What are your thoughts on Vikstrand during the final stretch/2nd half? And in turn overall play. Haven't seen him much in that span.

Is he still draft eligible or would he be a free agent? His production should make him attractive to NHL teams despite his size.

I believe this draft is his last, if not drafted he's an UFA.

Any opinions on Pontus Aberg after his season in the SEL? You guys think he projects as a top 6 wing?

What do you think of Daniel Gunnarsson? Any NHL potential?

I don't watch SHL, so I can't tell, but it would be pretty cool to one day see him play together with Gustafsson for the Wild. I'd guess that they've been friends since they started playing hockey.

Two guys showing a lot of promise but hasn't been able to really take the step towards consistently being top guys on their teams yet. They're still young, though, of course. Sounds like Gunnarsson is getting a fresh start somewhere else in Sweden next year, so might be good. Don't know what NSH's plans are with regard to Åberg, but both are longshots to be NHLers at this point, I'd say.

Åberg's got his shot but that's the only thing that's top quality, so would have to be a much better player in SHL/AHL over the coming years to have a shot. Gunnarsson's involved offensively and if he can round out his game on D and be a bit more effective in some areas, maybe.. But don't count on it.

How has Djoos looked to those who have watched him. He has kinda fell under the radar in terms of D prospects for Washington and his stats look good for a 19 year old.

I like him a lot. He should be too weak to play in the SHL but his smarts makes up for it. Not sure if his style will translate well to the NA game but he should at least become a really good player in Europe.

Sounds like Anton Forsberg is coming over to finish his year out playing in NA. Not sure he'll play any games in Springfield but training over here may help his adjustment for next year. Maybe he plays a few games with Evansville for experience. I'm excited to see him in the AHL next year.

Also, sounds like Daniel Zaar is playing very well in the playoffs. Another intriguing prospect for Columbus.

Zaar and his line(Everberg, Johansson) is single-handedly keeping them in contention. They were good during the season but are dominating right now. Don't think they're deep enough in the end to make it to the SHL, but Zaar is ready for the next level(SHL or AHL) for sure.

Is there any news on Karlsson? I would like him coming to NA, but not sure if he will.

You will have to be more specific

Guessing you mean ANA's Karlsson though, and not yet. Can be eliminated tonight.

Any idea if Victor Svedberg has NHL potential? He came over to play for Rockford in the AHL this year, but has not played every game. How has he looked?

Tell me about Max Görtz. He has now 2+2 in 5 playoff games for Frolunda, but he has not scored much in regular season. Nashville's 6th round pick from 2012.

Is he getting lucky or does he play wery well? Better than Wennberg besides the points? How about his skating, is it NHL level? How about his 2-way game?

William Karlsson now waiting on his visa to come to NA

He'll likely be with Norfolk.

Sorry, my bad. Although are there much other prospects with that name?

But yes, i meant William and seems like he`s soon in NA. Very exciting, although i don`t expect that much from him this season i`m more looking forward to next season when he`ll be able to play a full season in NA.

From what I hear, Görtz needs to work on consistency. I've only seen a couple of his playoff games this season but I thought he played well, although I thought Wennberg was better.

Anton Forsberg with 25 saves on 26 shots in his first game in AHL. Announced as the second star of the game!

Central Scouting final rankings have Jonas Johansson and Linus Soderstrom ranked as #2 and#3 respectively on their euro goalie list (#1 euro goalie is Vile Husso from Finland)...bit my question for Swedish posters to this board who may have watched both Ansson and Soderstrom is which of the 2 would you draft ahead of the other? Does Central Scouting have it right? What style differences if any are there between them? What are their best abilities and what fo they need to work on?
