Sounds like another year in Sweden and then the AHL. It's better to not rush skilled guys. 

Another season would do him good. Imports from Sweden tends to do better after getting a taste of the SHL which he hopefully will have next year. 

 

Don't want another Rodin situation on our hand. :(

Dahlen would go in first round pick if drafted this year. 

Totally agree. He didn't last very long in the second round. Honestly, I would've taken him with a late 1st had we had one.

His father played 1000 nhl games 

 

He was in on 13 strait goals this year and almost a point a game in the swedish league (one league lower then the elite league)  

 

Hes from the same hometown as edler 

 

He is reported to have a great character.

 

Almost a point a game at the wjc (5 goals one assist)  

 

He s only 19

 

Bad side.....hes small. 511 175 

 

 

 

 

 

Good trade at this point.

Ya cause Centre's have no idea how to play the wing.

Yes because playing middle is = to experience covering point and board play. 

 

Thanks for your useless comment.

Fillip Forsberg went to the AHL in his draft +2 after putting similar numbers to Dahlen. Although Forsberg had more size to make that transition easier. I guess the question is whether transitioning to the AHL is easier now for smaller guys compared to when Rodin tried to enter.

 

Sidenote: if we was 2 weeks younger he would be eligible for the World Juniors again.

Wow his stock must've really inflated up. I must confess I have only seen streamed games of Dahlen plus highlights last year. He must've improved a lot huh? I remember being most concerned about whether his elusivity and core strength will translate. I'm guessing that has improved? Can you tell me more about it?

So we got a second round prospect in a better year for Burrows... this is a huge win for us!

 

When will he transition to North America?

Considering how deep last years draft was, this is pretty awesome.

 

Sounds like he could project out as a future #1 or #2 center in the league.

 

Looking forward to seeing him in camp next year!

All the best to Burr, without him waiving this never happens.

 

Welcome aboard Jonathan!

Whoa Napoleon, relax. 

 

Every centre, especially the ones who are early in their developmental stage can easily convert to the wing. We aren't talking about a Goalie switching to LW here.
