Moen go, Holmqvist come

Just prior to the draft, the Blackhawks traded winger Travis Moen to Anaheim for center Mikael Holmqvist, a 1st round pick of the Mighty Ducks in 1997

You guys definitely won this trade, imo. I don't understand why Burke would trade Holmqvist away for Moen. Here's his profile, btw:http://tsn.ca/nhl/teams/player_bio.a...79&hubName=ANA

I think Mikael Holmqvist wasn't going to come back with the Ducks

I'll take Holmqvist.

Moen is decent if he get 5-7 minutes and plays 40 games.

Wow, enforcers have really been overvalued lately

Not that Holmqvist is a lot, but he's more than Moan. Rejoice! We'll never have to see him on Ruutu's wing ever again

Holmqvist definetly can be a good third liner for you guys...the only question is that he is a RFA who signed a deal to play in Sweden last month.

So it may be 50-50 whether or not he will be in the NHL this season.

True.

But it's a good chance to take considering what we gave up.

Didn't care about Moen much. Holmqvist is a decent return. Worth a shot at least as a third liner.

There is an out clause in the Sweden contract, i know that for sure.

Not any more. Mikael Holmqvist has re-written his contract in Sweden so that he no longer has an NHL out clause. It's now also a 3-year deal.

No out clause, 3 yrs... He basically srewed his NA career.

Hawks surely would have wanted to take a look at him in the camp, why else would they have traded for him in the first place?

Is the reputation of Wirtz's organ-I-zation this bad or what?

Then again, maybe he was told by Tallon that he was traded only to play in Norfolk and he didn't like it...

As far as I'm concerned, I don't mind him staying over there. Leaves a spot for a prospect in Chicago or Norfolk. We drafted plenty of forwards.

You're probably right. I kind of liked him his last two seasons in FEL though, I guess he just never panned out as expected.

Hawks basically traded Moen for nothing, which pretty much was his value anyway...

Isn´t it? Chicago can sign Johan Lindström just as well as Holmqvist if the new deal between IIHF and NHL goes trough. Had he not rewritten his contract the door for Michael would still be open to the NHL regardless of any IIHF/NHL-deal.

Apperently the NHL-clause is still in since he can leave the club. It could be a way to put pressure on Chicago for more money so maybe he can get 600-800k instead of the minimum.

And it seems so stupid by him to leave when it seems that he has a good chance to make a team.

Well you can't really say it's a NHL-clause, because that would mean that all players in Europe has an NHL-clause in their contract. If the new deal between IIHF and NHL goes trough ANY player in Europe can break their contract with their european club to sign in the NHL.

According to a local newspaper in Linköping (where Holmqvist is signed) Holmqvist turned down an offer from Chicago last week. Chicago is probably not willing to pay enough to sign Holmqvist and that's probably why he changed the contract.

The only thing it states is that all players in Linköping can break their contracts, you can make the contracts so that they are unbreakable AFAIK, but apperently Linköping doesnt do that.

All the contract stuff becomes moot if Holmqvist doesn't want to play in the NHL for anyone, which appears to be the case.

Seems to be one of those guys who wants to stay at home even if it means never making a tenth the money. They're rare, but they exist.

I dont blame him because he would not have made the Hawks this year IMO. He would have had to spend some time in Norfolk.

Don´t underestimate swedish meatballs....

Michael is still young and he could very well return to the NHL in the near future. Furthermore I'll bet he is keen on playing with Team Sweden, fighting for a spot on the olympic roster. A strong showing with Team Sweden in the Olympics and/or the World Championships should put his "NHL-career" back on track again.

And Holmqvist apparently changed his mind again. He has now signed a contract with Chicago.
