08:36 AM ET 09.24 | The next great Swedish import may just be selected this coming June, when Newark hosts the 2013 NHL draft. Goran Stubb, European Director of NHL Central Scouting, thinks so. Based on his early assessment of Swedish center Elias Lindholm, it's easy to see why Stubb considers the 17-year-old one of the top draft-eligible prospects from Europe. Lindholm, a 5-foot-11 3/4, 181-pound righty-shooting center, projects to be a future top-six NHL forward with star potential. ... "He's a complete package," Stubb told NHL.com. "He could very well be the next Peter Forsberg. He's an excellent skater and great competitor who gives it 110 percent on every shift."

Me thinks this guy is actually Peter Forsberg in disguise trying to make another NHL come back.

Agreed. You gotta give 125%............at minimum............in order to get 102% of your pay for at least 98% of the time. Sounds like Yogi Berra and he couldn't even skate. (I don't think).

Will the Red Wings Swedish pipeline pick up this kid? I'm sure they will give it 107% of their attention ;)

He's currently ranked 3rd for the 2013 draft class according to Hockey Prospectus.

Maybe its like alcohol, if so I agree that Forsberg only gave about 55% towards the end...
