Tallinder plays well in Sweden

Henrik Tallinder, who'll play with Linköping in the SEL during the lock-out, has started out very well. He plays on the first pair alongside Magnus Johansson, newly returned from Switzerland, with several caps under his belt. A big d-man with a smallish d-man.

I haven't seen him play yet, but according to reports he has been superb, playing an allround type of game, and have developed a lot in NA. He plays in all situations and have registered 2 goals and one assist in the three first games. I'll give you an playing update when I'll see him play, they won't broadcast Linköping in the next couple of weeks though.

He gains a lot of confidence, which could be worthful for his continuing development in Buffalo. Hopefully he'll play some with the National Team as well.

All of Buffalo's players are doing pretty well in Europe, we can only hope to god they're finally turning the corner.

Tallinder needs to add 10-15lbs of muscle to have that translate to NA though.

I still have faith in ol' Tallinder... I honestly thought he would start to turn the corner this year if there were a season.

Yeah I don't see how people forgot how good he was in his rookie season.

He had a bad first 40 or so games last year but started to play better.

One thing I'd like to see him learn is how to move the puck and protect himself a little better. The guy gets filled in too often for his lanky frame to not break--which is what we saw late his rookie year and repeatedly last season.

Kalinin took time and the investment paid off. Tallinder will be right there eventually too.

Well I have seen him in 2 games this season and I can say he´s been totally outstanding! He dominates the ice like no one.

But remember that Tallinder usually plays behind the top line consisting of Kristian Huselius, Brendan Morrison and Mike Knuble which makes it easier I guess. That line is developing into one of the best in Sweden, mainly due to Huselius fine effort so far.

Kristian Huselius congratulated by Henrik Tallinder and Magnus Johansson after a goal.

I've always thought Henrik will turn out to be a very solid 3-4 defenseman. Hopefully he can hone his skills in the Swedish league and have a breakout season when we start playing hockey again. Either way, I don't see why he's bad to have around...I don't think he makes many spectacular plays, but he's very solid and doesn't make hardly any positional mistakes. The only mistakes I've seen are just due to getting overpowered my opposing forwards, which shouldn't be too difficult to take care of with some strength training.




....And he has a MacGyver mullet, which is one of the coolest things ever.
