    People on these board were down on all swedes picked in the 1st round.

    Broberg at 8 = oiler fans Disappointed
    Soderstrom at 11 = fans were who?
    Björnfot at 22 = kings fans confused
    Holmström at 23 = Islanders fans at rage

    I dont understand why.

    People are also calling Söderström a defensive shutdown defenseman which is far from the truth.

    Holmström can't stay healthy. All the talent in the world doesnt matter if you live in the trainers room.

    One of the best abilities is availability.

    He is a great skater, has a good shot, is skilled with good hands, sees the ice well and works hard. He was probably the most hyped Swedish prospect heading into this year ahead of Söderström, Broberg and Björnfot but injuries destroyed his draft stock, he was underwhelming in the beginning of the year just after the injuries but really got going towards the end and was one of the most important contributors to the U18 gold medal.

    A lot of controversy surrounding this pick. Before injuries Holmstrom was a top 15 pick. Supposively Lou preferred Holmstrom over Hughes. Would have taken Simon first OA. Shades of Brian Burke.

    Keep in mind you're talking to the fan base that let de Haan go because they swore he would never play again.

    Come on man. If you're going to come in here and drop a bomb like this unsubstantiated, you're just trolling. Your shenanigans on HF Isles is tiring.

    There are too many weekend QB scouts around here that base everything off of statistics and Bob McKenzie rankings. By all accounts this seems like a kid that was picked around the right time because of injury, but has maybe more potential upside than some of the other consensus picks.

    Maybe you should lighten up and take a joke. I have plenty of problems with the posts you make on the Isles boards. And what's really tiring to me is when people insult JT and Snow constantly. See so you aren't the only person who deals with other posters shenanigans

    I am still skeptical of the pick but you make a good point, the last guy we took who fell due to injury won the Calder. When Snow stuck to the board and picked the consensus guys we wound up with Ryan Strome and Mike Dal Colle.

    An intriguing pick. If it weren’t for the injuries, 23OA would be justified.

    Is his style similar to Filip Forsberg, perhaps w less dangling ability?Reminds me based on the scouting reports I read.

    Dehaan was injured for YEARS and look how he turned out. This guy just had a short bit of bad luck...at least they weren't all the same injury like shoulder or groin.

    There is none because that’s flat out ridiculous.

    Think I agree with this, even though I'm still pretty salty about our center depth. I know you're not supposed to draft for need but boy we have an issue there.

    Not top15 but here Holmstrom was ranked 18 in FC early fall ranking (select fall)
    https://futureconsiderations.ca/top-rankings-2019/

    You got a very solid player, I had him 23rd also, terrific skating ability, with hands and IQ that can match his speed. I was hoping he would fall to MTL 2nd rounder because of the injuries.
