Whenever I’ve seen Marcus Davidsson play, I’ve come away a little underwhelmed. He’s a good all-around player, he can skate very well and has a good skill set but I just don’t see a ton of NHL potential with this guy. I’m not convinced his ‘drive’ is where it needs to be for him to make an impact at the NHL level.

My comparable for him is Jacob Josefson, a former first round pick of the New Jersey Devils who is currently playing a depth/utility role on that club. For me, that’s kind of what I see for him in the NHL, unless he decides to stay and play out his career in Sweden.
