Frolunda 5: Hjalmarsson

Being that Frolunda is Hanks old team i thought it was a little relavant.

This guy Simon Hjalmarsson was compared to two Rangers in this latest NHL feature.

Quote:
some have compared his offensive skill package to that of Kristian Huselius or a more goal-scoring minded Michael Nylander.
Goal-scoring??!

Quote:
He has a tremendous work ethic. Its hard to take the puck from Simon and he protects the puck very well. He has a humble, laid back attitude off the ice, and a real competitive, winning attitude on the ice. To compare his game to someboby is hard, since his game has so many faces in a positive way. But I would say if you mix Michael Nylander and Sean Avery you will have Hjalmarsson.”

Think the Rangers might nab one of these 5 or Hjalmarsson if he slips into the second round?

Hjalmarsson won't make it to the 2nd round. I'd consider him at #17, I really think he's a top player in this draft.

Btw, I already posted this article in the NYR Draft thread.

yes, but to compare a kid looking to be drafted in the mid to late 1st or early 2nd round to sid is nuts...

maybe not you, but he's only 17 and he could be really good. we'll never know until we give him a try.

Sid is top 5 in the NHL at what, 19?

yeah, i know this kid is 17, but he won't be as good as sid in 2 years.

i think you are really underestimating how special of a player Sid is. I have been watching hockey for a long time, and you rarely see a player at his level, never mind so young.

I know, but we havn't seen what this guy can do. He can be a hockey protegy for all we know. we have to give him a chance.

actually, if he was a hockey prodigy he would have been known about..hence sid was projected #1 for 3 years before the draft. actually would have went first in any draft the year or year before..and yes over AO and Malkin. I mean look at it like this, espo was a protegy expected to go frist, which lasted what, for 6 months?

not everyone can be as good as gretzky, or mario....it isn't just developing into a good player...it is god given talent.

mario? whatever. this could be one of those undiscovered talents. i'm not saying he's going to be Grezkey, but theres like a 1 in 80million chance. he could be that one.

anybody could be that one, but chances are that one would be drafted in the top 3 positions.

really, i think you just don't realize how amazing it is for Sid to be doing what Sid is doing. It is very rare. And honestly, the ? next to Mario makes me believe you haven't seen enough of him before he was 35 to understand his dominance.

Mario >> Jagr in their primes......luckily, Jagr's prime has lasted much longer

I used to think like that when I was 14 too

On that note, my band's album comes out this summer and even though we're in our 30's, all have day jobs, and far from virtuoso's I can't wait until we're signed to a 7 record deal and become the best band since the Beatles

just so you know, we aren't trying to rip on you, but if bluenote is right and you are 14, take it from some people who have watched hockey longer than you have been alive. another gretzky is about one in a 100 billion.....not 80 million. and i am not saying sid will have that career...but he is on his way already

Yup, I'm still waiting for the call to replace Bob Stinson in the Replacements reunion. What band wouldn't want a 41-year-old guitar player, who's best years are behind him, and just came off a bout of bursitis in his elbow...IT COULD HAPPEN!!!!
