    Söderström has played top4 in shl for 20 games now. Brynas coach did not understand why he was left home.

    Söderström should have been on that team, no question. It doesn't work that way unfortunately.

    Age is a huge factor. Don't think Broberg would have stood out in a good way with more ice time but he was never given a chance to prove himself. Meanwhile, Filip Westerlund played big minutes all tournament and he's not even playing regular shifts in the SHL as a 19 year old.

    I do not agree, he was good when he got to play and you can see the tools. But he played to little.

    Söderström could have been in the team instead of Ginning, Lundqvist or Westerlund.

    Anttoni? Yeah, I'd say so. I see Broberg getting drafted early - mid 1st, while Honka should go late 1st.

    he seems to be hailed as the second best defenseman in this draft. Been reading a lot about him but have not seen him play before.
    Can anyone give me some feedback on him?
    He has great size and is a two way defender from what I have read.

    Future top pair guy?

    Or bust , his offensive upside is questionable, top 4 potential though.

    Great skater and not bad defensively. Rest of his game is the question. He can carry the puck, but doesn't have huge offensive skill. Hockey IQ and playmaking are not strengths. He does seem to have a good shot though.

    I don't think he'll be a top pairing defensemen, but I also am not a huge fan of his game.

    As it stands, Broberg is not a 1st rounder for me.

    Not from what I've seen. I'd put quite a few ahead of him.

    He's been struggling since coming back from the WJC.

    I agree with the sentiment, but on a lesser scale. To me Broberg should be a late first-round pick as he does have pretty good tools, but I could see him slipping further. Even though my team desperately needs LHD and Broberg's not a bad prospect, I'll be pissed, like I was pissed at the McCarron pick in 2013, if we draft him 15th or higher.

    I see a lot of David Rundblad in this kid.

    Rundblad couldn't skate or defend.

    Skating and defending are the two things that Broberg does best.

    I meant it more as a comparison to David Rundblad's status as a prospect to highlight the fact that Broberg is certainly far from a safe bet to be a good NHLer and has quite a bit of bust potential in him while also having really high potential if things go 100% right (and he stops making atrocious decisions with the puck and poor reads at both sides of the ice).

    Very curious to see where he gets drafted... still not quite sure what to make of him.

    He is indeed a head scratcher, could make you create to either pick him or pass on him pretty badly.
