      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Signing] Kristian Huselius signs with AIK

Recommended Posts

Interesting. he's a free agent right now, and he was a fairly good player in his prime (almost a PPG), but that injury with the jackets might have ended his career. we'll see how he does.

2 major surgeries in less than a year in his mid-30s ... Not a chance he's coming back to the NHL ...

That said, I would've been all over Huselius 2 years ago. Great player in his prime.

Huselius has excellent on-ice vision and has incredible stickhandling skills. He is a capable skater, a great playmaker and a good sniper as well. On the downside Huselius must still become stronger physically and be less streaky.

Huselius in his prime is exactly the type of playmaker that Kesler could use on his wing. Wonder if he's still "got it".

This signing more or less helps the team, and is more of a loss to Jensen. Having him around means reduced ice time. Sucks.

Huselius >> Raymond

I don't say he is the answer, but he is literally zero risk and will come with a low cap hit due to his previous injury status. Look at what else is available on the UFA market for a top 6 forward.... not much. Unless we get one in return for Luongo (doubtful), then he is a fine choice to try out. We need to carry an extra solid veteran or two in a condensed season like this (if it happens) to account for injuries and spell other guys off for rests.

He is also a pure playmaker who (if healthy enough) probably has the best chance of anyone available of somehow turning Kesler and Booth into an actual useful line.

He could be signed for $2 million on a 1yr contract, even less if you are unable to get rid of his cap hit if you waive him under the new rules.
