Eriksson will be better this season, he will be the starter for Skelleftea and will have some good advice by Hadelov. Let's hope he will come in NA in 2011, at least in AHL.
As long as Idiot Stick in Adirondack is gone by the time Eriksson comes over, I have no trouble with that. I'm really concerned about how he is going to use Bobrovsky and it could get ugly in Adirondack.
Skaters are different in that you can reasonably guess how well they would do in the NHL.
Goalie prospects are total crapshoots.
What bothers me is that the Flyers are making plans that EXPECT one of these 2 to turn into NHL average goalies.
Even Bobrovsky was honest about it. He said he wanted to come to NA to learn the NA style of the game, in Russia there is not a lot of traffic in front of the net, more wide open hockey, this will be different to adjust to. After a year in the AHL system it will be easier to see where he stands.
As for Eriksson he has not even played a minute in the SEL, lets take a step back on this kid.
