Assistant Coaches: Ulf Samuelsson, Scott Arniel, Dan Lacroix



From Modo and SHL to the New York Rangers and the NHL.
Ulf Samuelsson has clearly with a new job.
He becomes an assistant coach for Henrik Lundqvist and the other stars of the Rangers.
- It will be great, I played the self four seasons at the club, so it feels a bit like coming home, says Uffe to SportExpressen.se.

Tawnos 06-30-2013 01:31 PM

If this is true, I'm very, very happy about it.

Rangers79 06-30-2013 01:31 PM

Not a bad choice, has experience, ex ranger. Should make people happy

Bozle 06-30-2013 01:32 PM

Based on what I read, sounds like he's done well as a coach.

Seems like a good move.

Vitto79 06-30-2013 01:32 PM

Physical Dman on the roster I see:laugh:

Mats Zuccarelli 06-30-2013 01:33 PM

Good. Now, please get Guy Boucher as the other AC

The Gloaming 06-30-2013 01:33 PM

Interesting. I hope AV got to pick his own guys.

Will he suit up and finally fill the void for a nasty defenseman? :sarcasm:

nyr2k2 06-30-2013 01:47 PM

Nice. Welcome, Ulf.

That's why McIlrath is in the organization, and could compete for a spot in camp. Who better to coach a player like McIlrath then Ulf and Beuke.

Lorb 06-30-2013 02:08 PM

someone smeared Mr.Samuelsson a while ago. What are his down sides?

Sticky Fingers 06-30-2013 02:08 PM

I like!!!

BBKers 06-30-2013 02:11 PM

I don't even know why I like this so much, but I do! :)

*Bob Richards* 06-30-2013 02:43 PM

Also, RIP to opposing teams Assistant Coaches. Ours will **** theirs up.

Synergy27 06-30-2013 03:22 PM

Dude was sick on the PP in his day. He's clearly being brought in to fill that void. :sarcasm:

Hated Ulfie my entire life, even after he became a Ranger. My lasting memory of him is a goal that went into the Rangers net off of his face. Dude seems to have made a name for himself as a coach, but I don't know much, if anything, about the job he's done so I'm indifferent to this until I see what he brings.

Ola 06-30-2013 03:36 PM

Ulfie was a true warrior as a player. There are some dirty hits, but he got a much worse rep than his cheap shoots warrants because he didn't fight.

I liked him more as a player than a coach though. I think he has done a decent job, but nothing spectacular. He should be given one thing though; he has paid his dues. Assisted in the NHL. Assisted in the AHL. Head coaching job in the SEL.

He is a really tough, no-nonsense coach. I think he is pretty demanding, and I don't get the feeling that he is all that positive/up-beat.

TheDave1022 06-30-2013 03:59 PM

From Larry Brooks too

Told that Rangers have hired Ulf Samuelsson as one of Vigneault's assistant coaches...

Samuelsson has not yet signed contract but will be done...met last two days with Vigneault, will attend NYR prospects' camp that begins tms

94now 06-30-2013 04:03 PM

Time will show. I liked Sullivan. "Everything dies, baby, that's the fact..."
Ulf is one of my fav euros,third after Kovy and Jagr , on Broadway. Just forgot Nedved and Karpovtsev...

You should probably read up on him as a coach and get informed before acting so annoyed over an opinion based on nothing.

Bleed Ranger Blue 06-30-2013 04:08 PM

At the very least, he can teach our defensemen the art of the knee to knee hit.
