Martin Thornberg

Flames have shown some interest in the young fellow. Perhaps some of our Swedish brethren could fill us in on his game.

I do not know anything about Martin Thornberg, but I hope Sutter can sign him. He sounds like the type of player Calgary is looking for and may the be one of the pieces that Calgary is looking for to improve their club.

I guess he could be described as kind of a powerforward in the SEL. Hardworking player but I'm not sure what kind of success he'd have in the NHL. I don't know if he's better than Mathias Johansson was when he went over to try his luck in Calgary.

he's a pretty good player. hardworking with some scoring upside. a lot of that scoring comes from playing with a smart two way center (Johan Davidsson in HV71 and I think he has played a lot with Jörgen Jönsson in Tre Kronor). I don't think he can transfer he's game to the NHL, maybe in a team like Detroit or Dallas but not in Calgary...

I'm more interested in Jonas Frögren (http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=97), he had a pretty good World Championship and could be a good 3rd pair defensive d-man (with Giordano maybe?)

Power forward huh? I wonder how comfortable he would be standing in front of the goalie on the power play ala Holmstrom.

Thörnberg's got a good shot, skates a ton and generally just plays hard. He has a tendency to dive quite a bit, though.

I'm not familiar with Martin Thornberg, but he sounds like a pretty solid player.

My biggest question is the kind of contract he would want. One-way? Two-way? One Year? Two years?

Thing is, Thörnberg has a contract with HV71 to 2010/11. Not sure if there's a NHL clause in that contract. But since there's no transfer agreement between the NHL and the SEL he can't be signed as far as I know.

Two-way for one year is all he can get because of age and the fact that it would be an entry-level contract.

I think Thörnbergs contract may have been signed at a time when there was a transfer agreement between SEL and NHL and he can therefore leave for NHL even though he's tied up with HV71 until 10/11. Not sure about this though

No he can not be signed, neither can Frögren.
