Could any of our Swedish contributors comment on Mats Lindgren, who'll be
playing for Edmonton this year?  How good could he be, what type of player
is his, etc.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Curt Lundmark the former coach of Team Sweden said that he
(Mats) were becoming more and more like Peter Forsberg in
his style of hockey. That was the best he could say about
a player, he said.

I'm not from Sweden, and don't quote me on this.  But I understand He had some
back problems last year.  JUst checked Hockey News: " Back Injury kept him out
of Lineup after Swedish season. Strong, good speed, good touch around net."
6' 1"  187 lbs.  All I know is that Winnipeg drafted him in the first round
and then traded him, so they may have seen something they didn't like.

It wasn't that the Jets didn't like Mats Lindgren, it was that the
Jets (or more precisely, John Paddock) REALLY wanted Dave Manson.
Paddock gave up Lindgren, Boris Mironov, the Jets first round pick in
1994 (Edm picked Jason Bonsignore) and Florida's fourth round pick
(Edm picked Adam Copeland) for Dave Manson and St. Louis's sixth round
pick (Wpg picked Chris Kibermanis).

Daryl,
Ouch ! I guess I never looked at the total picture of this trade before.
 I guess it was wishful thinking on my behalf that maybe Lindgren
isn't as good as everyone is saying, because if he is good, then Winnipeg
gave away a ton.
 I was hoping (not that it matters now) that we didn't want Manson that
badly (Although at the time it looked like a good idea).  I hope he can
regain his form under his junior coach Terry Simpson, , otherwise it will
go down as one of the worst trades ever.

I shure think its a bad trade. Lindgren played very well in the swedish
leage. He isnt as good as Peter Forsberg, but I think he has the potential
to be a very good player, indeed.

His nationality!

Paddock was shipping out Europeans left and right...sight unseen in
Lindgren's case, and Glen Sather felt no obligation to tell John
Paddock what a fool he was making of himself.

Lindgren injured his back...herniated disc...in the Swedish playoffs, and
played with it for some time, when he shouldn't have.  Doctors in Edmonton
and LA have both said that it has healed naturally without surgery over
the summer...but we are anxiously awaiting the first hit in preseason to
see if he really is healthy.  He has been skating painfree...and has
looked nifty in the non-contact conditioning camps in Edmonton recently.

I think the nationalities of the left and right shipping was somewhat
coincidental to the players' grit.  Mironov didn't have any, especially for
a defenseman. Olausson didn't.  But we kept Selanne, Zhamnov, Numminen,
traded FOR Korolev, kept Grosek. We traded Dean Kennedy, a good 'ol Western
boy.

But my question to Edmonton fans is:  Was Manson that bad in Edmonton,
i.e. terrible giveaways right on to the tape of opposing players ? or did he
have some good years in Chicago and that was it.

Yes, Dave Manson was absolutely horrible in that regards.  He's big and
mean but his defensive mistakes make really take away any value he has.  
If Mats Lindgren is even a half decent player, Sather will have really
robbed Paddock.

Mats Lindgren played for F?rjestad last year and was the teams best scorer.
Lindgren and Sundin has quite the same style. Lindgren is more a scorer than
a playmaker, perhaps
