    What’s with the slew of signings? Are these all in normal timing and I’m just not used to the Rangers having so many draft picks that need to be signed?

    The signings make sense. Junior kids signing before their rights expire (Skinner) or they enter the last 12 months (Schneider, Cuylle). Henriksson signing makes sense with the Rangers not being happy with his development. They feel he can develop better in Hartford.

    Were you not expecting him to get a contract?

    Idk who handles Swedish scouting, but outside of Lundkvist it feels like some sketchy picks. They love giants and guys who are slight.

    Not this soon. He hasn't proven much yet, but certainly hasn't received the ice time with Frolunda. Missing this past WJC with covid was unfortunate as well. I think the Rangers are ready to get him over here to Hartford where they can control his development.

    Kjellberg is an underrated pick out of Sweden. He plays in NA now, but was drafted out of Sweden

    This is one of the reasons they signed him.

    I wasn't expecting him to get a contract now. The Rangers held his rights until June 1, 2023. I was expecting them to give him at least one more year in Sweden before making a decision.

    I've obviously been down in this guy basically since day one, but have always maintained it's too early to write him off. Let's see what he can do. I'm not convinced he's in North America next year; I think the Rangers probably try to find a good situation for him and loan him for another season.

    The first half of the season he was a fixture on the top line for Frolunda with Lundqvist and Friberg and played 13-15 minutes per night or more. He wasn't getting prime PP time but he was getting very good minutes, especially considering he was 19. It wasn't until the second half of the season that his TOI started to dip as his production never materialized, and then towards the end he was getting scratched. But, the minutes absolutely were there for him, he just couldn't do anything with them.

    EDIT: I didn't mean to quote your post about Kjellberg, rather the one about why the Rangers signed Henriksson (I agree they wanted more control, disagree that he didn't get minutes). But, since I did quote it, who says Kjellberg is underrated? :laugh:

    My view:
    Why should his unlucky season matter more, than the performances that got him drafted?
    Judging guys, before they complete their ELC is, IMHO, jumping to conclusions.
    Like the posters, of other teams, evaluating Laf and Kakk, by the counting stats of their first 50 or 100 games.
    NYR didnt draft them for what they'll do in years D+3
    Karl will have a fair and full opportunity to establish his career.
    Glad their takin' care of biz.
    Paju and Nils too, soon.

    has he grown at all?

    might be a nice fit tbh. He seems like a glue guy

    Yeah, I expect Lundkvist, Pajuniemi and Edström to sign soon. I know Edström is a surprise name for a contract this summer but they really like him.

    The conversations between the Rangers and Edström have been more frequent this year than in his D+1 which is a good sign.

    Curious, outside of missing the WJC, what was unlucky about this season for Henriksson? I mean I'm fully on board with the "let's be patient" approach with him, but I'm not sure how the season was unlucky.

    The timing is odd, unless they felt Henriksson needed the positive vibes or oversight.

    He suffered an injury early on, then battled COVID (leading to him missing the WJC). After that he wasn't really the same but that was also because the minutes weren't there anymore. Others stepped up in his absence, including Elmer Söderblom.

    I spoke to Henriksson a few times this season and what I can say is that him signing now is more about the Rangers wanting to have him in the system. Hartford is purely a team for development purposes, where he can grow into his role, whereas with the Indians it was about winning, and near the end about avoiding not missing the play offs altogether. They had a very up-and-down season and Henriksson wasn't the answer to their problems. Fair enough, but from that POV I can understand the Rangers pulling the trigger now

    IDK, other than COVID, none of that really strikes me as bad luck. He had many chances to solidify his spot in the lineup even before the COVID, but never did anything with it. Even when he'd get bounced and they'd put Nassen in his spot, he'd get his lineup spot back within a game or two. But again, he couldn't do anything with it.

    If he was contributing offensively to start the year, before the COVID, maybe I'd feel differently. But he was an offensive black hole basically from day one. The rest of his game got a bit better, but he was dropped in the lineup because his stick is where offense went to die.
