Right, so Mattias is currently 30th overall in the Swedish elite league.

He is also 20 years old, and unsigned by any NHL team, and...

He's big (6'1), so we don't have to have that arguement...and he's...

A CENTER....

So...correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't these like...Mikael Backlund numbers, except, better?

Not too shaby! I say give him a 2 way for 2 years. He looks better then Jones for the 4th and possibly maybe 3rd line role.

Based on... his points?

a 4th liner is likely not on the line to score. awesome if he can. but guys who's only asset is points are generally regarded as top 6 or bust type players. (i do not know if he is that type or not).

Nice stats, (I know nothing else about him beyond your link). It would be nice if the flames would take a good look at him and decide if his game would transfer to the NHL.

I was thinkin more like a two-way signing, and then evaluate further in the AHL myself (best case scenario), but the stats seem to be what one would expect of a top first-round pick.

What little I've read on him, he was rated as a 7th-round longshot in the 2012 entry draft by central scouting, having come out of nowhere in 2011, producing an unusual number of points in a lower division.

Now, he's taken another leap, having translated those points to the Swedish Elite League in 2013.

My question is, can we just sign someone like this? Or do they need to be drafted?

Wish I knew more about him...unusual numbers for an undrafted center which apparently came from nowhere.

I don't really know enough about him... but from what i do know, i wouldn't waste the contract. Much rather prefer that flexibility to make some moves come the trade deadline.

Best case scenario is sign him to an AHL contract. See what he does in NA before committing 1 of our few remaining (I believe we're down to 1) NHL contracts.

Hmm...

So, Blake Comeau is our first-line center now.

I believe that warrants a bump


p.s...no idea how we've managed to burn through all but one of our contracts, but that problem can easily be remedied by buying players out. relatively cheap to do, if they're AHLers.
