Chris Dingman Scouting Report

Dingman of all players today signed with my local team "Södertälje SK" (SWE tier-II). They got demoted this spring but will hopefully make a strong push to get back to the SEL next year.

Anyways can somone fill me in on what to expect of Dingman, please factor in the class of league he'll play in (think skillwise something in betwenn ECHL and AHL), i realise he pretty much sucks in the NHL.

Is he fast, how's his shot, stickhandling etc.


Thanks in advance.

In all seriousness, if the skill level is somewhat of minor leagues, I suppose he might be a decent physical force on the 4th line.

Don't expect much more.

I've never assumed he was fast or anything else, i'm ASKING, a bad player can still be fast etc.

Is he just a physical force or does he bring anything else?

In all seriousness, he's a physical force who mainly is there as a police presence.

4th line, maybe 3rd if the coach has been drinkin'.

I've always liked Dinger.. he's a tough guy. He's an enforcer.

He should make some interesting Swedish movie reviews.. lol

He is a tough guy who commonly gets his *** handed to him.

He's a borderline NHL player. He has no skills whatsoever. He isn't fast at all. He throws a big hit here and there when he actually makes contact with a guy which is rare (he'll hit the boards a few times a game). I'm trying to think of things he does well: he can kill time by holding the puck against the wall, he'll fight but isn't very good at it. I'm glad he found a job, but don't expect much out of him.

He protects the puck well in the corners, but not much else. As far as an enforcer, he hasn't gotten the nickname of the "Constrictor" for nothing. He hugs a lot, then falls down.

Is there an 11 'o clock show? Because the 10:30 show sucks.

Dingman should never have been in the NHL. He is the reason for the "new" NHL. Absolutely nothing going for him other than his size. He is a monster but pound for pound he is about as tough as an old woman.

Definitely don't expect much but I am sure the sponsors will like him. I think he is probably big enough to fit a few extra ads on his jersey.

There are alot of old women out there that would take exception to that.

Well, it's true that he is a goon created by 'old' NHL and basicly useless in the 'new'.

However, this trade might be a good move, at least on his part.

Now he'll get a chance to develop something else, in a slower pace and without the pressure of NHL.

Not that I think he can, but he has got a chance to.

Well it is a good move in that it will get him a job. I dont expect he has a chance to develop into anything other than what he is though. He is too big to be even reasonably fast and its too late to try to find a scoring touch.

I think it's good for him to be in an environment where he isn't expected to be a slugger. To most people he remains 'a hockey player with extensive NHL experience' (not many cares what kind of experience it is).

So I think he might be able to get a role as a solid checking forward.

If he's lucky.
