wrist shot is wicked for SEL..

How is Friberg looking?

From our side, Hampus Lindholm has been promoted to top pairing with Mat Clark. He appears to be coming out of his shell, offensively speaking, and he's taking more chances and showing less hesitation. Sweden's blue line looks like they've got a decade of dominance ahead of them.

Åberg looked pretty good that game. Created some scoring chances with his speed. Had some good slappers from the point on PP as well.

He still has major issues with his consistency both in games and between games, it almost feels like he is less consistent now than he was last year even though he is better at his best now than he was at his best last year.

Last year he was a few steps ahead Rautio (the other goaltender in Luleå) but this year Rautio is clearly ahead and would most likely be the starter if Luleå was going into the playoffs now. Rautio is currently out with a concussion so Gustafsson will get a few games and it his chance to take back the advantage.

Is Forsberg still on the 3rd line?

He's disappeared since then and I have feeling the coach is now using that to justify him moving him down the third line. Vicious cycle.

Jensen was his team's leading scorer, then had a goal and an assist game right before being demoted to the fourth line stymying him as well.

The seniority system in the SEL is really frustrating for fans(like me) who aren't used to it.

It seems to be a North America vs World in terms of coaching styles for hockey. Other young players in other leagues are leading their teams in scoring, but not getting any ice time.

He's been out with an injury the last two games (should return soon). He played on the second line again the game before his injury and had an assist if I recall correctly.

Jensen was on the 2nd line today. He had 2nd most ice time amongst forwards according to Hockeyligan. I only noticed him on the ice 2 times, so I have no idea if that is accurate or not.

Anyway, I wouldn't worry about him being on 4th or 3rd for a game or two, coaches like to shuffle lines A LOT when teams are doing bad in SEL.

It's not about seniority, it's about being responsible on both ends of the ice and playing a tactically intelligent game.
And young players are inexperience in that part of the game.

Such an intelligent response. And you're atleast partly wrong. It depends on the team, you can't make any such claim about Skellefteå or Brynäs regarding giving youngsters opportunity. The SEL isn't all about Wikegårdian crash and bang hockey, that's an easy task for any adrenalin-pumped 18year old for a game or two but I haven't seen anyone beside Adam Larsson being able to play his game from the get go without any real bumps along the road playing any real minutes for his club.

Oilers prospect Oscar Klefbom might need surgery on his injured shoulder which would put an end to his season, according to GM Steve Tambellini

He's not as smart and skilled so he can't control the game in the same way Lindholm will be able to. He's got good speed and decent hands and vision, though, but lacks a bit of finish to be a more dangerous offensive forward. Speedy and brave, though. I like him more than Jacob de la Rose, for instance, and he's showed more at a high level than anyone but Lindholm, even though Burakowksy's upside is undeniable.

I think his strength is that he doesn't have a real weakness. Lindholm is first line material, Wennberg more in the top6 mold skill-wise.
