Did The Wings Find Another Diamond

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press (Monday edition) via the Mercury News,

At least one person who has seen him mentions him in the same sentence as star Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist. "There is a real good goalie coach in Sweden, Tomas Magnusson, who has worked both with Tomas Soderstrom and Mikael Tellqvist," Andersson said. "I spoke to him about Larsson and he said he's one of the best guys since Lundqvist that he's seen. He thinks he has a lot of things going for him. He's real smooth side to side, and for a Swedish guy, he's real good with his stick, too."
