    The J18 Elite East 2018-19 season is approaching. There are only a small number of world cup games, with diving soccer prima donnas, to endure before the teams buckle up for the first pre-season games/cups.

    I´ll try to analyse the upcoming J18 Elite East series, the teams, the new players and hopefully rank the teams with some accuracy before the season starts. A new season in J18 is always interesting, one of the more stimulating topics is that the change of seasons naturally gives a substantial turnover in the rosters as the older players (currently: born in 2000) have graduated and and a younger group (currently the 2002:s, and some 2003:s) are ready to fill their spots. I hope you could join me in a discussion around the upcoming J18 East season. Please remember to, just as I will do, use a positive stance (the guys are only 15-17 years old).

    Last season, a quick review:

    The J18 Elite East was quite interesting in 2017-18. The race for the five J18 Allsvenskan spots and the battle in “Fortsattningsserien” between SSK and AIK for the final playoff spot did almost every game interesting. In the race for J18 Allsvenskan Arlanda (LIU) and Nacka (LIU) did excellent and finished at place 4. and 5. sending the NIU teams, AIK and SSK, to “Fortsattningsserien”. Hopefully we could expect something similar exiting in the 2018-19 season, as it could and should be really tight between places 2-8, looking at my preliminary analysis of the rosters.

    In the bottom of the 2017-18 table, and thus relegated, we found Haninge and Nykoping Hockey. They are now replaced by Lidingo, after a strong season in Div 1 and Flemingsberg, after an impressive finish in the “Kvalserien”.

    J18 East 2018-19 Silly season (and intake)

    The rosters for next season are, more or less, complete. Only Huddinge and Taby are yet to reveal their full intake/promotions from u16 (u15) and I also assume that Vallentuna/Flemingsberg will get some late additions/confirmed losses to the rosters until October. Rest of the teams looks rather complete in terms of number and expected skills.

    Most of the new additions of 02:s have already been listed in the thread “New J18 players 2018-19 (born 2002)”, where DIF, AIK, Almtuna and SSK NIU intake are listed.

    I would like to highlight a few other interesting “transfers” and promotions.

    Promoted Flemingsberg further improves an already competitive forward side with C/W - Eskelinen (01) from Haninge (that lost J18 Elite status) and W - Diberius (02) from SSK U16.

    Silly season rank (so far): 6/10 (need D-men)

    The other newcomer Lidingo also add skills from Haninge’s 2017-18 team, when D-men Alex (01), Romani (01) and Hellberg (01) joins the islanders. Alex and Hellberg formed a very strong D-tandem for Haninge in the end of last season, and if they play together they could be Lidingos number 1 D-pair in 2018-19. Lidingo also add D – Karlsson and C/W – Melin from Nacka U16, where they both had important roles last season. Good signings from Lidingo.
    Silly season rank (so far): 8/10 (recruiters must be very pleased with outcome)

    SDE signs the talented -02 skaters D – Holland, C/W – Hallvik and C – Langdahl from Vallentuna. Hallvik was one of Vallentunas best players last season and he will be an excellent force for the SDE side. Beside these external reinforcements the promotions from SDE U16 (02) are good in all areas. Defence benefits from G - Edling, D - Korduner and D - Lauren. The offense are strengthen by Centers Toll and Pettersson togheter with wingers Munck and Ahlform (not yet listed, though?)
    Silly season rank (so far): 6/10 (SDE had very few holes to fill after U16 promotions)

    Vallentuna seems to sign several competent -02 D-men. Kok and Andersson from Taby U16, Henriksson and Djabarov from Almtuna U16 and Stahl from Arlanda U16. The goalie Rimsby (02) joins from AIK U16. They also add W – Dahlberg (02) from AIK U16 and C – Hassius (02) and W – Eriksson (03) from Roslagen Hockey. W Soderquist (02) joins from Arlanda U16. Another 4-5 players will be promoted from Vallentuna U16.
    Silly season rank (so far): 7/10 (good fit and quantity needed)

    Nacka
    promoted a number of players from their successful U16 team and in addition to that Nacka strengthens the defence with Goalie Malmqvist from AIK U16 and D-man Fast (02) from Trangsund. Up front, the topscorer from the last season in Stockholm U16 series, C/W – Rakell (02) joins from Huddinge. Finally, W - Granlund-Wennerberg (02) joins from SSK.
    Silly season rank (so far): 6/10 (had even higher expectation for Nacka)

    Arlanda did secure most of the players they wanted from Arlanda’s fairly strong U16 team. G – Wahlund Egnell, D – Stegfeldt (already with J18), D – Jansson are great additions to an already very strong D-core. The offense have some holes from graduated 00:s to fill. One is covered by speedy W – Engelke (01) from Taby. Joining from GIMO is the experienced C/W – Hagerstom (02), most likely ready for a big role on the team. In addition to this W – Korduner (02) arrives from DIF U16. Promoted forwards from Arlanda U16 includes W – Smeds (02) and W – Eghdami (02). Promoted from Arlanda U15 are the excellent prospects W – Lindstedt (03), C – Aaw (03) and C/W – Valente (03).
    Silly season rank (so far): 7/10

    Huddinge had a fairly strong season last year and several of the key players from that team are 01:s (Eckhoff, Jansson, Alm, Hägg, Kiviharju, Johansson, Thulin, Appelberg, Ruth and more). A strong core like that gives quite few urgent needs for the 2018-19 season. So far only one addition has been communicated – W – Hedelius (01) from Haninge, but we are still waiting for Huddinge to release their NIU intake. Huddinge U16 were not that great last season and I guess promotion from that team will be limited to 3-4 players. That could have been more if Huddinge could have convinced Rakell and Lithen to stay, they are now leaving for Nacka and Leksand respectively. Most likely D men Karlsson (02) and Olsson (02) and C/W Nuth (02) and perhaps also Wahlman (02) will be promoted from Huddinge U16. I also expect the Huddinge 03 players D – Lindstrom (03) and C/W - Backman (03) and C/W - Soderstrom (03) to get a few chances in J18 in 2018-19.
    Silly season rank (so far): 3/10 (NIU intake not realesed)

    Taby has lost, more or less, the whole team from last season. The 00 core graduates, the only 01, Engelke, leaving for Arlanda and all their high end 02:s leaving for NIU´s at various locations (unfortunately for J18 Elit East - they all left Stockholm). But, the good thing is – Taby could fill up the team with players from one of the best 03 teams in Sweden and they seem to promote some 4-5 competent 02-players from the Taby U16. D – Myrenberg (03), C – Jellvik (03) and W - Limpar Lantz (03) played in J18 Elit already last season and they are expected to lead Taby in 2018-19. Most likely Taby also would present one or two high-end imports to spice up the team further.
    Silly season rank (so far): 4/10 (Imports to be revealed)

    For the NIU team I would grade their intakes (so far) as:
    DIF: 8/10 (strong intake from DIF U16 and in addition to that the most physical (arguably) 02 D-man in Sthlm - Friberg)
    AIK 7/10 (might have hoped for more, especially losing home grown Barklund hurts)
    SSK 8/10 (very strong intake from SSK U16 + two external -02 D-men cherry picked with skill. D further strengthen as experienced D - Frantz (01) joins from Nacka J18 )
    Almtuna 6/10 (perhaps they could have done more)

    Very interesting to read all of this, thank you for putting so much effort in and taking the time to share it. For those of us who only know the top names this will be very interesting to follow. Will read through it all later and give some thoughts.

    Did you miss Kasper Lindström on your list for interesting 2003 players? Djurgården said to like him as the best D.

    Good question, I had to check my rankings. Kasper Lindstrom is ranked 31, but that´s only because the ranking also takes into consideration how the 03:s will do (and if they get game time) in J18 Elite East 2018-19. I would rank him higher if the list only should reflect talent alone for Stockholm U16 players. But such a ranking would also include a number of players in teams not represented in J18 Elite (and also some 03:s further down the depth chart in the major clubs - without any chance to skate in J18 Elite). Kasper is a great skater and Im quite sure you will find him among the players with most TOI in STS in the TVP 2018. However, he might need some additional size before he can challenge the rough and experienced 01:s for the D-spots in a Huddinge J18 that need every point to qualify for J18 Allsvenskan.

    Ok, good info, Mr Morrison. I thought that would be the case, but not already in 2018-19. Well, I understand both parties, but part of me would like the J18 Elite East to be as tight as possible and Jellvik’s "value over replacement player" is substantially higher in Taby than in DIF

    Thank you nynasstollen

    A very good review of the teams in J18 east.
    Your ranking "regarding" the players (01, 02, 03) is very good. I think you
    got the most interesting players that exist in the east region.
    I saw a lot of U16, U15 and J18 matches this year in east region.

    J18 East 2018-19 Silly season (and intake)...cont

    Huddinge J18 presented several new players last week

    As expected the d-core get additions from Huddinge U16 (2017-18) when Karlsson (02), Olsson (02) and Lautin (02) are promoted. I had expected at least one external signing but this might indicate that Huddinge make room for Lindstrom (03) and/or other promising 03:s at D.

    Up front Huddinge signs the huge journeyman Wikstrom Cronwall (-01) who returns to Region East and southern Stockholm after a season with Bjorkloven.
    Huddinge also signs some interesting 02 talents that will strengthen the forward side. From Haninge joins, the already J18 Elite experienced, Unger (02). Huddinge also was able to convince the dynamic Molin-Bjork (02) to stay in the Stockholm region instead of moving to Uppsala. Another interesting new forward is the Norwegian Oby-Olsen (02). Both Molin Bjork and Unger are expected to have strong impact on the offense this season. I haven’t seen Oby-Olsen play but being a Norway U16 International is a sign of quality. Promoted from the Huddinge U16 team are Nuth (02) and Gustafsson (02).

    Silly season rank (so far): 7/10 (was expecting more on D)

    Im glad that you find it interesting!

    Please bear in mind that the ”silly season scale” is relative and includes my subjective view on the different teams recruiting prestige (based on status, consensus view of the team’s strength and geo location) and my subjective view on the teams specific needs depending on the remaining core from 2017-18. Basically, is just a numeric way of saying if the teams have over- or underperformed in recruiting.

    If I use Lidingo as example, I think they have done a great job in finding better players than I expected considering their recruiting prestige and I also find their additions being a good fit to their needs. Subsequently Lidingo scores quite high (8 of 10) - I think they have overperformed! But this do not mean that their additions are better in a nominal ranking of the players ability than for example the AIK additions.

    A ranking of recruiting prestige in 2018-19, and thus my expectations of the teams recruiting, would look like this;

    Very High expectations (high national level)
    DIF

    High expectations

    AIK
    Almtuna
    SSK
    Huddinge

    Medium expectations

    Nacka
    SDE

    Low to very low expectations (very low national level)

    Täby
    Arlanda
    Lidingo
    Flemingsberg
    Vallentuna

    Regarding your summary of the current rankng I still have an update on Taby left to do. They have presented some new players but they´re not done yet.

    Very comprehensive and thorough. If you'd rank the teams based on your expectations on their performance though the season, how would that look? Which teams will advance to Allsvenskan and which are in risk of relegation?

    I'll give my ranking of the J18 Elite East later on. The rosters are not done and we have all the pre season games ahead of us. Pre season games starts next weekend for many teams and these games would be interesting to follow before I try a final ranking.

    Hopefully we could get this thread going soon and by that get more input and personal views from other people around the stockholm leagues both on how the J18 Elite East will evolve and, also, on game by game basis. In the short term it would be great if we could exchange thoughts, provide information (lines, d-tandems, PP, tactics, staring goalies e tc), analysis and personal views from the pre season games.

    J18 Elite East - Transfer update (since June)

    Major impact skaters:

    Johansson Loke (-01) Huddinge -> SSK
    Callin, Oliver (01) Tumba -> Flemingsberg
    Von Walden, Dennis (01) Arlanda -> Bålsta Sr.
    Jellvik, Oskar (03) Taby -> DIF

    Comments: The above skaters will really change the dynamics with their arrival/departure. Huddinge, Taby and Arlanda being heavily weakened. Flemingsberg must be happy finding a no 1 D and SSK for finding a high end playmaker.

    Question marks:
    Paricka, Eric (01) Slovakia -> Nacka
    Boyarin, Alexander (01) Russia -> SDE
    Jaracs, Roland (01) Hungary -> SDE
    Comments: Havent seen the above skaters play. Import players could be nice additions, but it’s always a risk/reward type of commitment.

    Other skaters:

    Wallberg, Erik (02) Vita Hasten -> Huddinge
    Granholm, Isac (02) Nacka -> Flemingsberg
    Sundgren, Einar (02) Huddinge -> Flemingsberg
    Bagge, Sebastian (02) Haninge -> Nacka
    Prskalo, Lucas (02) Arlanda U16 (17/18) -> Arlanda J18
    Lindstrom, Kasper (03) Huddinge -> DIF

    Comments: Good work by Nacka to sign highly mobile and skilled winger Bagge and Arlanda to convince the powerful Prskalo to stay. DIF secure a future pillar for the J-team when signing -03 Kaspar Lindstrom already to 2018-19. Sundgren should challenge for a top 6 role in Flemingsbergs defence.

    No, your´re right. Instead they signed Pshenichnikow (02) from Taby J18 and will add a few foreign players.
