At least in one aspect I'm pretty sure he will be...

Forsberg was matched with Karlsson and Åberg early this season.. And that line was the plan before last tournament aswell I think. The other two stayed together but got filled in by different guys(Burakovsky, Wennberg) with Forsberg out. I always got the feel they tried to make that trio a leading line, similar to how they had Sundström-Larsson-Friberg all of last year, but without Åberg it's possible they'll just blow it up.

Forsberg-Karlsson-Arvidsson is a line I'd like to see tried out myself.

Figured I'd post an update on Hampus. His first few shifts back from injury were pretty awful to tell you the truth. He was making a bunch of bone headed decisions but as the game went on and the Admirals started hitting their stride he got it going. Even better against Binghamton but he's still not quite the happy surprise he was pre injury. We don't exaggerate when he say that he's been Norfolk best defenseman. And as an 18 year old in a professional league, that's impressive. If he can return to former in time for the tournament its good news for Sweden.
Thanks for the update. The last part does not surprise me, he was Rögle's best defenseman late in the season last year, too.

Well...from what I've seen...and I'm not here to bash collberg. But that ability to quickly drive to the net seems to be his only real selling point. Defensively he kind of just sits around waiting for the puck to go the other way, offensively, yeah he has a great rush and a hard shot but he had trouble distributing and receiving passes. And I don't really remember being very adept at forechecking. But I haven't watched him at all this year so maybe he's improved. But as for his fall, yeah going to 33 is a bit harsh but I can see why maybe he wasn't considered in the top 15.
He's got an elite-level shot. Right now his path to the NHL does not seem cut out, but if/when he can figure out how to maximize the impact and get himself into scoring situations more often, he can be great.

He's got many good qualities, but if he can't utilize his shot, he's not an NHL talent necessarily.

Pretty decent along the board for a kid his size too. The thing he needs to work on the most IMO is lower body strength, and get his speed back. He was absolutely flying out on the ice at age 15-16, now not so much and I think that it might be because of to much focus on upper body strength.

TSN will broadcast those games so they can likely be viewed on demand afterwards

The pre game against Canada has been aired on SVT before so it should probably be this year aswell

Well Forsberg does say his favorite player to play with is William Karlsson so you gotta think they're going to be inseparable (god, that plus the fact that he says he models his game after Getzlaf, and Perry, and his game does resemble Perry's at times, AND his name is Forsberg, AND he's got all that talent, I wanted Forsberg so bad. I thought that when he was still available, it would be a no brainer pick. I even said "that's why we didn't Forsberg. Murray has no brain ")

He's got an elite-level shot. Right now his path to the NHL does not seem cut out, but if/when he can figure out how to maximize the impact and get himself into scoring situations more often, he can be great.

It's not just his shot he needs to utilize though. I distinctly remember he has issues handling the puck as well as distributing and receiving it. I mean you can chalk that up to youth and inexperience but he's gotta diversify his game if he wants to make an NHL impact. I think his speed and his shot will put him in the NHL but that doesn't mean he'll be useful. Guys with one dimension to their game aren't very valuable. But he's got time to develop. I always said to the people who were predicting Collberg would go before Forsberg that you could almost guarantee it wouldn't happen, that there was a reason scouts had Forsberg as the top european prospect. Forsberg shows skills in many different avenues of the game. He shows maturity in his decisions even if the execution isn't quite there yet. Even Teravainen over Collberg made sense, but I thought he still should've gone around 19-25.

Many Swedish players are. Not as focused on core strength as North Americans from early age it seems.

There must be some otherworldly connection between Devils fans and Sweden. I'm with you on this one.

When can we expect Sweden's roster to be released? In past years they are usually the earliest team to reveal their squad.

We have some exhibition-games some days before WJC starts. If I remember correctly there'll be cuts made after them. One wing and one D I reckon.

Saw Rask play in Red Deer last night. He was the best player on the ice when he seemed to have his head in the game. That was about half his shifts and enough to get him the GWG late in the third. How can a guy that be so dominant one shift and then be so invisible the next time never ceases to amaze me. Sick hands though. Score a beauty.

You may be right. But was under the impression that we were icing 7 D 13 FW? one D will be cut, that's for sure. Right now we have 14 FW, how many players can you register? Wasn't Boyce the only extra last year? did anyone take Åberg's place? My memory fails me.
