      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] Coyotes Sign Samuelsson

Recommended Posts

The Phoenix Coyotes have signed forward Henrik Samuelsson, their first-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, to a three-year entry-level contract, the terms of which were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Samuelsson has posted 32 goals and 79 points in 67 games this season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. He currently ranks third on the team in goals and points.

The 19-year-old native of Scottsdale, Arizona finished the 2011-12 season with Edmonton, recording seven goals and 23 points in 28 games with the Oil Kings after recording two assists in 15 games with Modo Hockey Ornskoldsvik (Swedish Elite League).

Samuelsson was originally drafted by the Coyotes with the 27th pick in 2012.

I wanted him instead of Gaunce. He also seemed like the prototypical AV type player. Chippy grinder, right wing. Probably a better fit on the 3rd line than Hansen will be.

This was a kid I really wanted the Canuck to get. If he's anything like his dad he'll be making friends real quick.

I wanted him too but gaunce was by far the better pick IMO. We have that type of player but better in kassian.

We could've had him but with Gaunce down that low, any GM would take the best player available.. Oh well

I was hoping for Samuelsson as well but I was very happy with Gaunce. I thought for sure he would've been taken at least before the 23rd pick.

Although I would have liked Samuelsson as well, Gaunce was the better pick and we need centremen.

Same, I didn't mind Sammuelsson. But Gaunce fell and was a great pickup.

And yeah, they aren't similar players rly IMO, but Henrik brings some of the same qualities, although Zack is much better in every area IMO,

Yeah that's what I meant. Both big rugged right wingers but zack is just overall more skilled.

I watched henrik live a couple times when Edmonton came to play the cougars. I really liked him but I got the sense he has a maximum ceiling of a Torres type player but bigger.
