    Great post, Richard; I agree with you completely. Samuelsson is the best off-season pickup the Canucks made, and both Detroit and Team Sweden wish to hell they had the guy on their roster.

    A lot of people thought he’d be a shoe-in to play with the Sedins, but this guy, like Burrows, had to WORK his way onto the top line. It’s just too bad that Demitra’s national pride hasn’t translated into many points since he returned from his red-hot Olympics.

    Samuelsson, like Naslund and Sundin before him, is a huge inspiration to Henrik & Daniel – I honestly think H’s being in a position to sprint for the Art Ross trophy is as much due to these three Swedish teammates has it is to his steady play.

    Someone should fins a way to “snub” him every year.

    “No. You cannot get a discount on meatballs here at the Ikea cafeteria just because you’re Swedish” during the summer could translate into a 50 goal season.
