I wanted Eklund with the pick, but Edvinsson is growing on me. A lot.

So AGAIN I translated an article with
@DetroitRedWings

draftee Simon Edvinsson for you non-Flag of Sweden speakers out there. The original author is
@henrikleman

and I have no part in his work other than hastily translating it for #LGRW fans.

Hopefully he's a quicker skater than Seider.

Seider's lack of speed has been apparent in a couple of games already, where he got outskated to the puck by much quicker forwards. Fortunately, he seems smart enough not to put himself in a position where it's an issue.

Yeah, not so sure about that.
Skates very well for his size, but I've been a bit surprised at how slow he's looked, compared to what I expected.

Don't think he's fast but he is mobile, good using edges to change direction quickly.... His spinorama demonstrated skating ability. Long reach.

Seider and Edvinsson are both unquestionably great skaters. Eddy's a bit flashier, but Seider is smooth and efficient, that's how you play 23 minutes a night immediately. He does not look quick, but does not get beat to spots.
