I'd like to weigh in and say that defensively Almqvist has had an absolute nightmare this season in GR. Just last night he did a Lilja and gave them the puck about 2 feet from the net for their second goal. The amount of giveaways and boneheaded plays he makes at AHL level is very worrying. At the end of December he was the ONLY defender with a minus rating (-1) with the next lowest Dman +10!
Not to mention the fact he doesn't seem to be getting any bigger weight and strength wise. I think Sproul, Oullett and Marchenko are already way ahead of him in the depth chart. I can him being waived next season.
