The Allsvenskan is to the SEL what the AHL is to the NHL, so since the the SEL is a level down from the NHL, I'd say the Allsvenskan league is a bit of a step down from the AHL. I'm not sure how it would compare to the NCAA. College hockey is just a different beast altogether.

if only crap NHL teams could get relegated, then we'd be set :lol:

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

<_<

So I guess he's going with Michael D. Gillis now. I would have gone with the GM formerly known as Mike Gillis, but I guess this works.

well that is the hope, they are just kids and signing a pro-contract is the first realization of their dream starting to come true. Everyone should hope that a kid can reach his potential and do what he loves to the best of his abilities. Not sure why anyone would debbie downer that but to each their own.

No official word - his ELC starts next season.

I *believe* he is going to sign a ATO with Chicago for the remainder of the season

I remember reading that he out-scored Filip Forsberg.....

Obviously Forsberg is 17 months younger and the Allsvenskan - but not something to ignore

So the plan is for him to finish the season in North America?

Man, if that's true the Wolves are getting some serious reinforcements in the last little while. Jensen, Lain, Price and Blomstrand will make them much tougher to play against. If we can add Tommernes to the mix, it would be awesome.

Just so everyone knows, the Allsvenskan is not exactly a great league. This years top 3 scoring leaders consisted of AHL rejects Evan McGrath, Jared Aulin, and Matt Fornatano.
I'd expect Ludwig to compete for an AHL job next year if he decides to come over, but he's quite a ways away from making a push for the NHL.

The leading scorers in the SEL were Bud Holloway, Carl Soderberg, Joakim Lindstrom

The SEL isn't really a phenomenal league either.
Soderberg is widely regarded as one of the best players in that league, and he's expected to be a 3rd liner for the Bruins when he comes over.

Blomstrand's attributes aren't in his offensive game anyways though. He's a feisty two way checker that can skate like the wind.

It's his hustle that will earn him a spot on the Wolves. And hopefully in time he will develop his offensive game, much like Hansen did.

The point was - the players that are leading the league are older players.

Should we write off Jensen because he didn't lead the league? Same argument for Blomstrand.... these two are 20 years old and JUST starting to play against men....

Thanks for the video.

He seems to be heads-up and moving his feet.

Pretty good size and great skating; probably coachable too.

Can't wait to see what the AHL does for him.

The Hansen comparability seems well-founded.

I said he would compete for an AHL job, how is that writing him off? Especially since, as you said, he is just 20 years old.
I was just stating the Allsvenskan wasn't exactly a quality league, and if run-of-the-mill AHL talent like Matt Fornataro can dominate, then that proves that.
