People were so high on Sjogren and yet...he's possibly falling past the 10th spot?

After Forsberg (a gift from Zeus, or I guess Odin), there's not much to love.

I *have* heard great things about Galiev. It sounds like he has a ton of skill and a good character. He has a ways to go but he could become a player.

Wilson is a project.

Add Hamill (or Marshall).

Sjogren's mediocre play in the AHL before returning to Sweden probably has a lot to do with that. Had he impressed in the AHL, I think people would still have some excitement about him. I personally wouldn't mind trading him to a team that has an injury in training camp for a low pick.

Sjogren is not a prospect to me - age 24.

He missed selling Sjogren on the high so he should just hold at this point. Apparently a few teams were bidding for his services so he had value, now he has the flight risk tag.

He should have gotten a game or two but its almost like he was here on a tryout. At age 24, George should know what he has. He is done cooking yet was on simmer in Hershey.

Yeah, 19 games on North American ice at age 23 is clearly enough to be done "cooking."

What are we Americans going to do about this sarcasm epidemic? Just waste away in it?

Less importantly, did we get robbed in the Ribs deal? Is Eakin gonna be a legit 3rd line C for 15 yrs? Or is he a marginal NHLer? If Ribs re-signs (and is good) then I'm ok with it. If not, could be painful.

I think its a bigger adjustment for European MEN to move to Hershey than deal with the slightly smaller ice. From spending time in Europe Sweden and Hershey, I think it's a big adjustment for a foreigner.

Are you merely speculating that he struggled because of the smaller ice, or that he struggled at all? Having played on many different sized rinks in my profound roller career, its a non issue. Especially for a guy even you would project would be more suited to it.

You consider him a prospect, I consider him cooked. I am not sure what changes you and George are expecting to see from a 24 year old grinder.

We can agree to disagree without the Jim Facepalmers.

Jay Beagle wasn't fully developed at that point and wasn't an NHL regular until he was 26. Joel Ward wasn't an NHL regular until he was nearly 28.

LOL Jim Facepalmers.

Sjogen has to want to be here and prove he can play.

I think Sjogren wanted to be here by choosing us over other teams. He didnt want to be in Hershey.

I'd wager there weren't (m)any teams bidding for Ward and Beagle's services when they were toiling in the minors. Speculation on my part. But we are talking defensive forwards here that get by on hard work. Not goalies or D men.

Neither seemed to have break through years offensively before making it.

There could certainly be other factors in play. Lets just say, they started working out and showed up in camp in excellent shape and finally stuck. Or matured as people.

Maybe they were stuck in a numbers game, like Sjogren. They stuck it out, and he said F that, see you next year.

You gotta stick it out. How many total days was he in the States?

Had he dedicated himself he might be an NHLer right now. The NHL! Damn, I'd do almost anything to be there. Can't imagine saying, "Hershey for a couple months? Nah. See ya, Yanks!"

I'm guessing he banked a sweet signing bonus, too. That had to make his decision easier.

He now qualifies as an AHL veteran and will turn 26 next March, but yeah, I think he still qualifies. Kind of the forgotten man, organization-wise.

Sure, but he's been passed on the depth chart by a number of recent acquisitions. Schilling and Kundratek are already on the board, and I'd rank Kevin Marshall ahead of him too.

I'm encouraged about both Galiev and Wilson as welll as Wey. But at this point in the rankings, it is pretty thin.
