well, it was either Örebro or MB. I prefer MB being relegated (granted they lose to either Vallentuna or Troja/Ljungby). I would be really surprised if Troja does not defeat both teams and get promoted.

Not to hijack this thread or anything but I think something is a bit odd when two organizations that do not even have representation in allsvenskan are fighting for spots in the top junior league in the country. Not to put down their efforts at developing junior players, but the allsvenskan teams should be richer and have more resources to pour into this.

I know how that is, have seen allot of thoose versions in HPDA. But Asplöven really managed to create a team this season, but maybe thats not so strange since they have partyed together 3 times a week for 6 month...

Heard from the coach of Asplöven that Örebros goalie just hadn't been good enough. He felt they just got lucky in this series -- getting timely goals.

if you get three shorthanded goals against you in three games plus getting too many penalties, you won't win anything.
i don't know how nissinen was, but there were more things wrong than just him.

I think I heard that they are trying to keep the core together and add Jr's to that core, which makes sense. No point in throwing a bunch of U-20's in there and get hammered if you have a functioning core and can add a couple of juniors every season.

The big question is of course if they are going to let the young guys get any ice time, and what kind of ice time they will get. I can easily see how Örebro will beat up on the countryside in the regular season and then get the brilliant idea that they need to "buy" a new team for the post season from wherever there are players available as "this might be the year" and "we better take the chance" on behalf of the juniors' development.

I saw that Jens Nielsen is going to Kumla.

*sigh*

Yep... the story seems to repeat itself once again. I believe the same articel read that 31-year-old Dwayne Hay, http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...id%5B%5D=19353, was onboard as well.

The buzz was that ÖHK was going to be ÖIK once again and bring in homegrown talent to the team. The idea was to generate a better attitude and desire to win as well as sell the people in Örebro on its hockey team once again.

It seemed like a reasonable and achievable plan.

and they got younger again. 20y olds ruud and ring signed with lindlovens. but this time it's ok. both were simply not good enough, not even for J20.

I work with Dwayne Hay's dad. He told me his son was playing in the SEL. I guess that's not true. He also said he had played in the RSL. Not true either.

jonas almqvist re-signed. i really like that. he belongs to this team.

and the newest addition is defender tomas mitell (mariestad). was the highest scoring defender in the whole D1 last season. seems like a good addition. but he's 27, so he's not the start of the youth movement.

I think one of them, either Dwayne or his dad, added a little enthusiasm to that story.

They also lost Torstensson to MB!
Well, for Örebro it may make sense. Defense was not the strong suit last year.
I wonder what their goalie plans are?

you heard it here first: johan holmqvist!

eriksson will be the backup it seems. and they should be able to get a good starter. it's örebro, it will be 35+ or so. where's trevor kidd these days?

i like the rumor about sättermann. 18y old who had 34 points in 27 games in division2. that sounds interesting.

Just speculating with some finnish options in goal goalies without contract as far as I know. Most of these are rather well known, which is what I expect Örebro to go after.

Former kings finnish draft pick goalie, Carl Grahn is without contract. Rumours place him in lower leagues in sweden.

Antti Ore is another senior goalie without contract.

Both have been playing mostly Mestis.

Jan Lundell hasn't gotten a new contract with HIFK. He is 34 years old and has been a starter in SM-liiga a couple of seasons here and there.

Pasi Häkkinen is without contract. Sharing the net of Ilves last season, 30 years old. Journeyman in SM-liiga.

Joni Puurula, 25 years old. Montréal draft pick. A bust or boom kind of goalie that hasn't looked all that good at all times. Jokerit backup last season.

I'm wondering if that wouldn't bee too expensive for them though. It's one thing to offer Finnish players a contract as a way to make some "extra bucks" once they are eliminated from the play-offs in Finland, but to ask someone to relocate for at least a season and then play in a "crappy" div 3 club would probably require a hefty pot of gold in the end of that rainbow, me thinketh.

What I would love for them to do is along your lines however. I hope they would approach a proven, older guy, like Jan Lundell, and offer him a two-year-contract as a player/goalie coach, which would then justify a bigger salary. Not that I know anything about Jan, so he might not be the right man for such a job, but I'm sure there are a couple of great, aging, players, who are well wired to coach and open to play while giving coaching a try.... then again, that would require faith in their own Jr. ranks as well as patience, which seems to be foreign concepts to Örebro Hockey Klubb.

If they're too bad for the SM-liiga, I don't think they really care about the level, just that the pay would be better than in mestis...

Sweden needs better goalie coaches. Lundell could work.

and the new starting goalie is:
http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=309

i've never seen him play, but his stats look like he could be a pretty good D1 goalie.
and at least he's no finn.
