I am not sure it would be fair to question the integrity of all of Swedish journalism, since I’m sure some of it is actually grounded in truth.
But we are now batting .000 when citing Swedish reports. First it was the Rangers’ agreeing to a new lucrative contract with Henrik Lundqvist shortly after the season. Now it’s yesterday’s report that the Rangers being close to a deal with Michael Nylander.
Maybe the Swedes aren’t misinformed as much as they are just hopelessly optimistic.
Either way, it now doesn’t sound like the Rangers are as close with Nylander as we thought. I spoke to his agent Mike Gillis a few minutes ago and the agent didn’t offer up much. Either it’s me, or there’s nothing new to report.
We shall see….
