Who is the best offensively, defensively, and two-way?
Best in the future?
Larsson is the best all around IMO, Runblad the best offensively, Ekman Larsson maybe D is his thing ? idk haven't seen him play in a while.
Not saying OEL sucks in any way tho.
I question Larsson's offense. 9 points last season doesn't do much to make me think he is anything close to Rundblad and OEL offensively.
Look at Rundblad's PP time on Skelleftea last year and then look at Larsson's PP time on Skelleftea last year. Had Rundblad played Larsson's minutes last year his numbers would have been lowered quite a bit as well. Rundblad is also a more offensively gifted player and two years older...
Larsson's not going to be a gamebreaking offense type...but I think he'll play on a #1 unit and be capable of 50 points because he can move the puck and get pucks on net at a high enough caliber.
Didnt we do this exact thread not 2 days ago?
Ekman-Larsson is quite polished right now, I'd take Rundblad in the future, but it depends if Karlsson taints him with his free-spirited, all-offense ways. If MacLean can reign in Karlsson and instill a two-way system we're good.
Pretty sure that one had Erixon instead of OEL.
In any case:
Larrson- All Round
IMO. All excellent prospects, though.
The SEL is quite different from other leagues for prospect point production. You should know this from MPS
Since these are defensemen and MPS is a forward, EK would probably fit your comparison better, but I see what you mean.
Larsson had 17 points as a 16 year old. You just don't lose offensive ability from 16 to 17 years old. He played a defensive role and was limited in PP ice time.
Separate names with a comma.
