Magnus Nygren signs a two year ELC with the Habs
 
http://www.habsfuture.com/2013/05/ma...-montreal.html

His agent says it doesn't necessarily mean he's going to come over in NA.

le_sean 05-14-2013 08:01 AM

An unfortunate nickname for him.

Dr Gonzo 05-14-2013 08:02 AM

Yeah, not sure that'll play very well in North America. :laugh:

I assume it's pronounced Neye-Gah, but still...

Wandering Maroon 05-14-2013 08:05 AM

Bring over Magnus Nygren to North America
 
The guy's a stud. 51 games,13 goals,19 assists,32 points ,49 points +11. We need a right handed shot with size 6'. 2013 Borje Salming award winner for the best defender in the Swedish Elite League.

WeThreeKings 05-14-2013 08:08 AM

Subban-Nygren pairing on future PPs.

Wandering Maroon 05-14-2013 08:10 AM

I just posted a thread on him. Yeaaah it's about time. BTW who says that stud Swedish defencemen never turn out to be top NHLers. Borje Salming, Niklas Lindstrom, Ulf Samuelsson, Mattias Ohlund, Calle Johansson, etc... We need Swedes!

Who actually said that?

How is it some prospects start with 3 year ELCs and others start with 2 year ELCs? What causes the difference?

22-23 ->2 years
24 ->1 year

FieryTherrien 05-14-2013 08:29 AM

I did. You got a problem wit dat?

Top Corner2 05-14-2013 08:34 AM

nicely done. Way to get er done Bergy.

Ezpz 05-14-2013 08:39 AM

Good. Hopefully Pribyl is next. We have so many open contract spots it'd be a shame to not take a chance on him just because of skating.

dmanfish90 05-14-2013 08:39 AM

Seems to me like a Diaz clone, except 1 inch taller and was 2 years younger when he started playing well overseas.

Never seen the guy really play but his numbers this year look like Diaz' numbers from 3 years ago.

Le Tricolore 05-14-2013 08:40 AM

I hope he wins the Stanley Cup while a member of the Montreal Canadiens organization.

Natey 05-14-2013 08:40 AM

Great signing. Loved how upset he was about not being able to come over this year. Seems to really want to be an NHL'er.

Swedish League is a little better than the Swiss League.

IMO;

NHL
KHL
SEL
NLA
AHL

I thought it was pronounced "Ni-grin"

I thought so too, but still. Let's hope he turns out as good, hopefully better than Diaz. Guy looked shaky in his 1st PO series this year...

He was talking about his unusual nickname "Nyggah", pretty sure that won't be used when he comes to NA. :laugh:

You realize he'd just come back from a concussion, right? He's also the player that got Eller seriously injured, and besides one game, he didn't look very good the rest of the way. Probably felt horrible about that.

Bourque (who I really love), was just as bad when he first came back from his concussion. He was awesome by the time playoffs rolled around, but he had a bigger head start over Diaz as well.

Hopefully he's a better skater than Diaz, IMO Diaz has a weird skating stride. I know nothing about Nygren though.

Ah. 10char

The Y in Nygren sounds like the U in the French word sur.

The E sounds like the E in passť.

Jabba11 05-14-2013 09:10 AM

Finally, let's hope for him to show what he can do to all those RDS staff who wanted Quebecois as late round picks just because it's cute. especially Gaston Therrien

Habsfan18 05-14-2013 09:16 AM

Great news! Was getting worried.
