I figured. This move probably won't have any affect on the Rangers. It just gives us some depth in the AHL.

Is the guy good enough to be an emergency call up? Like if we lose one of our forwards to injury for a game or 2, and we need to call someone up to take his spot, would he be able to hold his own for a game or 2?

At the very least it gives Henrik another Swedish guy to bond with at training camp.

I think it's a no-risk move for a guy who will, at least, compete hard and be aggressive. (I've liked him for several years now.....in my Sim league I drafted him back in '03 and hung on to him thinking someone was going to bring him over eventually)

He's only 25............I think he has a good shot at making the team.............he's a Swede folks...........would fit on a 4th line with Betts and Sjostrom...........although I still like Moore and Orr to play their

Let's see what he can do

Definately. He's a good skater and won't look out of place for shorter stretches.

I like this move a lot. I've liked Jamtin a lot form the little that I've seen of him and also from what I've read in the past.

Really nice to see Andy Jämtin compete for a spot in the Rangers-team.

As many have said before, Jämtin is a Avery light. He will provide amazing energy to the team and he shows some good skills from time to time. He will be a good 4th liner for sure.

Those who says he sucks is just Jämtin-haters because here in sweden it´s either a love or hate relationship with Jämtin.

It will be interesting to see what he can do in North America!

Good luck Andreas!!

which means he was scouted by Hakan Andersson, and he doesn't usually miss...

i see this as being a "just incase we don't resign Avery" move for the Rangers

Maybe this is a signing to help bring more energy to our team during those inevitable (assuming he signs) stretches where Avery's on the IR?

maybe he just comes from europe to earn a spot on the team?? i doubt he goes to the minors unless he really wants to make the NHL. most of those euros go back look what happened with martin richter and hannu pikarainen.

anyone know if Jamtin played on the same line as Korpikoski in the 05-06 season when they were on the same team?

For very limited time probably.

Sounds like a decent move to sure up 4th line. Anyone who has seen him, can he put the puck in the net or create at all? Either way, Avery light sounds nice.

He is not a great scorer, has a decent wrister. Not a very good setup man, half-decent hands.

A lot of the videos of him on Youtube are other players attacking him. Pretty hysterical.

good call with the Korpikoski connection to Jamtin............and since they were on the same team they likely had a little time together regardless

The Avery light moniker refers to his energy and constant yapping.

But he's not as talented as Avery in any other aspect of the game.

I think he'll need quite a lot of time in Hartford to adjust and toughen up his game before he can contribute with the Rangers.

Possibly a Danny Carcillo clone it looks like. Just less attacking by him -- more by other players.

Is that accurate at all, Swedish fans?

If he was a selfish player he would've spent his time on TPS in the pressbox as they are a team that relies on teamwork.

I would definately not call him a selfish player, but all agitating/energy players do take stupid penalties...

Especially since both guys were energy guys. Even though Korpikoski got the occasional call on the top line, looking really lost.

Carcillo is much, much, much stronger physically. Jämtin is pretty strong for being a swedish role player, but against north american role players, he is quite light in the strength department.. More of a guy that goes for smaller players, or offensive players than the other teams goons or agitators.

true but does he take penalties in the offensive zone when his team has the puck like Hollweg? or does he know when to take a penalty??

Everything is a penalty in the SEL.. So it's hard to know what penalties are justified and which ones aren't before he plays in NA.

I don't think he is prone to taking that kind of penalties though.
