From Modo and SHL to the New York Rangers and the NHL.
Ulf Samuelsson has clearly with a new job.
He becomes an assistant coach for Henrik Lundqvist and the other stars of the Rangers.

Dude was sick on the PP in his day. He's clearly being brought in to fill that void.
Hated Ulfie my entire life, even after he became a Ranger. My lasting memory of him is a goal that went into the Rangers net off of his face. Dude seems to have made a name for himself as a coach, but I don't know much, if anything, about the job he's done so I'm indifferent to this until I see what he brings.
Ulfie was a true warrior as a player. There are some dirty hits, but he got a much worse rep than his cheap shoots warrants because he didn't fight.
I liked him more as a player than a coach though. I think he has done a decent job, but nothing spectacular. He should be given one thing though; he has paid his dues. Assisted in the NHL. Assisted in the AHL. Head coaching job in the SEL.
He is a really tough, no-nonsense coach. I think he is pretty demanding, and I don't get the feeling that he is all that positive/up-beat.
