Told everyone there was more to his "concussion" story than meets the eye. Most people don't miss almost an entire season with a concussion. I don't think he's coming back. Don't expect this guy to come back to N.A.

Too bad. I think he could have been good.

if he was 100% healthy and just didn't want to play in Hamilton, the Habs could have loaned him back to his SHL club. So it seems likely that he was still bothered at least until later in the season. But it's a shame that it didn't work out here as imo he would be our top D prospect currently so to lose him stings a bit.

Not sure if you guys know but Nygren committed to playing for Färjestad next season. Sad... i thought he could be a really good NHL player. One of my favorite SHL players

Apologies i didnt see the thread already on him. Still he could of been a great NHL player imo

The Habs must keep Petry. They don't really have another offensive RD coming up.

Nygren has some potential it's too bad it did not work out. He could have been the 2nd offensive D-men on the right side behind PK.

Can you imagine young Markov in Quebec City playing for the Citadelles for 2 seasons? He made it out alive and made over 50M

would think he has an NHL out clause in there since he's only 24, unless his time in Hamilton scarred him away from North America for good.

Hopefully the Habs offer him a QO. Who knows he could pull a Emelin and be back some day. There is no harm in retaining his rights.

Unless of course they need to move O'Reilly for Nygren straight up, due to Salary Cap problems still!

The 10th overall pick ?

If they can work that, I bet they can work a deal with DSP worth the 1st overall right?

My apologies to any hamiltonites but the city is an absolute ****hole. It's filled with flag toting truck dealerships amongst one story crackhouses. Alongside Coventry england its by far the worst city I've ever been to and I've been everywhere in Eastern Europe.

not surprised the guy didn't like it coming from Sweden where the girls are pretty.

I hope you're not comparing Quebec City to Hamilton here...
As for Markov biggest challenge early on, it wasn't the Citadelles, but Tremblay in Montréal.

This kinda... I just can't get mad at anyone wanting to bail out of Hamilton... I just can't.

Such a good thing we finally relocated our farm team.

I think I'm one of the biggest Nygren fans around here but I wouldn't have given him a look. Last year in his first season in North America, he should have gotten used to the smaller ice in the AHL, but he didn't want to stick it out and left for home. So at the start of this year they needed to send a message to him that it wasn't ok to just up and leave your team. Personally I think it was the right call, he was doing great imo and as was reported they were set to call him up but he had just gotten injured. Too bad cause there's no telling what might have happened had he not been injured at the time.

Why does the Habs have so much problems with their prospects out of Sweden or Finland ? Wrong picks ? Bad development ? DLR seems the only one since ages to fit.

That's because DLR is the only one that we have to show for many years of drafting out of Sweden. I don't know what the real issue is other then most have been later round picks. Here's what I wrote in another thread,


Quote:
'94- Peter Strom (200th overall)

'95- Niklas Anger (112th)

'96- Kim Staal (92nd)

'00- Johan Eneqvist (109th)

'03- Christopher Heino-Lindberg (177th)

'07- Nichlas Torp (163rd)

'10- John Westin (207th)

'11- Magnus Nygren (113th)

'12- Sebastian Collberg (33rd), Erik Nystrom (154th)

'13- Jacob De La Rose (34th)

The Habs have little to show from drafting out of Sweden. DLR and Nygren are the only players currently in the system and who knows how much longer Nygren will remain. Collberg led to Vanek. That's it. Westin had a breakout year in the tier-2 league on the same team as Nystrom, he's a FA now but perhaps the Habs are keeping an eye on him.

here's what I wrote about our Finnish draft picks,

Quote:
'94- Marko Kiprusoff (70th overall), Arto Kuki (96th overall)

'96- Timo Vertala (181st)

'97- Ilkka Mikkola (65th)

'99- Mikko Hyytia (225nd)

'00- Joni Puurula (243rd)

'01- Martti Jarventie (109th)

'03- Oskari Korpikari (217th)

'09- Joonas Nattinen (65th), Petteri Simila (211th)

'13- Artturi Lehkonen (55th)

So far they have nothing to show outside of 4 pts from Kiprusoff. Only Lehkonen and Nattinen remain in the system. Nattinen left for the SHL after spending 3 years in the AHL so they retained his NHL rights but is likely not in the plans any more. Lehkonen is still young so we'll see how it goes for him.

Magnus Nygren

Couldnt find a thread about Nygren, has anybody heard anything at all recently about him? I know he's been doing well over in Sweden but whats his future with the Habs? Just wondering if anybody has any info, always thought he would be a solid NHLer someday.

I watched his last game, he was solid but I've noticed his ice time drop a little lately and he's been a -4 over the last 3 SHL games. Overall though he's having a good year so far, we'll have to see if that translates to anything for us or another NHL team. Have been a big fan despite his struggles in North America, so will continue to keep an eye on him.

Always liked Nygren. I always thought at the very least he would become a powerplay specialist in the NHL.

Do we still have his NHL rights? (1-2 more years?).

If he won't play for our Habs...we can trade his rights to another team, no? (good value/trade bait).

''Montreal'' compared Nygren to Mark Streit (from what I remember)...I don't want to trade that kind of potential, but if Nygren is not going to play for us...trading his rights could be a good option.
(as long as a few teams know that he has good potential).

Yes we still have his rights, till June 2017. I don't think it's a case of he won't play for the Habs, I think it's he won't play for our AHL team and perhaps management doesn't want someone that won't commit to playing in the AHL. It's a shame cause if he wasn't injured they were going to call him up and I think he would be on the team now as we could really use that big point shot.

He does remind me a bit of Streit since they both have that big shot and are better on offense then defense. I don't think he's as smart as Streit but he can take the body better. But they can trade his rights at any time, so the better he plays the better it could be for us.

Cheers for info (rights till June 2017).

Not as smart as Streit but has that Streit-esque BIG SHOT, and can take the body better VS Streit... I cannot help but like that!

IF Nygren doesn't play for our AHL team...I really hope we don't lose him for nothing...I'm hoping with a package deal trade he (his rights) can at least be worth a 4th-5th rnd pick...good asset management. Of course, I'm still going to hope he plays for our Habs one day, but...I have no idea if that will ever happen.
Cheers

He has no trade value since scouts actually watch hockey games and see he's not that good.
