I think you are right, although I don't think the "guys" in Frölunda really expected Niemi to take on that role, since he is a more defensive minded player.
Ackeström is probably their best offensive defenseman and still I would not really call him elite.
Their talent level at D is pretty poor actually. I don't see Leetma or Jakobsen becoming regulars in the SEL in the future. Alexander Täng and Richard Demén-Willaume in the junior league have both some offensive instincts and I hope they will be ready for some SEL action next season.

I see Niemi as an enigma, doesn't create enough offense to be called an offensive d-man, yet doesn't play well enough in the defensive zone to be called a defensive d-man. I prefer to call him a decent two-way guy.

that would seem like a very good way to describe him to me, judging from how i saw him play when he was on Cincinnati and Anaheim (briefly). not great offensively, not great defensively, but not bad either way. however, i would think he would produce a bit more in Elitserien, as far as points go... especially on such a talented team in need of backline support. he played pretty good offensively in the first dozen games or so, anyway. maybe he has been tentative since returning from injury? i don't know, i just say that because i look at the stats and whatnot often. i'm sure you folks actually in Sweden would have a better idea. perhaps this should be renamed the 'Antti-Jussi Niemi Debate thread'.

No goals for Steen today again.
I'm too lazy to look it up right now (but will do so soon)
.. but his recored the last 20 games or so is terrible.
Something like 1 goal and 1 assist I believe.
It's still good to know that he has been playing pretty well
but a prospect of his calibre must produce some points as well.

Thats at least what it is the last 15 games. I know at the 25 game mark he was 7-11-18. He had such a quick start, I was expecting him to be in North America by next year. Does it look like he will be staying over seas one more year? Too early to tell?

since November 19, Steen has scored 1 goal and 1 assists (in 22 games)
I think he'll stay for yet a year in the SEL. He has said that he wants to play with the national team and before he moves over.. so I'm pretty sure he'll stick for yet a season with Frölunda.

Tonight's game:
No point for Steen although he scored a goal that unfortunately was disallowed.

From now on I will only post updates here when he actually scores a points or in some other way stands out. I'm starting to get frustrated only reporting "No points for steen"

Won't he play in the World Cup?

Being before the 2004/05 season?

That's the national team.

Yes, but I'm pretty sure he means that he wants to play with the national team because he is good enough, not because of this U22 rule.
He wants to have a strong season in the SEL, probably averaging a point per game and play in the World Championships before moving over the pond.
That is the "road" most Swedish NHLers have taken.

Im really disappointed in his last 22 games... Im allthough still positive he has been one of the best players on the team anyway.
But its just SO TYPICAL. I really thought he´d get over 30 points easily this season, cause the kid got some enormous potential.
