Just wanted the Swedish Fans thoughts on goaltender Bjurling who Edmonton dratfed in the 9th round. Is he a decent goalie and does he have a chance to make the national team as a back-up or 3rd stringer. What are his NHL chances.
Bjurling had a great season last year until the playoffs started. Then he really choked. He actually allowed 15 goals in two games!!!!
IMO he was #4 of the Swedish goalies last year and probably will be #5 this year when Salo has returned. Lundqvist, Liv and Henriksson are all better than Bjurling. I was actually surprised that Bjurling and not Henriksson was drafted.
Bjurling is a promising player but I can't see him becoming a NHL goalie..
