    To save others who don't follow European hockey the trouble: 22 years old, a bit on the small side at 5'11" 180lbs, led SHL defensemen in scoring last year.

    Edited my first post where I said they have signed Pilut. That was sloppy of me. The article said they have an agreement, not that the contract is signed. My apologies.

    This is the important part of the article (my translation):

    The rest is mostly background, that he is currently representing the Swedish National Team, age and numbers which I think you guys can figure out without translation. What's interesting is that he led HV71 in points and that he was also the top point scoring defenseman in the SHL. Basically what tsujijumoto said. :)

    Is he our Antipin for next year? Or a friend for Dahlin?

    The Dahlin friend is already signed. Olofsson. So this is probably more of a press box guy. ;)
    But speaking of Antipin - does signing Pilut have any impact on his tenure as a Sabre?

    As long as hes an upgrade over Antipin and Bealieu Im cool. Of course lets see if this is formalized first or just a rumour. When can we sign him if we are indeed?

    I think the language barrier was a huge hurdle for Antipin. If this kid can speak decent English, he's already a step up. Or maybe we can stumble into a fellow Swede or two to help him out. ;)

    I think Antipin was probably gone either way. Personally.

    He’s a lefty, so regardless of what he did on the wide ice he will be shoved into LD here

    If this signing happens. I think it’s getting safer to say they won’t rule out the smaller dmen on draft day. Smurfs will rule the world.

    This is the kid whose dad was born in the U.S. English is not a problem for him. I would look at the Leafs who signed Borgman and the other Swedish dman last year. Both spent some time with the Leafs but most of their time in the AHL developing. Probably a similar scenario if he signs with Buffalo.

    His dad is from Detroit, and as English is taught in Swedish school from a young age, so I'm pretty sure he can talk a bit more than Antipin :D

    Excellent. Salming Trophy as best SHL defenseman, is more than just a one-way offensive guy though he has those skills. I'm very pleased with this if it is indeed happening.

    I have an issue with this when I look at the construction of Tampa and Winnipeg.

    Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the possible. Add as much talent and skating as we can. I’d love for it to all be big guys but .....

    This makes him look like he just got his own sitcom on Fox.
