Since I imagine the Ducks started the process as soon as possible on Monday (he was a Duck by 9 AM local time) and Dallas probably started the process as soon as possible this morning with Smith, it would seem Wednesday might be out of the question.

However, it's reasonable to assume that Hagman's situation is easier since he was likely just renewing a previously expired visa (he played for Florida and Dallas before going to Canada).
well i would also assume it is easier for a canadian to get an american work visa than it is for a finn so we really have no idea, what is clear is that he will not be able to play tonight
