Meh, the Islanders already have a ton of 3rd line prospects with a tiny chance of something better.

Best of luck for him anyway.

Sundstrom has the potential to be a 50-60 point powerfoward who can play in all situations. If you look at his SEL numbers, they are low because he plays on the fourth line.

Just saying what they said when he was drafted.

Ceiling is nice, but prospects rarely work that way.

Teams need 3rd liners too. Having more breads competition and those who you dont want make decent trade chips.

That's a fair point. I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

He is not a tremendous skater. He's got a good technique for a big guy, but he's not lightning fast or anything.

Make more breads, convert into chips.

I see your master plan, donut man.

By the time he finishes growing, he'll be 6'3" 210 pounds-220 pounds, most guys that size don't have blazing speed, expect for Overchkin/Kovalchuk types. From what I saw in the WJHC, he played a smart overall game, In the shootout win, it was his smart play to knock down a high boad clearing pass, and pass it in front to Collberg (I believe) to tie it late. I think he could be a fine 3rd line center, or even a 2nd line wing.

Mostly talks about how he is set to play in the AHL this year and have a big role on the ice. Knows he needs to pay his dues to get to the NHL. Has talked to Ullstrom and Perrson a lot. Sounds like a very professional kid.

Sounds to be a very serious dedicated kid.
He was a solid early 2nd round pick and will grow into his 6'3" frame. Projected 2 way centerman with size who can put up 50+ points is always a good thing to have in the prospect pool.
He could get off to a very good start in NA with his buddy John Persson in BPort although I think Ullstrom will be on NYI.

With everything I have read and seen about this kid I have to say, Sundstrom sounds like he could be our version of Ryan Kesler. They are comparable in a lot of respects and if Sundstrom can develop the way he is projected too we could see him sooner rather than later.

I liked what I saw from Sundstrom at the WJC. Love his size and the fact that he was getting quite a bit of ice time at the tourney. His versatility is also a big plus. I hope he has a strong season at the Bridge this upcoming season because he really could surprise.

That would be a dream.

Let's see if he can have a rookie AHL year a bit like Ullstrom's was.

There are some in Sweden who don't really think he's being too wise coming over at this point. Some think he really could use another year of SEL first.

We'll soon find out.

Kesler's game thrives on his speed. Johan doesn't have that kind of speed.

Johan does have skill, more than Persson and Ullstrom.

Looking forward to seeing this prospect develop.

Also Kesler has a damn strong shot.

Kesler was not very good in his 1st five seasons, in fact many Canucks fans wanted to trade him. Lucky enough they didn't and developed into a good player. Patience is very important in any sports, so trading away some of our top prospects for the now would probably bite us in the rear eventually. Bailey for example will be a good player, just let him develop.
