Another Swede Headed To The Wings?

from Bob Duff of Duffer’s Dabbles at the Windsor Star,

There’s speculation in NHL circles that Michigan senior co-captain Carl Hagelin, who notched a pair of goals Saturday as the Wolverines blanked the Michigan State Spartans 5-0 in the Big Chill outdoor NCAA hockey game at Michigan Stadium, could be headed for the Detroit Red Wings.

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.

continued with a few more hockey notes…

I can’t see the Rangers NOT signing Hagelin.  He’s been talked about quite a bit by management.  Doesn’t appear to be an afterthought at all.

Looks like baseless speculation, to me.

I agree, there’s a lot of What Ifs and speculation into this.

Would it surprise me entirely that the Rangers might pass on Hagelin?  I guess not.  Nothing they do surprises me anymore.  Oh Glen Sather, you crack me up…

But even then, that doesn’t mean he’s Detroit-bound or something…

It’s like a children’s nursery rhyme—All good Swedes go to the Red Wings. It sounds better in the original Swedish.
