Predators to sign Linus Videll

http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportblade...icle2842721.ab

Sorry, the link is in Swedish, though an online translator gave me the gist.

Basically says that the Preds have been negotiating for months with Videll. He is under contract in Sweden this year but has an out clause..they'd want him to come over this year. Deal likely announced this week.

Awesome stuff if true, especially with Hornqvist coming over as well. Videll's size\scoring is something the Preds could desperately use.

Is this the same Linus Videll who was drafted by the Avalanche years ago? If so I am not sure it is all that awesome unless he has improved leaps and bounds.

It is, and apparently he has. There was a pretty big buzz earlier this year, as he was considered one of the top free agent forwards in Europe. Several Swedish posters preferred him to Brunnstrom, in fact.

Yeah, I just checked his stats on the Södertälje site, he's come a long way playing in the SEL. Expect him to do some good in Milwaukee, maybe even with the Preds in 08/09.

Please let this be true. The Ads just lost Ellison to Europe, and Videll could be his replacement and have a pretty good shot of playing spot duty for the Preds next year and maybe sticking to the lineup. He could probably compete for a spot on the big club right out of training camp, but it wouldn't hurt to have him in Milwaukee until after next season when the torrent of 4th liners contracts are up.

supposedly it's a 2-way deal, so I assume he'd start in Milwaukee
