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.

Forsberg, Shooting Percentage: 13.4
