    I think he is definitely showing flashes of good this year but he seemed to get super overhyped by the media do to the play in camp.

    He isn't NHL ready, right now and that's fine. He has plenty to work on but the flashes of good are good to see.

    Dissapointing his tournament was so rough with injury etc. That last sequence to lose the tournament will probably live in his head for a long time.

    I for one don't think that Czechia is such a weak opponent. If compared to a team like Canada, yes, but not compared to Sweden. Anyone watching that game know it was very close and hard fought until mid-second period.

    That was more or less the only time he was more or less injury free, although since he was shut down already mid-second period he probably was already suffering from something. That was a very good game from him. I also think that Finland is a stronger team than Sweden right now on junior level, Sweden living a bit on reputation, but player for player that Finnish team can match Sweden's lineup. In the game yesterday he was not bad at all, good on D an as active as he could on offense despite obviously being hampered by injury.

    It's really impossible to measure the rest of his performance. Playing injured on one of the weakest sides Sweden has sent to the U20 for years. I mean look no further than Soderstrom, who I think is a good player but suffered to the general lack of talent up front. C depth was horrible, Raymond/Holtz were ok, but really nothing special at all. Maybe Soderblom was the only one who had me raising an eyebrow. Alnefeld being one of the best players despite the disasterous performance vs US says a lot.

    Ferraro on the Ray & Dregs podcast says Broberg was dealing with a severe Charlie horse and a if-not-separated-close-to-it shoulder injury.

    Wow, thanks for this. Certainly explains a lot of what we saw in terms of limitations in his play.

    I wondered if it was a bad charlie horse/contusion because I couldn't think of other injuries that would restrict his movement that the doctors would also still let him play through.

    The shoulder...that's a concern. Hopefully it's a short term thing and we never hear of any Broberg shoulder injuries again....ever!

    He's out two weeks according to hockeysverige. Team doctor calling it a "soft tissue" issue for which he needs to rehab for a short period. So I am guessing they are referring to the charlie horse.

    Kid is a gamer. Hopefully he is able to use the disappointment of the WJC's as added motivation to finish his season strong.

    According to Holland, Broberg played in the WJC with a partially separated shoulder and a slight tear above his knee. Explains his so-so play.

    Kid is a battler for sure.

    There was definitely some overreactions here. Broberg was obviously playing injured, but it didn’t stop the usual suspects from telling us all how bad the pick was. It was laughable then and laughable now.

    Just like always, the usual suspects fail and then don't ever post again

    All it is, is just really unfortunate that the kid wasn't able to show his wares on the big stage.

    Knee injury and a shoulder injury. Jesus. I'd argue he shouldn't have been playing with one of those, let alone both.

    Literally every possible movement he'd make on the ice would have hurt, been slower, and have less power. Then you add in risk of aggravation from playing more... Idk, I don't think him playing the WJC was the right call. From a development standpoint or a winning Sweden a medal stand point.

    I would have preferred he didn’t play but it was clear he really wanted to participate.

    Yes, all 19 yearolds are world renowned for their wisdom and risk management skills.

    Choices like playing this tournament this banged up is how you retire at 27 when you should be at the prime of your career.

    Its not even like its a ticky tacky injury... these are both the kind of injuries that nag guys for their entire career. Where the hell are the adults in the room? for Sweden and Edmonton?!

    Not sure if Edmonton doctors were allowed to assess him. Sweden’s doctors? Who knows. Maybe they felt if it wouldn’t be further aggravated he could still play.

    I’m sure it wasn’t Broberg who made the final decision.

    My guess is right behind the world class medical teams that oversee these millionaire athletes.

    Considering his injuries it’s amazing that he was still playing as well as he did in the last game.
    Hopefully he’s taking a break until he’s fully healed up now.

    The same medical teams that McDavid ignored completely to make a miraculous comeback last year? Idk. I'm not a doctor, but something doesn't pass the sniff test.

    Sucks for the kid. That tournament must have been torture. Really hope he gets back to 100% soon or I'll be cursing team Sweden and the coaches for a long time.
