Translated this for my blog: http://numerartovert...j-saik-and-shl/

 

Most interesting bits:

 

 

Since a few weeks back Adam is back home in Skellefteå, and the question many are asking is where he plays hockey in the fall.

- I had a great talk with the Devils before I left and they’d come back to me in a few weeks.

What are you hoping for when they do come back to you?

- Obviously it’s a one-way deal I want, that’s my goal.

What do you say about the SHL and a possible comeback in Skellefteå AIK?

- Well, that’d been a lot of fun, I’m not closing any doors at all, says Adam Larsson and continues:

- But I’m not going to decide anything until the Devils come back to me. After that we’ll see what happens.

Has SAIK been in touch with you?

- Yeah I’ve been to their office and spoken to them but not more than that.

I think it's worth noting that Adam is from Skellefteå and didn't have to go out of his way to meet SAIK. He probably trains there during the summer too.

Thanks for translating! Nothing to worry about here, he's just saying the "right" thing to Skelleftea.

Meanwhile, in Tedenby Land...appears he's KHL-bound.

http://numerartovert...-future-in-khl/

 

 

On average, he played 10 mins per game in the NHL.

- I didn’t get ice time that you can do much with. But still, it went alright. I wish we’d played a style of hockey that’s a bit more fun. We’re playing pretty defensive hockey, but it is what it is, says Tedenby about the philosophy of coach Peter DeBoer.

- My first year wasn’t like that. Coach Lemaire liked me. After that it’s been so-so.

Tedenby is back home in Sweden and his contract is about to expire. From New Jersey it’s been quiet  since the season ended. Tedenby’s eyes have turned towards the KHL.

He has a contract proposal from the KHL where Atlant hold his rights.

Or maybe he should realize that he was ass on both ends of the ice and when he wasn't committing an defensive gaffe he was just skating circles around the play but never really getting involved.

 

I hope now this can finally put to bed any lingering Devils fans feelings towards him actually being a full time NHLer.  I still hear and see other Devils fans actually thinking he was screwed over by the team and that he is a better forward than what he really is.

He's still relatively young, but it sounds like he hasn't reached the "Maybe it's actually ME" stage yet.  He wasn't very good in the NHL and he wasn't very good in the AHL either (126 GP, 28 G, 38 A, 66 Pts).  It could be that he's just not very good.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

His AHL numbers are what stand out to me. In the NHL he showed some flashes that might make you think that he was a great player who was being misused (or just who hadn't developed his all-around game enough yet). But if he was as good as he seemed (or as we hoped), he should be lighting up the AHL by now. He either lacks the talent or the drive, but he simply doesn't seem like he's going to make it as an NHL player. Too bad, because he does have some skills that are above-average NHL quality or possibly even elite level. Too many holes in his game though.

19 points in 33 games, as well as praise for the coach about his defensive play. He'll be an NHL defenseman.

EDIT: sorry, thought you were talking about Larsson

Can't blame him. You aren't wrong, but I think he said a lot of innocent stuff. He didn't really get a look this season at all, but his AHL numbers said it all. A promising NHL start under Lemaire and absolutely sh!t all under Deboer.

 

Shame about him. He had a skill set that was different than many Devils forwards usually drafted. I remember him wowing with some incredible World Junior goals and plays.

 

Thanks Marshall.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Recall him absolutely undressing a couple defenders on his own in one game. Might have been against Slovakia? My memory isn't that great and that was a few years ago now.

Edit: Yep, it was Slovakia. Here it is:

One reason I was so stoked about him, and really stuck with the hope he was going to start producing, but that ship has sailed, quite literally.

Seeing reports on Twitter that Larsson seems close to signing a deal that would bring him back to the SHL. Any word on that guys?
