Fransson and Eriksson?

What do you think of these two Stars prospects?

How do they look so far this season?

I am a fan of both these guys.
Fransson gets quality ice time in Luleå and the coaches like him a lot. I haven't seen much of Luleå so far this season, but my understanding is that he is doing quite well despite not putting up any significant offensive numbers so far.

Loui has received quite a bit of praise playing along side NHLers Samuel Påhlsson and PJ Axelsson. All Frölunda's lines get good ice time (they have 4 scoring lines basically, quite impressive) and I personally think that Eriksson looks more strong on the puck now This year he has more puck possession than last year, but as usual he skates just as fast and just as much. Having Tomi Kallio on the team, who is just like Eriksson a fine skater and offensively talented, Eriksson could perhaps pick up some tricks and hints since Kallio is really a treat to watch when skating with the puck in full flight.

----------
I would also like to add that the Stars prospect that receives the most attention now is defensive defenseman Nicklas Grossman. Södertälje fans are going nuts saying he is a future world class defender , but the truth is that he is doing really well and playing totally fearless.
The selection of Grossman that early.. starts to slowly make sense to me

Grossman used his body a lot, and well, yesterday to everyones joy. He rammed Henrik Sedin into the boards with a big hit in the 3rd period, it took a while before a tumbled Henrik got up on his feet again...

Grossman is already far better than Jonathan Ericsson and Johan Berggren, clearly the best defensive prospect coming from SSK in a long time. I must admit that I didn´t have any high expectations on this kid before the season, but he has really been a pleasant surprise.

Great news, thanks. Can any comparisons be made so far?

I don´t dare to make any comparisons, yet...

I'll go ahead and say that he reminds me of Mattias Norström

Wew.. if he even becomes half of what Norstrom is today, I'm thrilled. Would you say he has surpassed Elias Granath on the Stars defensive prospect depthchart?

I´d say so.

Both are a lock for coming Junior WC in Grand Forks i think.
