The 2010 draft

It struck me today that despite all the good draft classes lately and young stars that we have, the 2010 draft is yet to yield a single legit NHL player. I say yet because some of them are still as young as 21, but it's been 3½ years since that draft which is a significant amount of time.

In order of the draft:
2/35: Rensfeldt - Not signed.
2/41: Nemeth - AHL.
2/44: Wännström - AHL/ECHL.
2/51: Järnkrok - AHL.
2/56: Larsson - NHL games, not a regular.
2/57: Lindberg - AHL.
3/90: Nordström - NHL games, not a regular.
4/106: Sörensen - Not signed.
4/116: Granberg - AHL.
5/126: Cehlin - AHL.
5/128: Pettersson Wentzel - Not signed.
5/131: Klingberg - Yet to go overseas.
5/132: Heed - Yet to go overseas.
5/146: Brodin - Not signed.
6/157: Fast - NHL games, not a regular.
6/159: Gustafsson - AHL.
6/161: Dahlström - Not signed.
6/169: Owuya - Not signed.
7/206: Blidstrand - Not signed.
7/207: Westin - Not signed.

2 goaltenders, 18 skaters, 35 NHL GP, 1G, 2A.

What do you see coming out of this draft class?

Weak draft overall, have no idea how Nemeth is doing but Larsson, Lindberg, Nordström, Klingberg, and Fasth should still have a shot at a career in the NHL.

Some quality SHL players there. Wouldn't be surprised if none of those players become NHL regulars. The guy with the best shot at making it is probably Granberg.

Knew it was a bad draft from a Swedish standpoint, but those stats are quite shocking really.

Always thought Järnkrok would overcome his size issues because of his other talents. What's the view on him among Detroit fans these days? His AHL stats look pretty underwhelming.

Deep team where the scoring is spread. I guess he gets a pass for the first half of the season, but time to step up the production after X-mas. No lack of opportunity.

Interesting, hope he manages to step up. Suppose it's a good thing he's at Detroit since he wouldn't be in the lineup before his 24th birthday no matter the production

No doubt he'll get chances, but might have to wait. Good thing he has Swedish friends there.. and more are coming.

While this isn't looking like a strong one, should also be considered that prospects we are excited about now from 2011, 2012 and 2013 will soon start to fall off and not many will be NHL regulars 5 or 6 years into their careers.

This draft lacked top-quality for sure, don't think many Swedes pushed for anyone but Järnkrok in the top round.

In a couple of years I'd say there are something like 4 NHLers from this group, and about the same from another non-elite draft like 2012.

Pretty interesting that it was the 2010 draftees, or the 1992-born guys, who broke the WJC drought.
