Tom Nilsson (D)had a nice season with Mora IK. 4g 6a and 45pims in 44 games. Not bad considering he is playing in a mensleauge (Tier 2) and is a defensive d-man. And yeah he laid quite a few nice hits. Unfortunatly i cant find any videos of it.

Petter Granberg (D) also had a steady season playing 38 games for Skellefteå in the swedish eliteleauge. Scoring 1g and 3a with 10 pims. He also played 6 games in the junior league scoring 6 points in 5 games. He seemed to get better later in the season and got to play a long playoffs when his team made it to the finals. He played 19 games in the playoffs and scored 1g and 1 a with 12pims.

Daniel Brodin (LW/RW) had a rough year. Scoring only 2g and 5a with 28pims in 46 games. His team Djurgården (Sundins old team) had a disaster of a season eventually falling out of the eliteleauge and will play next season in the tier 2 leauge.

Daniel Brodin signed with finnish team "Ässet". So another player lost for Djurgården after being degraded.

mirtle: Leafs sign Swedish defenceman Petter Granberg to a three-year entry level contract. A fourth-rounder in 2010.

Im glad he signed. I like that kid. He reminds me alot about Gunnarsson but is ahead of him development wise. He is already strong enough to play against men. He is solid defensivly and makes a nice first pass. He wont score alot and he wont lay big hits but he will get the job done and eat minutes. A year or two in the AHL first ofcourse because i dont think he is ready for the NHL.

I've read that Granberg is a more physical player than Gunnarsson but probably not as skilled. I also hear that he's very physically mature. He's very strong and a hard hitter.

I thought Nilsson wasn't considered a defensive defenseman. It's tough to tell much of anything from the statistics of the young players in Swedish pro leagues.

Seeing how long it takes to be universally hated without saying even one offensive or mean thing.

I wonder if the Leafs let him know that there was no space for him, or if he came up with this all on his own? Too bad, as I hate to lose prospects either way.

Corey Pronman of hockeyprospectus.com ranks the Leafs top 10.  I'm not exactly blown away by Pronman as a scout/writer/ranker of prospects, and his writing is terrible, but it's worth posting one man's opinion.
