When that is said, Spelling is a really interesting prospect and a well spent 5th round pick.

I hope that he will spend the next two-three years in Sweden, adjusting to the top pro game, and then head to the Rangers training camp prior to 2014-15/2015-16 season, trying to make the team.

Here is a couple of highlights from the past season. Thomas Spelling is #8.

Just watch the entire video. Spelling scores two goals and adds an assist on his team's second goal. I watched this game live on Danish tv and as far as I remember, it was one of the best performances by Spelling of the season. He looks to be offside on his first goal, but different camera angles proved he wasn't.

Thank you Jacob Christian for your insight and videos. Much appreciated. It is always interesting and refreshing to get a perspective from a person who has actually seen these players play instead of the usual BS spewed from the so-called "Draft Experts" around here. Come on, you know who you are.

Thanks again Jacob and keep the comments coming.
