Gripe 1: John Klingberg
Current Stat(s): Scoring (65), Defense(69), Passing (82), Puckhandling (88)
Desired Stat(s): Scoring (80), Defense(77), Passing (94), Puckhandling (94)

Reasoning: Klingberg is seen as a top7 defenseman by Yahoo, NHL, ESPN Dobbler and HockeysFuture, to name a few of the top raters. He is owned in 99% of CBS Sports leagues, only outdone by Erik Karlsson. 

 
The major reason for Klingberg being hailed as the "second coming of Karlsson" is his extremely skilled offensive play. sweet wrists and logical decision making. His ability to see a possibility, and act on it is simply outstanding, and many believe that his passing skills is even better then his goal scoring possibilities. He is developing his defensive skills and growing into what many believe is a Top3 defensive player in the coming years.
 
Below is a few extra reason why this gripe is justified.

Gripe 2: Filip Forsberg
Current Stat(s): Skating(88), Passing (79), Scoring (90), Puckhandling (81)

Desired Stat(s): Skating(92), Passing (89), Scoring (93), Puckhandling (94)
 
Reasoning: Forsberg is on his way to become on of the finest exports from Sweden, hockey-wise. At a ripe age of 21, he already have skills that can match the absolutely best players in NHL. His puck-handling skills have lead to him leading the Nashville Preds statistics the last two years. This year his #1 position was based on 82 games in which Forsberg gathered 33 goals, 31 assists totaling 64 points. (Source: http://www.nhl.com/s...teamId=18&pos=S )
 
Forsberg have been praised for his smart plays and "being at the right place, at the right time" and his duality to be both scoring goals and providing the passes to other goal-scorers. On top of that, he already have similar "time-on-ice", TOI numbers that some of the best in NHL can not even match. ESPN rate him as the #21 forward of all in the NHL (Source: http://games.espn.go...lotCategoryId=3 )
 
This skills and "hockey brains" that Forsberg have, lead him to take the #6 spot of all left-wingers in NHL this season.
 
 
To continue the evidence, below is the official NHL statistics on some key factors:
 
Forsberg, Shooting Percentage: 13.4
(Alex Ovechkin have 12.6. Tyler Seguin have 11.9)
 
Forsberg, Time on ice per game 19:03 minutes
(Alex Ovechkin have 20:18, Jamie Benn have 20:01)
 
Forsberg, Shifts per game: 25.0
(Alex Ovechkin have 21.7, Jamie Benn have 26.7)
