I don't think Puljujärvi is that active with his hitting game. Skellefteå offered him a contract two years ago, but he selected Kärpät, partly because he felt his Swedish wasn't good enough. He lived first 4 years
of his life in Sweden by the way.
If you had a chance to take Collberg or Jarnkrok (long term projection) which would you take...how do they compare?
None of them will amount to anything really special. Jarnkrok is probably the safer bet, and Collberg might have a little higher upside - but it is unlikely he'll ever reach that level considering his development so far.
Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Petter Granberg has come over for prospect camp, and his SEL contract is now complete.
I have never seen him play, and I was wondering for those of you who have, what can you tell me about his readiness to play in the NHL? Basically a RHD, physical Defensive D is exactly what the Leafs need in their lineup right now.
I recently did some research on juniors in Sweden's SHL league and came across a profile on www.swedishhockeynews.com and was surprised that Sandberg had not been drafted. It is amazing that with the profile/resume that he has that he has not been picked up by any club.
I understand he has a size issue but it certainly hasn't stopped him in his own age group, you would have to think that he will get picked up next draft...any thoughts???
He's only a good not great skater, and he's not gonna be a 5'8" grinder in the NHL like he was at the WJC. Let's see how he does in the SHL this season, if he can find a way to produce points.
