  1. Any one know what is wrong w/ Stalberg??? He was tearing up Sweden league, but only has played 1st 11 games of year.

    Injury? Serious? hope it’s not a knee!

  2. To answer my own ???
    Stalberg moved to KHL– and is really not scoring.

    Interesting- excelling in Sweden, Nothing in Russia. Must be a big difference in style of play and talent level between 2 leagues!

  3. Wall,
    While he hasn’t been dominate or anything, he is still a +5 in only 8 games played. (3 points, 0 goals.) I mean thats still decently productive. Also, I dont know what his typical line is. If he is skating on a 3rd or 4th line, 3 assists and a +5 looks pretty good.

    Now all that said, he was a PPG player in sweden, so he showed he can be that kinda player.
