Forsberg, Collberg and Åberg vs. Landeskog, Zibanejad and Pääjärvi
Which group of forwards do you think will have a bigger impact on swedish hockey?
It feels like this years group is slightly more dynamic offensively, but I'm not completely sure, although I really do think that Collberg and Åberg are players that we've been lacking the last few years; goal scoring wingers.
Landeskog and Zibanejad will most lkely make a big impact. Atleast Landeskog. Zibanejad has the potential but im not sure. Pääjärvi is so overated its funny. He should be happy if he ever reach one 1ppg season. (But i hope i am wrong here)
Speedbullet Pääjärvi is more difficult to judge but he is for sure given a lot of chances and good icetime in Edmonton.
Yeah. I agree that Pääjärvi is quite overrated, even though I like him as a player, but considering he's in a team where he's given a lot of confidence and playtime with other young guns, I think it's unavoidable that he'll have a solid development. I'd consider Landeskog our biggest hope out of the lot so far, but it's difficult to say.
Åberg and Zibanejad, if they play together. Their chemistry is so ****ing awesome.
Yeah hopefully we will see that in wjc. I think Zibanejad would be better off playing lots and gaining confidence in SEL rather than playing for a losing Ottawa, where he will get a lot less icetime and where he frankly haven't played very well yet.
I'd give Magnus some time. He had a pretty good rookie season after all, especially down the stretch. I'm not so sure Landeskog will put up a whole lot more than those 34 points in his first year even if he's younger.
