Anton Strålman

According to Swedish newspaper Expressen, Rangers are negotiating with dman Anton Strålman.

"I can confirm that we are in talks with the Rangers, says agent Gunnar Svensson"

"Rangers have been in touch and said that they are interested"

Not interested.

Mediocre offensively, terrible defensively. Eminger/Wotwitka as a spare/#6 is sufficient.

I'll confess to not knowing much about the kid.

Hard to judge +/- but this would make sense considering our D situation and the recent Swedish fad.

Well, he's played for Columbus. Almost every player on team will be a minus...however, he was the direct result of many of these minuses...so, yeah. He couldn't even crack the Devils' defense, he won't crack ours, IMO.

Seems to be a better choice than McCabe or someone like that.

Where is Semenov? Why isn't he an option this season?

Why continue to get burned on lateral moves? I mean is the talent much better than Bell, Woywitka, or Eminger?

If not, let these guys settle into the system. Upon Staal and Sauers return play the kids. (DelZotto, and Erixon)...Let them continue to develop. The results will come in time.

Well into a KHL season. And I doubt the Rangers are going to try to work their way through the transfer mess to get Semenov.

Plus, he ditched us, then we ditched him. Both instances were kind of undeserved. Have to think the bridge is burned.

Dont really know anything about him. Anyone have a scouting report on him?

Rather make a trade for a #4-5 dman.

I don't understand why we can't put together a decent package for a defenseman that's actually, ya know..talented in some facet of the game instead of trying to "save" these projects that "need a change of scenery". Better yet, why don't we put together a good package for a legit winger or someone that can score on a consistent basis? I'm fine with letting our current defensemen learn on the fly, but when 1/3 of our goals thus far have been in one game, I think it's time to stop looking to improve our blueline and look to our core to start producing. Outside of the Vancouver game, we haven't scored more than 2 goals during regulation.

He was part of a decent PP in Columbus. That would SEEM to be the appeal......on the surface anyway.

Only because you have to hope you're filling a temporary need. I think you at least need to see Staal, Sauer and Wolski on the ice before you begin dealing coveted commodities.

Personally, I consider the temporary needs filled already. Lion Hound is right that you've got to let Woywitka, Bell and Erixon settle in and get comfortable with the game plan before moving on to plan C. Hell, I think Woywitka has been a nice surprise and Erixon looks far more poised than I expected.

Stralman ranked many times higher compared to Erixon in Sweden ( not even any comparison made because that would be a joke. Stralman is just as good defensively aswell as Erixon, on big ice atleast ). All SEL teams wants him.

These figures doesn't look so bad either, right?

How exactly would it be getting burned? There is really nothing to lose.

Next to Lidstrom Stralman is the most talented offensive defenseman Sweden has right now. Enstrom certainly isn't as talented as Stralman are. I don't know why NHL can't seem to use his exeptional potential more.

Erik Karlsson i should not forget ofcourse

Fine with it. If the beginning of the season has proven anything, it's that you can never have too many defensemen.

Would much rather take a chance on Stralman, who I'm actually surprised is out of a job and I think may have had his stock fall after playing on a bad CBJ team, than give up assets unless we're actually making an IMPACT move. I think Stralman can actually be a good bottom pairing d-man with puck moving ability. I actually really liked Stralman and then he just fell off the radar last season. I assumed he would find a job with a new team this summer and was surprised when he didn't. I think it's definitely worth a chance. Not much to lose.
