Interesting...

Currently the property of the New York Rangers, who selected the 5-11, 176-pound left-winger from Sodertalje, Sweden with the 168th pick of the 2007 National Hockey League entry draft, word around the NHL is that the Rangers won't be signing Hagelin, who would then become a free agent Aug. 15, 2011. I wouldn't be surprised to see Detroit sign him, said one NHL scout at Saturday's game.

The NHL scout is just driving his price up I think.

As Lionel Hutz would say: "Yes, but hearsay and conjecture are kinds of evidence..."

I hear nothing concrete in that statement. This probably won't happen.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

no way this guy signs here and accepts assignment to AHL. i can't see Babcock accepting another one-way project like Leino. I'd rather see the Wings give our drafted youngsters a shot at a roster spot.

Why would the Rangers not want him, if he is so good?
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Rangers are not seeing eye to eye with him and his agent it seems.

In that sense, how significant is all that drama and would the Wings want a character like his?

I don't really want to sign any of these 'SUPERSTARS'. Leino was bad enough as a Red Wing. And anyone else remember Brunstrom (sp?) Yea, no thanks.

Please Please Please! More Swedes! This kid would have a perfect fit in the Detroit organization, no doubt about that.

I'm more in favor of continuing to cultivate loyalty from within our own team. Unless he says yest to two years in the AHL (with a chance here and there to play in the NHL when injuries strike) he isn't a good signing.

Ville Leino is a good precedent in this case... though I am aware that Hagelin may be nothing like him.

He's a small Swede, of course a scout would say this.

Plus, it seems a lot of people in here are just reading "Swedish Star" and don't know he's only 22 and playing college hockey, he's not over in Europe. It is nowhere near the same situation as Leino.

I don't know anything about him other than the headline says "Swedish Star". And we all know how Detroit love talented Swedes. But if he's got an attitude/entitlement problem, then pass. Don't need another Leino -type situation.

Ok a couple things. First I don't know why the Rangers aren't planning on signing him but I doubt he has character issues considering he could have already turned pro but chose to go back to school and finish his degree, plus he is the co-captain of Michigan's team. Second he is not a one way player, he is probably the best defensive forward in the CCHA (yes better than Riley Sheahan). Hagelin would be a great pick up.

I honestly just think people read the title and didn't even bother to see he was in college.
