See this is actually our best shot at hitting a home run from a nothing pick (anything after the 2nd round is a nothing pick). The chances of drafting a NHLer with something below pick #90 is incredibly low.

If anything, by drafting this guy we skip forward 2 years and avoid having to wait these 2 years for him to put on muscle, mature, etc.

Love this pick. Might never amount to anything but I love what I saw from him in that video. What a great release he has. That pass in the 2nd vid was pretty sick too. Can't teach that ****. I like him a lot.

Will be interesting to see what he can do over the course of a full season playing for Färjestad.

Here are his combined (season and PO) stats in the SEL last year:

36gp-7g-18a-25p

Not bad at all. Admittedly I haven't actually seen him play (although I doubt too many people here actually have) so I can't speak about him too much, but it appears there's certainly some potential there on the offensive end. Decent size and from what I've heard has a pretty good shot from the point. 6'1, 192 pounds. Already 21, so he's probably closer than people think. I'm assuming we'll see him in Hamilton for 2012-1013.

Don't they have two years, from the time they draft him?

Nygren joined in the middle of the season and started to produce right away. Everyone got aware of him as he was the one to prevent from shooting in the power play. Can make beautiful passes aswell.

He need to work on his strength tho.
I still stand by my comparison to Wisniewski, and that's having seen him play. Not as they were at the same age necessarily, but what their strengths and weaknesses are, and what kind of style they play. Same "tool box", as it were.

no, they have 2 years to sign him, right when his contract with Farjestad expires.

Ahh thanks.

Maybe he can bring Westin over with him. I believe Westin's contract ends then.

First of all, thanks to all the swedish fans on this board. It's easier to size the player with you. He could be an interesting pick. I wish that its not only a good half a year and a sweet nothing after. This guy will be ready before Beaulieu and Tinordi. Maybe a just another year in Sweden and a good camp after can make him a legit contender for the 5-6th spot on the team in 2012-13. The only thing, nobody seems pretty high on his defensive. It could be difficult for him with a coach like Martin.

I asked a Swedish friend about him, he was impressed with how good he was last season, his only concern was that he was on a very good team to begin with. He thinks he's good enough for the NHL though.

I've been high on him since researching him on draft day. Wouldn't be surprised to see him spend very little time in Hamilton, and end up with the Habs very soon after coming across the ocean. Kid has size and offensive skill. I also noticed that he's far out-producing both of the 2011 1st round picks he's playing with, too (Brodin, Klefbom). True, he has 3 years on them, but if he turns out to be even half of the player either of them is in the long run, Nygren will be well worth a 4th round pick, and should very well find a spot on our D in the post-Gill/Spacek/Markov era.

Brodin is the opposite of Nygren, very defensive minded while Nygren ain't that at all.
Klefbom don't get very much ice time.

Tho 11 points from Magnus is good, especially in the team that has done least goals in the league. In 20 of 23 games so far we have only done 2 or less goals.
We've only managed to do 40 goals in 23 games...
He started the season by doing 4 of our first 9 goals.

Upside: Howitzer of a shot, PP specialist, huge heart for the team and the fans (atleast now, as he is from the city and is practically raised in the home stands). Never late standing up for a teammate that has been cheapshotted or such.

Downside: Abit to light, needs to up his defense alot, play more physical, work on the first pass in the own zone.

With Markov,Subban,Diaz,Weber,Beaulieu and Nygren we could be the first team to use 3 pairs of d-men on PP

And then, "we should offer him $1.5 million and use the surplus to try to sign Ponikarovski as a FA."

Only after Streit left did the silly critiques of the guy finally abate.
