Ulf Nilsson To Join Me Thursday Afternoon at 2 PM

Ulf Nilsson will be our guest on the show Thursday as we will do two shows this week.

Because of Sweden being 6 hrs ahead of us here in the eastern part of the states we are doing the show at 2 PM EST on Thursday.

I will ask him if Potvin does indeed suck and if he think the hit was dirty that's for sure,

Any questions you guys want to relay to him I will try my hardest to ask him.

To link up with the broadcast Thursday afternoon at 2 PM or listen to the archived podcast.

Anders and Ulf were great. I met them both at the Meadowlands after a pre season game between the Flyers and Rangers.

This was when the Rangers were considering moving to the meadowlands many moons ago. Of course this was prior to the Rockies becoming the Devils.

Great job mouth.

Ask them about the hatered they faced for being non canadians in the NHL at that time. Hedberg used to drop his gloves on a Regular bases to fend off jerks. What was it like being part of the first full wave of non North Americans in the NHL

Mouth you must only call him "Lill-Pröjsan" which is his nickname in Sweden.

That was one of those rare times when it was a lot of fun to be a Rangers fan. Hedberg and Nilsson weren't superstars by any means but they were both very legitimate first-line players.

Ulf told me thats his nickname because his dad was Big Pröjsan who was a swedish soccer star.

Any idea how I say it correctly ? Ola can you type how it sounds in english ?

Great job as always getting the best guests Mouth. I have a few questions for Ulf so feel free to use any (or none of these):

-Why did he choose to come to NY and leave the Jets? It's true the Rangers made the playoffs the previous year but they were by no means true contenders.

-Did him and Anders Hedberg want to go somewhere together or did it just work out that both signed with the Rangers?

-Discuss his relationship with Carey Wilson's family (as Carey talked about).

-Playing for Fred Shero vs. Herb Brooks; differences.

-Elaborate more on the end of his career; he retired fairly early.

-And finally in his opinion if he was healthy for the 1979 playoffs, would he have been the difference in beating Montreal?

I know the answer already. He was a customer back in the 90s when I worked for Swedish Bank PKBanken. I asked him about back them and the answer is no. It was a clean hit according to Ulf. He blamed the crappy garden ice. He said when he got hit he caught his skate in a rut.

Sorry mouth I haven't had the time to check back in this thread since i posted, I guess that its kind of late now though...

...anyway the tricky part is the "ö" in lill pröjsarn. The rest is the same

Ö is pronounced like the first sound in like "earning", if you get what I mean. Like "lill Pr-ea (as in "ea"rning) - sarn".

Interview went great and thanks for the help with the questions and dont worry about it Ola but thanks for the explanation I like to know these things anyways.

Summation

Ulf admits by the time he got to New York his body was pretty much done.

said the he and anders were only going as a package so they could watch each others backs and help adjust to both WHA and NHL.

For some reason wasn't high on Swedish NHL Hof'er Borje Salming.

Russians in International play had clean urine samples hidden in their hockey pants during after game drug testing.

As a poster said previous says Potvin Hit was clean , his skate got caught in a rut in the crappy garden ice.

9 knee operations , 3 crushed vertebrae, Hip replaced.

His kids all born in North America and live on east coast of U.S

Says players today don't play for the shield on their uniform that whats missing is team pride and honor.

Very candid and a lot more outgoing now , then he was back in the day.

Ulf is very candid. I recall him doing a motivational speech for the bank in New York and as most people should know Sweden is a socialist country and he found issues with that in his speech and why the Bank, generally, was not as efficient as it should be and he made a comparison about team sports and working as a team in business. He concluded with and I am paraphrasing "in Sweden team work means getting someone else to do the work and you taking credit for it". Well all the Swedes were up in arms and all the Americans were shaking their heads thinking "yeah, I can see that".

I laughed my rearend off! He was dead on.

One of my great hockey regrets is I had a Potvin Sucks tshirt on under my jersey at the Garden once, and Ulf was sitting in the next section. I ran into him in the hallway, and said hi, but he was with his (grandkids?) and I didn't ask him to sign the t-shirt.
