[SWE] Swedish Youngsters

Who will have the better NHL career, Fransson or Kronwall, and is future No.1 D-man warrented for Fransson? And what do people think about Naslund? Is he an inconsistant Jason Arnott type?

Kronwall is the safer bet obviously, since he is already there.. almost being a NHL-regular. Fransson's upside is perhaps slithly higher (#1 defenseman if everything goes perfect) although it is perhaps more likely that he'll become an offensive minded #2, #3 defenseman.

As for Näslund he is size wise similar to Arnott. The latter is however more physical and defensively skilled and obviously more talented overall.

I've seen nothing of Fransson, so I can't comment about him.
But I was startled by Kronwall's game. He was much more polished than I expected.
Very good skater. Great passer. Good shot. Willing to play physical. And not as small as I expected.
Without getting too crazy, I see him as a potential 2-3 defenseman who can play special teams.
Hopefully he plays with Lidstrom a little bit this year, and learns from the master.

We told you so.
