Magnus Nygren

Curious why Magnus Nygren is not getting any attention. I haven't seen him play but he has good stats in Hamilton and great stats in the Swedish Elite League. What does this kid need to do to get an opportunity in the NHL?

Is there serious flaws with his game?

I think he could be an NHLer someone fromo Detroit's organization. The problem is he still needs to work on his defensive zone and need more strength. He's a good powerplay guy and gets most of his points from there.

Yannick Weber #2?

I've never seen Nygren play so I have no idea who we can compare him to.

Try Streit.

He is better than Weber IMO.

More like Ma Bergeron. Big shot from the point.

Doubt he'll ever be as good as Streit, he's got a booming shot, is alright defensively, maybe a 4-5-6 guy but I doubt it's here & especially not this year, Tinordi can't even stay with the big club, let alone Nygren, he'll probably be a guy that'll be dealt imho.

A player he sometimes reminds me of is Gilbert.

He's a little choppy with his movements and skating. In the preseason he lost his coverage sometimes. But, he's got a canon for a shot.

It would be great if he, Dietz and Tinordi were to pan out, as Beaulieu appears to have. We'd be set on D for a long time.

would be dumb to deal him away. Streit was a good player and was a big mistake not signing him. We had trouble replacing him till we finally got subban. He is better than weber and weber is still in the nhl.
Dealing nygren would be a big mistake. He should be playing with us thats it. Why give a good player away? Seems dumb to me

Magnus Nygren could have a chance next year and he will not be trade at the deadline.. i put money on Pateryn. I can see Nygren pairing with a guy like Emelin and be a 2nd pp d-man

I doubt Nygren has that kind of upside, I just don't see it in his game, it wouldn't be a "big" mistake, there's just too much depth, do you think MT would play him over Weaver, Allen? Highly doubt it.

I don't see why he wouldn't be useful with his shot and he can also hit. A better and younger Gilbert with a heavier shot but I. Don't think he is as good at blocking shots

I've seen Nygren really only once and he seemed like a pretty quick skater so I can't see why the D side of his game can't develop if it really is that bad (which I don't know if that's true or not) but the offense is too good to ignore.

He definitely deserves a shot before being dealt. Plus he gets full marks for coming back to Hamilton and actually producing. I thought he was gone for good after last year. Never thought in a million years he'd come back to Hamilton. Good for him.

Streit wasn't even a #7 guy here. Amazing what playing time can do to help mature a player.

I thought he'd make more of a push in camp, but what I saw... well, it wasn't really even close.

There's no harm in keeping him for depth but I still don't see him ever making a huge impact here.

Made just as much of a push than the other rookie d-men. I don't think any of you can tell me with a straight face Beaulieu, Tinordi, Dietz or Pateryn would make your team if you were GM/coach after their training camps.

No, honestly none of them stood out to me personally, Pateryn looked the worst out of all IMO, I thought Drewiskie looked solid, he's fine insurence/depth & good for the youngsters in Hamilton.

IIRC Nygren was paired with Boubou in pre-season.

His stats are nice, hopefully he gets a shot.

Last season he was much better than both Tinner and Beaulieu in the AHL. I haven't had time to watch many Bulldogs games this season apart from early ones in October and November, but he seemed to have played at roughly the same level as last season. IMO he'll make the team next season on the third pairing instead of Pateryn.

Looked good in camp. Some physicality, nice heavy shot. Beaulieu just looked a hell of a lot better(although Beaulieu looked a bit bored).

IIRC all our young defensemen were pretty bad in the preseason (save for Dietz).

What does he have to do?
  • Kneecap Bryan Allen
  • Tell Mike Weaver that Cardboard Pacioretty doesn't love him anymore.
  • Get an engraved gold watch for Gonchar's retirement dinner.
  • Find a trade partner for Alexei Emelin.

But seriously:

Markov Subban
Beaulieu Gilbert
Tinordi Nygren

is a better defense than the Habs have dressed most nights this season.

He's missed a lot of time and barely played in the AHL last year, so we'll need to see how he handles a full season on the smaller ice but in the little I've seen of him in the AHL I like what I see a lot. that shot is just sick.

he does remind of a bit of Streit, but hard to compare since Streit was older/more mature when he came over.

hopefully next camp he shows more. I would like to see him get a shot with the Habs next season if possible. I think our PP could really use his cannon from the point.
