Except all 3 had concerns: Saad's offense was questioned, Grim is tiny and Jurco's "laziness" and play away from the puck were concerns. Everything we hear/see about Collberg is good. Skill, no size problem, good attitude, adequate defence to play in the SEL at a young age.

Yeah , but I figured it probably had to do with growth because of the Timmins comment you were talking about there.

Here's a pre-draft interview with Collberg by one of Frölunda's fans sites, worth a read.

Your right--it's a great read. I particularly enjoyed:

"Haha, det hade varit något! Nä, men självklart ser man upp mycket till honom."

And also when Collberg allows us some insight into his more serious side:

"Jag ser fram emot det väldigt, väldigt mycket och förhoppningsvis få spela mer än förra året. Visa att man vill vara med och slåss om en plats att spela hela året som ordinarie. Sätta dit lite mål och poäng det här året också, hade inte varit fel."

Food for thought.

........Sebastian Collberg: "I am very tense"
Expectation in the air before the night's NHL Entry draft

http://www.wildwestsupport.se/sv/pre...valdigt-spand/

Quote:
It is a happy and expectantly in 18-year-old we encounter in the music-in-gym, dunk down in Frölunda's basement. Mariestad son has not yet seen his student day, so what is already underway in Pittsburgh tonight is perhaps the first, really big *****.
-I am very tense with draften now actually. It should be really fun to go away, "he said with a broad smile the day before departure.
While the other team has just gone on much-needed time off, put himself on Wednesday on a plane across the Atlantic together with the family and the J-20, the Center Erik Karlsson.
-It is much in mind at the moment, no holiday in this way. It should be really fun to see where it ends up.
A couple of weeks ago, he was in Canada on the NHL's Scouting Combine ", an event where many of the players who are expected to go in draften get a chance to show up, perform physical tests and meet with NHL clubs. But the strong indications of which team will elect him, he has not yet received.
-No, not so. I have talked with nearly all of the law, but they have not said so holstad. Perhaps we have talked a little extra with any team, but no one has said that "we will take you". But it is more that we know that they like a little more, such stuff.
Expect, however, that Sebastian doesn't need to sit and suck on naglarna for very long.
-They say well the middle or a little later at förstarundan. They say, but it is very difficult to know.
Favorite team has always been in Toronto and the big reason is spelled as clear Mats Sundin.
-I checked a little extra on them when he played there, but now lately it is more hewn as stucket. We watch everything. Like (Alexander), Ovechkin and the guys, they are idols that we watch. It is surely more individual players looking at, not so much on specific teams.

So the dream is that you shall become new Ovechkin in a few years?
-Haha, it would have been something! Nah, but obviously if you look up a lot to him. Then perhaps I don't have quite the same style of play, he is pretty much bigger than me. A little stronger with strength and the entire package, but of course check it much on him.

NO BULLDOZER, BUT EXPECT MORE PHYSICAL CONTACT
Collberg is like any other young hockey players purposeful and knows what he needs to improve in order to take a further step forward in hockeyrinken. Frölundas training plans on the pre-season in years has meant a common training week, followed by two single. When it comes to focus and add a little extra powder on what is most important to one himself.
-Most weeks, I have been left here. It is somewhat easier to train together. But of course, I have put on a little more överkroppsträning, where I ran a little extra pass when the others have done something else. I feel I need a larger torso and over the page in General, get a little harder and stronger in the body above all – so this is what I have tried to put much weight on this during sommarträningen. Then, of course, continue developing my speed as I am good at out there on the ice. I can not only be a great guy and come out as a bulldozer next year, he laughs.
Self-knowledge, for any powerforward he probably never be. To dare to run his thing, just look at the Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson's huge success – he has not been given priority and worked hard on the defensive immediately. Fixed count yet with a slightly tougher Collberg in winter.
"It is not the case that I will go out and drive like a hard player and tackle as hell. It is not really my style. But of course, there will be enough so that it becomes a little more physical contact, when you feel stronger so that you get a little self confidence in it.
Thoughts on the coming season with Frölunda, he clear about how they look.
-I look forward to the very, very much and hopefully get to play more than last year. Show that they want to be with and fighting for a place to play all year round as usual. Set some goals and scoring this year, too, had not been wrong.
Still, there has not been any Elite Series credits, neither the goals or assists, but expect that it will take a long time. The first goal in the A-squad, he on the other hand, against the Adler Mannheim during last year's försäsongsturnering (European Trophy), when Frölunda won with clear 5-1 in frölundaborg.

It has disappeared some guys from the A-squad now, more chance for you to beat yourself seriously?
-Yeah, right. It can open up for me. But obviously, it was disappointing that we lost the men as we did, even though it might benefit me. We'll see what happens here next season, I promise that I will give everything I have. So I really hope that I get to play continuously, "he says with a smiling expectantly.

Before its await, however, a very exciting day. Clock 19 local time start this year's NHL Entry draft in Pittsburgh, located in the United States's East Coast. After a first meeting with the new Club, which he will visit to present itself on the team sommarcamp.

I told Trevor either I'm getting better as a scout or we both screwed up. I have a feeling it's the former, but you never know. The Islanders were supposed to have killed it in 2008 in the first three rounds when they picked Bailey, Trivino, Ness, Hamonic, Toews, Niemi and Petrov..
It certainly looks like we did very well in this draft. However, sometimes what looks good on paper doesn’t turn out so well in reality. I remember how happy I was during the 2006 draft when Maxwell and White, who were both, projected to go much higher, dropped to us in the second and third rounds. It was the biggest steal ever, and then it wasn’t.

Makes me think of the Danny Kristo pick- I'm just a little more optimistic about this one.

This excites me much more than Danny Kristo personally. Kristo wishes he had Collberg's hockey-IQ.

Where was Kristo projected to go?

Kristo took a big tumble in my books this year with his decision to go back to UND. Seems like Collberg has a good head on his shoulders this way.

I fail to see the difference between 6' 0" / 176 lbs and 5' 11" / 176 lbs.

Can the 1" make the difference between a 'high-end power forward' and an "easily-knocked-of-the-puck" sniper? Can this 1" make the difference between a player picked at 11 and one at 33?

Yet that 1" shorter player has been more successful than the 1" taller one in the same tournaments that they played in.


I know that this is simplistic thinking but that 1" shorter player picked at 33 is a much better 'risk' than the 1" taller player picked 11.

Comparatively speaking, I do believe we did better than Washington on this one.

Well he said that Sundin was his favourite player growing up, and that Ovechkin has been his favorite more recently. Hopefully now he has a third favorite team.

Most Europeans aren't big club fans, but rather big fans of specific players, generally from there country...

I doubt Collberg cares about the Caps or Leafs much at al...

I meant as in his new favourite team, not that he still is a Leafs and Caps fan and the Habs are third. Should have realized that was worded poorly.

For a long time during the pre-draft I couldn't decide between Galchenyuk and Forsberg. I thought that Galchenyuk would probably be the best fit (and player) for Montreal but I also wanted a good Swedish prospect. Finally I decided to cheer for Galchenyuk, because you should obviously always support BPA for your team. When the draft started I could never even dream of Collberg falling to #33.

It will be fun to follow Collberg in the SEL this year and I'll probably go and watch a few of his games thats close to where I live. If Nyström gets the chance in Modo it will be easier, because that's pretty close to me.

Thank you Timmins!

You can keep us updated on them.

Engqvist may be Swedish, but Collberg is a real prospect for the habs. One you can get excited for

http://thehockeywriters.com/sebastia...and-interview/

Admittedly higher than a lot of rankings (perhaps the highest) I had him ranked at 10th when it was all said & done in The NExt Ones FInal TOp 150 Rankings:
http://thehockeywriters.com/2012-nhl...inal-rankings/

If that's not enough to get Habs fans excited, I had him at 7th in the fantasy-based TOp 100 rankings, which is based on pure offensive upside:
http://thehockeywriters.com/2012-nhl...ased-rankings/

Brilliant pick by the Habs.
I've also heard Justin WIlliams (Kings) as a comparison (hopefully not a duplicate; didn't see it anywhere)
