Swedish Oil is breaking news daily. The latest scoop has Johan Motin heading to the SEL. There’s a great quote, I would post it here but the entire post is worth quoting so it’s a must-read.
We talked about this in August and more recently here and the fact that Motin was falling well down the depth chart and likely to be in Stockton. Motin was drafted 103rd overall and did make the NHL for 1 game, so I hesitate to grade him as a draft fail. He did not emerge as a legit NHL option during his entry level deal, so that makes him a draft miss at the very least.
Among Stu MacGregor selections, Motin joins Troy Hesketh and Jordan Bendfeld as clear miss selections. The 2008 draft–MBS’ first one–still has Eberle, Hartikainen and Cornet pushing.
