I think we all agree the Leafs shouldn’t have Hoglund next year, but I
personally feel that he could play a lot better and is perhaps one of the
underrated players on the team.
– he’s a decent PKer
– he can get some points and had a 29 goal season one year and has had a 50
– he’s a decent 2 way player, Quinn once said that Hoglund was good for Mats
because you took care of a lot of the defensive work.
Hoglund would probably do well on a team like Atlanta, there’s quite a few
talented players on that team that don’t seem like they’d fit anywhere else,
like McEachern for instance. There wouldn’t be the pressure there is in
Toronto so I don’t think Hoglund would have to deal with too many boo’s, so
he wouldn’t have a confidence problem.

I seem to remember saying this before, sarcastically, as part of a
trade, but perhaps he can go to Vancouver and be the veteran grinder
that plays with the Sedin twins… form another Swedish Line.
Hoglund plays RW, the Sedins play C and LW. H***, I’m still chuckling
over this now, but whereas Vancouver wouldn’t have been dumb enough to
give up an asset to trade for Hoglund, perhaps they can sign him for a
reduced price and have him be the veteran “teacher” from their own
native Sweden who plays a natural position outside of their own.

Naa..i don’t know about that, they already have Naslund to teach them
anything they need to know and playing with Hoglund wouldn’t help them any
more. I think that Hoglund Sundin Renberg works simply because they know
each other well, not because they’re Swedish.
