    I'm making assumptions, just like when you said Morrison made a trip or two.

    Would it make sense for Hunter to be spending a bunch of time in Europe when they have dedicated European scouts on staff?

    I doubt he will make it this year, but for next year's tournament he should have a good chance (assuming he continues to develop & stays healthy).

    You probably shouldn't admit to never watching him, and then looking at his stats without knowing his situation, to downplay him.

    Stat watching is great and all, but need some context. I truly believe, that if he was in the CHL, he would average a PPG, he got the talent just his team is managed by a bunch of clarksons :shakehead:help:

    I'm pretty sure he was just asking for clarification
    If not, I'd like clarification on why he's struggling so much from someone who watches him play. thanks

    He is been put in a situation to fail. In the SHL he plays as an extra Dman (approx 8min/game)

    He is a skill player playing with checkers, grinders and plugs

    I wish either they keep him with the U20 team or ship him to another team (or marlies)

    Relax... why do you assume he is downplaying him? How do you know the tone in which he wrote that line?

    I've been on this board a long time, and how often people try to spin words, so they can be implied in a bad fashion is getting just plain annoying.

    why do some posters assume that everyone has the time in their life to spend rereading, rewriting, then proofreading every post....concerned on whether it is interpreted the right way by everyone who reads it....

    I read that post like this:

    Can anyone that has seen him play, provide some insight, because his stats don't look very promising.

    What's so bad about that?

    It's not a big deal. I just found it funny how he asked if anyone has seen him (which assumes he hasn't, so he wouldn't know what Jesper's situation is) and then proceeds to box score watch, and write a useless "yikes" again not knowing any context to his situation as Highlander pointed out.

    The way the poster wrote it, comes of humorous and fun to me... And as you mentioned, he even admits to never seeing him play. Also why is it bad that he says yikes? His stats suck... Hence the reason he's asking for an opinion on his play by someone whose watched him play... He wants to know if his stats reflect his on ice play.

    I see it all the time on the boards....especially with prospects.

    Good post. Getting more than a little annoying frankly.

    was an 18 year old d-man playing in SHL but has now moved to the MODO Hockey J20 SuperElit. Good read below on him :laugh::laugh:

    "Possible first round sleeper who has come out of nowhere with eye-popping skating, skills and swashbuckling offensive skills. An aggressive offensive player you will jump up in pinches and fake defenders to him and place the puck to an opponent or simply freeze the defender and blow on by. Incredibly cool and confident, with legs and moves that sometimes don’t work, but cause defenders to think about what they might encounter on the next touch. He has elusive puck control that isn’t going to ever stay back if he has an inkling he can make a play. His feet let him get back when the puck is turned over in transition. A bold gunslinger who needs to get stronger, bigger and continue to progress. Displays Karlsson-like attributes and seems on a quick developmental track to the first round if there is a team looking willing to take the chance to watch him progress"

    I streamed one of the Sweden games this summer in the 4 nations tourney vs. Russia. He was terrible in that game. On for 3 goals I believe. Didn't see much ice in the 3rd period. One game. He had offensive flair and desire but terrible defensive skills. One game.

    Lindgren was loaned to Björklöven of the Allsvenskan, apparently he will dress for their game today. Hopefully this will give him an opportunity to get some decent ice time for his development, because 8-10 mins a game really isn't enough.

    They must have seen something in his game. These picks are usually safe because of our European scout.

    He's played a handful of games with Bjorkloven, he's got a couple points.

    Lindgren is still incredibly young at 18 years old but he's already too good for the U20 league.

    Swedish fans expect him to be on the WJC team next December.

    The Leafs made the Stralman trade because they needed a second round pick, to complete a deal with Boston (might have been Chicago)/

    How can anyone question doubt Burke's hockey mind? He kept on telling Leaf fans that he knew more than anyone, anywhere, anytime.;)

    IIRC it was our pick that we had traded earlier, which we had to get back in order to present the threat of an offer sheet when trying to trade for Kessel.

    He is still 18 years old. He's a prospect you pick and stash for a few years before bringing him over to the AHL.

    He played 30 games in the professional leagues in Sweden and the rest of it with the U20 team. Lindgren played a couple playoff games with the junior club (MODO) but didn't put up any points.

    You can expect him to spend the vast majority of next season with the SHL club and he will almost certainly make the Swedish team for the WJC.

    He might stay with Modo and play in the allsvenskan, seeing how they got relegated yesterday.
