Magnus Nygren is under contract with Farjestad until 2013, but if what I assume is correct, we can sign him to a conctract and have him come over here if we'd like. Would you guys rather he played another year in Sweden, or would you rather he came over to Hamilton this year?

Also, another assumption; Josiah Didier and Colin Sullivan aren't scheduled to play college hockey until the 2012-2013 season. Could they theoretically play in the CHL this year? I don't expect them to, but it'd be cool.
Didier was scheduled to go to DU in 2012 but it appears he changed plans or the coach wanted him a year sooner. He's going to DU in the fall as of yesterday at least.

Sullivan I'd rather see in the CHL then back the USHS but who knows if he would consider that route, got to be hard to pass up a chance to get an education at one of the top universities in the world. Perhaps if he was a 1st rounder it would be a little more likely but who knows what impact getting drafted by the Habs will have on him and what if any say they have for where they would like him to play.

Nygren since there's currently a transfer agreement with Sweden, we can sign him and either bring him over or lend him back to SEL. Hamilton at this time is thin on defense, granted that could change depending on what PG does this summer but if he looks good then I'm all for bringing him over.
