Lindholm is the Swedish cream of the crop this year. Comparable to Nicklas Bäckström. Major steal if he drops anywhere out of the top-10. Wennberg is a very talented positional player, always available. Steal if taken out of the top-20.

Then there's a big gap down to Burakovsky and Hägg. Some people had a lot of hype and love for Burakovsky earlier on this season which was kinda uncalled for since he definitely lacks the brain to make use of his amazing tools (better than both Wennberg and Lindholm).

Agree, i think Lindholm is a solid pick because he is consistent and good at so many things. he hits, scores, makes smart plays, solid defensively.

Wennberg have a amazing ability to create a scoring chance from nothing, often with a deke that turns a not so dangerous play into a 2 vs 1. The ability to know when to dangle and when not to dangle.

I was at the U15 region Camp in Gnesta this week for the best players in Stockholm. They played 3 games and i attended them all. Only 2-3players impressed me really much.


1. Pontus Karlsson
(http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=227228)

Fast ​​skater and very skilled with the puck. Frequently delivers hard-hits. Shoots probably the hardest in his age group in Sweden. Make a lot of goals and won the scoring league at the camp. Has the exact same style of play as Alexander Ovechkin. No boxplay player but good in front of goal or as a pointman in PP. Can transport the puck all ocer the rink and uses his big body and strength to protect the puck.

2. Jonathan Rodensjö
( http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=177970 )

also a fast skater, works hard in defensive zone and transport the puck in the neutral zone. has good hockey sense and often makes smart passes. same style of play as Henrik Zetterberg. Uses his stick very good in Boxplay. Can make big plays.


These two players together with Maybe Alex Nylander in TV-Pucken would be interesting to see.

How has Gortz looked so far for Färjestad. He looks like he is starting to get on a role offensively.

Haven't seen much of Färjestad this year but Görtz always impresses me.

You have to say that there's been quite a few impressive seasons. No bigger breakouts than Lindberg and Bäckman imo.

i think John Klingberg has a couple of points more than that.

Hoping to see Backman at this year WCH. The late NHL season should give him a chance.

Bäckman is a very good all-round D but he does not have any elite tools that could make him a scorer in the NHL, his season is impressive nonetheless.

Magnus Nygren won the Borje Salming award for best dman in the SEL.

Just how big, or little is that award ?

Foreigners can't win the award, so it's not that special. The best D-men in the SEL this season were all North Americans. It still acknowledges he had a good season though.

Considering that Ekholm won it last year even though there probably were at least 10-12 (probably more) defensemen better him you shouldn't put too much focus on the award. Nygren has had a really good season though.

Awards in SEL/Swedish hockey are a joke and shouldn't be taken seriously.

I can't judge the competition but Forsberg looks to have legit NHL skills there. Thanks for posting.

Could someone try comparing Aberg to Burakowsky for me? From what I understand they're both speedy wingers, with good work ethic and scoring ability. But I'd like to know more.

Oscar Lindberg leads his team through four straight wins in the quarter finals. Six points in four games. He's been impressive.

Järnkrok of the opposing team was bleak throughout the whole serie and didnt log a single point. What is Järnkroks problem? Playing with injury? Or is he simply lacking that extra gear that is needed in the playoffs?

I really like Jarnkrok, he is skilled enough to become a top six forward in the NHL. He is however afraid of physical contact, that became very obvious this series. I thought he would be closer to being NHL-ready by now, he still has a long way to go. I've watched most Brynäs games this season and he has not met my expectations, especially after christmas.

I couldn't see any signs of an injury since he was skating fine and also playing physical at times, but I guess you never know really. I think his biggest problem was the frustration that built up from not being able to finish, as they only scored 4 goals in 4 games and three of those came in one game. Even tonight he had some good chances but there were a couple in which he didn't shoot quick enough and the D was already all over him. He has a great shot but he should use it even more. I think he's not quite ready to be that leading star on a team especially in the playoffs when it is needed the most. But he definitely has the tools to be a great player and he'll also have a great chance to develop behind Zetterberg during the next couple of years.

I don't think he's afraid, but he's just physically not yet developed. He still needs to add weight and strenght to succeed at that level. At least tonight he wasn't afraid of contact (2 hits), and I haven't noticed that earlier either. Some times he might shy away from it since he'll probably be leveled, but that's different from fear.

I don't think Järnkrok needs to be defended, he's a good player on his own and he had a pretty good season overall. But, he's played with a 17/18 year old(a great one but first year) and Thuresson/Wännström/Molin on his line this season. Wännström didn't record a single point after returning from NA, Molin is not even a regular, Thuresson didn't reach 20 points. The line mate argument is far too big to overlook. He still finished with respectable output, and actually more than last year. His defensive game has probably improved more than his offensive game this season however.

Comparing guys like Järnkrok and Lindberg over a four game sample though would be vague. It's literally the first time ever Lindberg has outproduced Järnkrok. Regular season comparison: Järnkrok 13 goals(team 2nd), 29 assists(1st), 42 points(1st) in 53 games, his team scored 123 goals(34,1% involvement). Lindberg had 18 goals(4th), 25 assists(4th), 42 points(3rd) in 55 games, his team scored 170 goals(24,7%). So if you looked the two up on eliteprospects, you'd go wow Lindberg scored more goals and as many points as Calle and also going on a heck of a playoff run. But with context it's apples and oranges. That's not to say Lindberg isn't having a great, breakout season.

Yet you put a big effort into defending him

I'm concerned about his lack of physical presence and his ability to disappear when the traffic gets tough. This issue needs to be resolved if he's going to contend for a top-six spot in the NHL. But from today on, he's got plenty of time to spend in the gym.
