    It's possible he was getting more worn down as the tournament went on. I do not know the ice time stats but he seemed to play a lot of important minutes and was relied on more heavily when Soderstrom went down.

    I just watched the final Hlinka tournamemt(I know welcome to 3 weeks ago).

    He is definately a natural. He could already play in the pro with his size/skating. I think he needs to make quicker decision sometimes but for a guy his age his potential is through the roof. He reminds me McDonagh, such a physical beast

    This kid has incredible acceleration and top end speed. Makes good reads as well in the defensive and neutral zones. I'm not sure his brain and hands can keep up with how fast he skates though. He seems to have good hands during early acceleration but then often bobbles the puck or just throws it in front of himself and trys to out skate everyone to it when at top speed.
    At this point I have him just below my first tier of defenders somewhere in the 11-20 range. He could very well ride his Hlinka to a high draft position but he's going to have to preform well in Sweden as well.

    Your last point is my only problem with him. Appears to be a very good player, but such a small sample size that everyone is looking at here. Let's wait for the season to start before we call him the best defender in the draft.

    Button is notorious for this. He ranks international competition above all else. People tend to take his word as gospel so then guys get overrated all year. I put a lot more stock into more than 6 games. If you can be a major contributor on your team over 50+ that seems much more important then getting hot for a 5 game tournament, even if it is best on best. It should be taken into consideration for sure. On top of playoffs but not the be all end all of someones rankings.

    Philip Broberg, Kaapo Kakko. Great names, and also potentially great players.

    Not to sound cliche...but he has is that rare D that has the "extra gear". You'll see him carrying the puck and driving the opposing defensemans outside shoulder and the opponent looks to be in good position and thinks he has him until Broberg shifts into overdrive Gets behind the D with a lane to the goal

    Interesting that Boqvist reported to London. Would love to see Broberg report to Hamilton but maybe he will wait until drafted in the nhl.

    Gunna compete with Byram for top dman in the draft. He’s very very smooth.

    Along with Honka and York. I think there is a top 4 forming. We'll see who gains separation.

    I love defensemen with high mobility, I think that's a tool that translates incredibly well to the NHL and can cover some flaws in a defenseman's game. But I agree, the sample size is low right now. The tools won't change, so I'm still ranking him high now, but consistency is the holy grail of a top 4 NHL D so I'll need to see that for a season before we can call him the top D in the class.

    The assist came after a breakaway Broberg gave up when he "pinched" from the center of his blue line to keep the puck in but whiffed.

    Don't love the hockey sense, can rush the puck at a high and has some skill but that's kind of his whole game right now. Impressive for his age that he can do this but you wonder how much he can improve.
