I agree, Järnkrok has just as little chance of succeeding in the NHL as Rundblad.

So Elias Lindholm's stat line in the playoffs was 4gp 0g 0a -5. Not very pretty numbers but Brynäs was simply overwhelmed in this series, Lindholm was OK based on the two games I watched.

Anyway, his regular season was great and only four other U19 players have had higher point totals in the SEL.

1. Daniel Sedin (LW) 1998-1999 MODO 50 21 21 42
2. Markus Näslund (LW) 1991-1992 MODO 39 22 18 40
3. Tomas Sandström (RW)1982-1983 Brynäs 36 23 14 37
4. Henrik Sedin (C) 1998-1999 MODO 49 12 22 34
5. Elias Lindholm (C/RW) 2012-2013 Brynäs 48 11 19 30
6. Magnus Pääjärvi (LW/RW) 2009-2010 Timrå 49 12 17 29
7. Niklas Andersson (LW) 1989-1990 Frölunda 38 10 19 29
8. Peter Forsberg (C) 1991-1992 MODO 39 9 18 27
9. Nicklas Bäckström (C) 2005-2006 Brynäs 46 10 16 26
10. Kjell Dahlin (F) 1981-1982 Timrå 36 16 7 23

Great news IMHO, will give him every chance to succeed and develop.

I get your point here, but coaches are far more patient with a guy like Järnkrok and much more likely to insert a forward like Järnkrok in a developing depth role than a defenceman like Rundblad.

That's a nice, comfortable step to take. Both Erik Gustafsson (Oilers), Åberg (Preds), Nilsson (Leafs) who have been standouts are doing the right thing by taking the small step upwards in their home country. Wikstrand should've done that as well but he was obviously not comfortable leaving right now, so we'll see how that goes.

Gustafsson? He's been **** except for a short time this season. 99 out of 100 are probably happy he's gone

Sucks that Åberg leavs though but hopefully Wennberg will stay for another season

The linemate argument in Järnkrok vs Lindberg goes both ways though. Lindberg has up until this season mostly played on the fourth line with low producing guys like Melker Karlsson, Martin Lundberg, Johan Forsberg and Petter Emanuelsson. Even now he's playing with Karlsson and Emanuelsson on the third line (but they're acting and producing like they're the top line.)

Still, Järnkrok is your typical "star" who probably needs a top-2 role. Lindberg is the two-way guy with a bit of a mean streak who even if his offense doesn't transition could take on a grinding role like the one he had during his first seasons in SEL.

Yeah, just meant I think it's often the right way to go to avoid stagnation.

He does. Saw him here in Örebro, easily best player on ice even if his team lost 5-2.

Jarnkrok is going to play a 9 game stint in Grand Rapids before going back to Europe. What should we expect from him? Will his style suit well with the NA style?

Looks like he'll be playing with Jurco

Yes, HV71 was eliminated in the quarterfinals (by Linköping). Karlsson had two assists in five games.

No. He'll finish his season this weekend when the junior playoffs are over.

William Karlsson has been named to the National team games April 3 & 5 against Slovakia. I.e. he has a shot to make the World Champs roster.

Not really. There's already four European based forwards named as core, and then there's all the possible NHLers and semifinal SEL teams' players. Outside of those who have already been named as core players, I think we'll see one player at most from this camp(there's three camps in total + Czech hockey games) make the final team. As of today players like Backstrom, Eriksson, Johansson, Backlund, Hornqvist, Landeskog are missing the playoffs.

I don't think it's realistic to assume that he's going to be on a WC-roster but on the other side - Pär Mårts is a bad coach, so basically anything can happen.

Thanks for the information. I appreciate it. We can use another great Swede. I go back to the Bengt Gustafsson days. He was a joy to watch.

Looks like Wennberg is heading to Frölunda, along with the rest of the WJC team.

Edit: And there's another one, Djuse will also go there according to Aftonbladet.

Even the WJC coach is going there. Thank god for Ronnberg at least, otherwise they'd have 3 veterans playing 40 minutes per game.

I'm not quite sure how they're gonna fit in all of Nilsson, Gustafsson, Djuse on the blueline and Collberg, Wennberg, Johnson, Karlsson, Rydahl up front. And what about Burakovsky? Assuming all those players really go there. But hey, it looks exciting.
