They resigned Persson to another year. He's a 24 yr old, right shot, puck moving, offensive dman. He's got 22 pts in 35 games in the Swedish hockey league. I have to assume he will be coming over next season.

Worth a shot, minimal cap space going forward and could provide what we’ve lacked on the back end. 1M for next season, is RFA at season’s end.

Led his team in D scoring in 2017-18, his rookie season, and is leading them again this season.

But who, signed him? Gretz?!

That’s a genius move. Cue building confidence music, so that fans are okay when he becomes FT GM.



2015/2016 - This Kool-Aid tastes like McDavid flavoured Drain-O.
2016/2017 - This Kool-Aid is starting to taste like juice.
2017/2018 - I'm drinking this Kool-Aid, in hopes that it's Drain-O.
2018/2019 - Another round of Drain-O, good sir!

Listening to Stauffer today, MacT is ‘in charge’ of European scouting... cue the MacT for GM push from Bobby Nicks

Why would MacT, living in Edmonton, be in charge of European scouting? Why not get a European in Europe to be that guy. We do know the team has Skype...

Ha. Why can't he just watch games and talk to prospects over the internet? Think of all the money saved of air travel, hotels, meals, and french red wine!



This is fine.

Haha...maybe it's all completely analytic based! Could save him even watching the games!

If he lights up the AHL next year, it was Gretz and/or MacT. If he fails, it was Chia.

AHL? You know if he comes over he’s got that 3RD spot locked up, with only Lars and Bouch ahead of him icon_wink

To me it's a no brainer signing in that there is no risk. Lots of really good dmen come from the Swedish league. This guy is supposedly one of their better ones offensively. Why not?

Oh for sure. He’s appatently received high praise in scouting reports of late and lots of chatter expecting him to come over to NA before the end of the season. His club team plays their final regular season game March 14, though his team is currently in 9th and looking at a play in for the final playoff spot.

To me, it's no different than every year teams falling all over themselves to sign these college free agents. He's playing pro hockey in a good league against men and doing well vs playing against a bunch of kids. I don't know if he actually makes it but worth a shot.

This is the kind of signing that no one cares about in any but the hot bed markets like Edmonton. He's got a chance at being an NHLer...and it's a reasonable gamble with little risk. But it's not much of a story.

But. But. He’s playing on the same team that the Canucks ‘saviour’ Pettersson played on!

It's like how the sportswriters like to compare every Swedish defenceman coming in to the league as possibly another Nick Lidstrom...

So you're telling me Lars and Klefbom AREN'T on the same level as Lidstrom?

I've been bamboozled
