Agreed, but sometimes that’s how steals are also formulated, when teams overlook a certain issue.
Oskar Bäck almost 20 spots ahead of David Gustafsson seems very strange to me, care to elaborate?
I like that Olofsson is not too far ahead of Hållander, it is something I agree with. Many lists seem to have Hållander quite far behind Olofsson.
I’m not a super big Olofsson fan, and I don’t think he’ll have the impact that others do. Hallander has more potential in my opinion, so he’s pretty close.
I just see so much more potential in Back than I do in Gustafsson, who looks more like more finished product from my viewings. Gustafsson dropped quite a bit in there’s rankings as I didn’t really watch him much this month compared to others.
I could be sleeping on Gustafsson, looking back at his ranking. I’ll watch a few more games this month and try to represent him a bit better next time.
I have one question about all the rankings--what about Linus Karlsson. He finished second to Berggren in the SuperElit scoring race--actually had a higher ppg than Bokk or Albin Eriksson who is seen as a 2nd/3rd. Karlsson also played 11 games in SHL and was more than a point-per-game scorer in lower level adult league last season. Yet I have not seen his name on any lists.
I understand that scoring is not the most important measure, but it usually implies at least a level of competency. Any comments on Linus Karlsson?
He does have very good stats, I’m impressed. Have not watched any of him play at all. He plays on one of the worst teams in the league / least noticible teams, so I haven’t watched any games. I will For next month and include him, thanks!
Nils Lundqvist should be way higher...
This is then best year for defensemen since 2008 - no question
Without a doubt. Maybe one of the best defensive crops ever.
If Dallas misses the playoffs or gets bounced quickly I'd love for one of Kotkaniemi, Bokk, or Veleno slide to us. Great list btw
The top-10 picks looks so good this year, will be interesting to see who falls out and who's picked ahead of the 10 you've listed.
There will be many great defensemen coming out of this draft.
Thanks for posting this. Great effort in posting the top 250 prospects, well done.
Well done! Always look forward to your rankings however was very surprised by how high/low you had some players.
Do my eyes deceive me or is Axel Andersson not ranked here?
What do you mean with that ?
If he was born september 2000, I could understand.
Born December 23rd so age wise a very small gap between him and a lot of the 2000s. Pretty minor factor in hindsight
Curse these eyes!
Have only seen one game, but liked what I saw a lot. Same with Nils Lundqvist. Both will get lots more views and probably rise up next month.
Filip Kral is D
Get excited for Lundkvist.
I like the fact that Cedric Desruisseaux is on this list the kid can really score
I really like Dobson at 5. I would be happy if the Habs pick him up there. It's hard to evaluate Boqvist because of his playing team this year... but if I remove him from the equation I prefer Dobson to Hughes and Bouchard quite easily. He's still very young and has everything to look for in a first pairing D-man
Thanks, it was typed on a phone so there’s bound to be autocorrections and thumb slips
Thanks! I really liked what I saw of him. Maybe doesn’t have the biggest potential but he’s a real scorer.
if he's not drafted a team will probably want to sign him when he gonna have 19-20 like Barre-boulet
