If there's truth to the report, then Samuelsson would logically be replacing Dan Lacroix in handling the defense as Ulf was a defenseman.
Samuelsson has sort of always been a concern from an outsider's perspective because of the way he played, although he did seem to be on the good side of a lot of guys as well given that he was an assistant with Gretzky during his years in Phoenix and Gretzky can get anyone he wants.
The record of his teams is another thing, but of course just looking at the record, it's hard to come to any sort of conclusion that feels comfortable. He was retained by Dave Tippett though so that's a very good sign to me.
There is Lindback and to a more notable extent, Hedman in the lineup that Samuelsson may be able to connect to because of Sweden.
It may also be erroneous python as it could be that SFY has shown some level of interest, although not necessarily offered.
We shouldn't forget that the team pretty much needs to ensure they've got a replacement lined up so they don't dump a coach and then find out they can't get somebody better so even if it doesn't seem like it, the wheels
be in motion.
