In Topic: Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

I love how Sammy doesn't hesitate to speak his mind.   :lol:


On what he's looking forward to playing in Sweden:


I would particularly like to play hockey and not just dump the puck. Then it happens so clear that it is in (a 2-1 game - fine) but otherwise, I would like to pass the puck and get a fun game.

Nill, you sly dog.


That was to the AHL team, in January.

I would pass on Setoguchi. Hate that guy, probably the biggest diver I've ever seen.


Penner I also don't see working out too well on the wings. Big, slow, lazy.... We have enough Franzens.


Not to shoot down your suggestions on these players lol, I would like to see some fresh blood on the team especially via tryout. 


Penner is such a weird one.  He was hot and cold in LA, but then seemed rejuvenated with the Ducks and was playing on the first line.  So naturally they trade him to Washington for a 4th round pick?


With the Ducks he had 32 points in 49 games and was a +22.  I'm a little leery of him though too because of his hot and cold nature.  I'd be afraid for whatever reason he'd be a bust in Detroit.  When motivated he's still a good player though.

As fun as it is to bash on Sammy, I'll never forget him for starting and finishing this play:



Also the two opening goals in Game 1 of the 2008 Finals against the Pens.


And the hundreds of logo shots.




All shin pad assassin jokes aside, Sammy was a bargain during his first stay here in Detroit.   He had good size, was irritating to play against, and put up good numbers for his salary. 


It's just unfortunate that Holland keeps repeating the mistake of bringing back former players, but I hold no ill will for Sammy.

I trust the magical ref gif :)


No matter how many times I watch that one, I still can't figure out a plausible theory on how the ref appears like that.
