You also have to remember that these massive guys usually take their time to develop. Chara didn't exactly scream superstar his first couple of seasons in the NHL.
Very true. If he does develop, the Hawks have a major gem. Most big or huge guys compensate by having excellent positioning since skating will always be an issue, especially at that size.

Svedberg Elite Prospects -



Not saying whomever wrote up the description for Elite is definitive however you would think anyone 6'9" has skating issues.
Yeah, don't think anything you just posted contradicted what I posted.

Didn't say he could skate as well as Hammer, just that they play a similar style, thought that was clear.

"A two-way defenseman in the Swedish junior league, but likely to develop into a more defensive minded type of player in the future."
"decent enough positioning"
"Plays the body to some extent"
"Pretty active stick."

He's very raw but keeps improving and it will be interesting to see him on NA ice.

Svedberg

There's only 1 Chara. The guy is pretty mean and has a massive shot as well. I don't know anything about this kid, but the big kids need more time to get their coordination down. Hopefully, he'll show enough in prospect camp to keep the Hawks interested.

Posted this in the Prospects thread but I came away really impressed with what I saw of him. As I said in that thread, it was one session, and a practice session at that, so a small sample size but I was impressed with how well he skated and how smooth his hands and feet both were for a guy so big and so young. He moves really well for a guy that tall. He's still lanky, which is to be expected for a kid his age and you expect he'd grow into his body a bit and fill out. I'm really interested to see him in real game action Wednesday. In the game-situation type drills today he was doing very well. He's not overly physical but his positioning is very good and he knows how to use his body effectively. With his wing span and stick length he's a major pain to try and get around and with his skating ability it makes it even tougher. Definitely look forward to Wednesday and see how he is during real game play. I'm intrigued by him, to say the least.

Maybe he can replace Stalberg next year and nobody will know the difference.

Easiest way to see a players true potential. McNeil is an awesome 3rd line center in the 2014 season so I trade holland. We should be good on 3c next year

Okay, we get it.. you're a scout. Can you stop shoving that fact down our throats? We all know how cool you are, okay?

I had a brain cramp and thought OP was a typo along with a sarcastic post about Stalberg's skating ability.
