01.Robert
Nilsson
F
NY Islanders
The
most promising Swedish prospect right now. Nilsson has all the talent in
the world but must improve his skating and defensive skills. A potential
star.
02.Alexander
Steen
F
Toronto
Steen
is the safest prospect in Sweden. He has no major weaknesses and does everything
well. Steen has the tools to follow his father’s footsteps and become a legend
in the NHL.
03.Niklas
Kronwall
D
Detroit
A
smallish but yet very powerful defenseman. With an excellent physical game
and a strong two-way game Kronwall could become a quality player in the
NHL.
04.Henrik
Lundqvist
G
NY Rangers
Was
outstanding last season and is a regular with the Swedish national team.
The best goalkeeper in the Swedish Elite League.
05.Mikael
Tellqvist
G
Toronto
Has
come off a strong season in the AHL and was brilliant in the World Championships
last April when he stole the starting job from Tommy Salo.
06.Jonas
Johansson
F
Colorado
A
very good skater and playmaker. Johansson is hoping to have a strong season
in the WHL before seriously challenging for a roster spot with Colorado
Avalanche.
07.Fredrik
Sjöström
F
Phoenix
Great
attitude and a strong two-way game. Sjöström is also a strong
skater and a quite capable scorer. A future NHLer for sure.
08.Lars
Jonsson
D
Boston
Jonsson
has developed tremendously the last six months and is now the best young defenseman
in the Swedish Elite League. Very good offensive skills, a good shot and
fine skating.
09.Stefan
Liv
G
Detroit
Has
come off a disapointing season but is now turning it around. Liv is a very
spectacular goalie and is currently working hard at standing up more instead
of going down all of the time.
10.Loui
Eriksson
F
Dallas
A
great pick by the Dallas Stars in the second round of the 2003 draft. Eriksson
has the attitude, skating and hockey sense required to become successful
in the NHL.
