Looks like the Wings signed him per CapGeek. Anyone know what the plan is for him the next couple years?

Next season he'll be in the SEL, the season after that if he bulks up just a bit more and improves his skating slightly, he should be in GRap with Pulu and Jarnkrok.

Good to hear about his signing. He has great hockey sense and vision but he just need to hit the gym and improve his shot.

One Rafalski retires, another Rafalski is signed.

Take a big step this year Adam, I want to see you on the second PP in four years in Detroit.

He could be the next Rafalski or the next Lebda, depending on how he develops. I think he will get a shot at the NHL in 3-4 years.

I've seen him alot here in Sweden. I'd say he's more like Kronwall in his style. He's way more physical then Rafalski. Great skater both with puck and

without puck. AND he likes the big open ice hits.

In terms of how he'll be in the NHL I'm not sure we'll see that from him all that much if he makes it. That style of play can have a tremendous amount of wear and tear that is wayyyy more significant in the NHL as opposed to the Elitserien.

I'm hoping he's a little bit like Tobias Enstrom.

That is probably as close as you can get. Almqvist might be a bit more aggressive though. He know's when to "explode" and not.
