    The kid is a stud, clearly his game is built for the playoffs. You could see that throughout the regular season.

    will fans/the team ever be able to forgive him if he comes back to the team?

    In his short time, he's shown the occasional glimpse that he can be a very productive player. not enough obviously. But the tools might be there to be a strong bottom 6 player. Obviously you want more from that high of a draft pick but where he was picked is in the past.

    If he reports to the team, works for every minute of ice time, and works to become a productive member of the team, I say give him a shot

    If he gets a shot here and performs well, yes fans will forget it and move on.

    score a playoff goal, and boom.


    but I doubt he would see time. This is an insurance move that may also help the relationship long-term. If they all agree, he can come over for a month or 2 during the playoffs and go back to the SHL to start the season there. Go from there.

    I agree.

    I’m honestly still skeptical of him coming back this year. I don’t think it should or needs to happen this season.
    And if he does come over, I think he’s basically a taxi squad/roster extra type player.

    Luckily for him, unless things get drastically better in the coming months, he won't have to worry about being boo'd by fans lol.

    I think you have to be a legitimate prospect to earn the black ace moniker!

    Post has learned that Lias Andersson has decided to remain in Sweden. Rangers had talked to him about joining team for 2020 training camp, but seventh-overall from 2017 opted against accepting invite...So it ends until there's a trade...

    Andersson would play in Sweden next season if not traded, and perhaps even if he is dealt, depending on timing. But he won't be back with Rangers.
