I wonder what kind of arrangements both have? I heard if Collberg doesn't crack the Habs he goes back to SEL, not sure if it's true. Nygren?

Since we already have a thread on the Nygren signing, I edited the thread title.

Glad to see Collberg signed! If I had to guess, I'd say he will be loaned to Frolunda to stay in the SEL next season.

Great news! That's Galchenyuk, Collberg, and Hudon all with contracts from the 2012 draft class already.

I'm pretty sure he still has a year left on his contract with Frolunda, but he would be fun to watch in the CHL because he'd probably destroy the league.

He can't have a contract with both Montreal and a professionnal team in Europe

I'm not sure he would destroy the CHL in his first season... That would be nice but destroying this lesgue is hard.

He has been playing against pros all year. Why do you think he should play
in junior next year ? Although maybe you just want to see him put up great
numbers in the CHL. I guess that is fun for us fans, but I doubt it's best for
his development.

He'll likely return to Sweden next year, FYI.

Actualy, this is exactly for his development that this would be the best. He barely played for the first half of the year, and most of his goal came from shootouts. He needs to PLAY. 20, 25, 30 minutes of icetime PP, PK, ES, he needs to be on the ice. CHL would help him gradually adjust to NA while playing a lot, where in AHL he would probably don't get a lot of icetime and waste a developpment year where he could rack up points and get great confidence for the next years.

Going to disagree with you there. Look at hornqvist, Loui Eriksson, Alex Steen, Silfverberg and others... Their first seasons in the SEL after being drafted are all unimpressive in terms of minutes and points.

He's already playing with men, if by next season he is capable of putting up points and playing minutes in the 3rd best league in world... he is actually ahead of schedule

Yes indeed. His 5 on 5 play needs quite a bit of work. However, he would be a a deadly weapon on the powerplay...

Many players have played against pros in Europe and had some trouble coming over in the CHL. And it's not like he dominated the pros back in Sweden. Even at the international level, his very good numbers were mostly gained through the powerplay. He would still learn a lot in the CHL.

Anyway, this discussion is irrelevant because he will probably play his next year in Sweden... before coming over.

The details on the new PTA aren't official yet, last i heard so we'll have to wait and see but I would assume that both would be able to buy out their SEL contracts if that's what the Habs wanted.

Last PTA there was a deadline to bring over signed Euro prospects but who knows if that will change.

That's not true, unless something changes. Engqvist was signed with the Habs and his SEL club. He was loaned by the Habs to his SEL club and counted against the 50 contract limit but was paid by his SEL club.

I presume this doesn't change his status in the short term, meaning I expect he'll still play in Sweeden next season. But it's nice to see some of our 12 picks getting signed quickly.

Playing in the one of the top leagues in the world will server him much better than taking a step back in competition and playing in the CHL. He'll have plenty of time to get adjusted to the rink size and NA style when he comes over.

How about he plays 45 minutes a night of Canadian PeeWee Hockey instead. More icetime = better, right?

People automatically assume that playing more = more development. In fact, most of the time, playing less = more practice time. Playing in Sweden will give him more time to get stronger and continue to improve his skills while playing against men. Plus his agent said that he intends to honour his contract with Farkestads so I expect he'll be back in Sweden and it's fine by me.

Edit : Frolunda, not Farjestads
