I agree Holmstrom was the best at that, but you can teach players to go to the front of the net and screen; hell, he didn't start out doing that, you know. The only thing you can't really teach is the hand-eye coordination, and as long as Andersson has that, he should be a good candidate.

(sorry for the OT discussion)

I've been really high on Jarnkrok ever since he was drafted, everything I've read about the guy makes me real excited to see what he does with the team. I mean, people have compared him to Zetterberg, his name translates to Iron Hook, like Yzerman translates to Iron Man, he just sort of fits the linear progression we've had going. I've caught a few Brynas IF games and he looks good, even without Silfverberg. I just hope he can stay healthy, he's has some health issues the last couple of seasons. (I'm not suggesting he'll be of Zetterberg's level, obviously, but the organization is better with Jarnkrok in the system than without.)

What do you think the over/under should be on the # of games he'll play there before someone on this board suggests he should be playing on the Wings over "Insert any players name here"? 2 or 3 tops would be my guess.

I don't see why he can't get a few games with the Wings near the tail end of the season. Kinda like how Sheahan got a game out of college, if management is soo high on this kid I think they'd want to test his mettle.

Well according to Khan, it's official.

He's going to GR and will play 9 games then go back to Sweden. So no playoffs, but we should be able to get a good look at him.

Only for 9 games so likely no games with the Wings, but I'll take it

I'll even shell out the money for AHL live if I have to, I'm so excited to see him play in NA

I hope he lights the world on fire quickly so that Babs and Kenny give him a couple of games with the big club before the end of the regular season.

Article's about Jesper Fasth who's going to the Rangers but has to return to Sweden by April 15(for the World Champs). Swedish HF says they've worked up similar deals with a couple of players, and I guess Calle is one of those.

Also, Z traveled with the team in 2002. I bet most people here would have been complaining that he wasn't playing in the playoffs... I only say that, because I'm a prospect hound and I thought it was wrong we weren't putting him in a little. And I was wrong.

We'd have to healthy scratch multiple guys even with the injuries we have. Not impossible, but have to figure it's not likely.
