    Man if he could become anything close to Pastrnak (dreaming I know). One thing I have noticed about Czech players is that they typically seem to play with passion. I remember watching the Czech team play Canada in the Olympics and they played an edgy and aggressive game. No backing down or shying away from contact.

    Yup me too.
  3. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    My point was it wouldn't be that surprising if you look at what he has actually accomplished at his age in a high level men's league compared to 19 year old rookies coming out of junior hockey playing against 17 and 18 year olds.
  4. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Usually I would agree, but he isn't a "rookie" in the sense of a typical 19 or 20 year old coming out of the CHL. He has basically been playing at the same level as the AHL in a men's league (some would argue higher level from a skill perspective but maybe not a physicality perspective) and was the league leading scorer and probably best offensive player. He turned 19 after the beginning of the season. He is only going to get better. I think this kid may really surprise some people especially if he has the right line mate (s) and opportunity like 1st unit PP.

    This plus he is a natural Center. The Canucks need some depth at the Center position and he plays a 2 way game. Look how he excelled on a decent team given an opportunity to perform. Yes he is 21 playing in the CHL but based on his skating and size I think he has some upside. He may need to percolate for a couple of years in the A.

    If the current trend continues we will always have an abundance of bottom tier borderline defensemen, like all the other teams in the NHL. If he is the best of the bottom then bring him on.
  7. Kristoffer Gunnarsson | D

    We have too many 6, 7, 8, 9 D. And yes you can have too many especially when you are trying to draft and develop players with more upside.
  8. Kristoffer Gunnarsson | D

    \we need more 6/7 D IMO. Can never have too many, oh wait.........
  9. Zack MacEwen | C/RW

    Has there been any news on how long MacEwen is out? Is it a concussion?

    As the saying goes it takes a village to raise a child. I believe it takes a "team" to raise the Cup. The more players on a team that have leadership qualities the better. As long as they don't all want to be "The Leader." I say let the Captaincy work itself out over time. It isn't something that should be forced or managed.

    Can he get out of (or Canucks buy out) his Czech League contract and sign with the Canucks / Comets for next year?
  12. Boucher is out for the season with a broken hand. I am hoping Gadjovich will get the same opportunity once his OHL season is over.
  13. Pettersen has the best + / - on the team (+27). By a fair margin over most of the other players. Dahlen has fourth best + / - on his team (+11). The best on the team is +17.
  14. From a draft lottery percentage perspective sure. (We have seen that one bite us) But what about the team dynamic and how the young players view the "leaders" who continue to get special treatment and have become a defensive liability while their coach rides their arse for the same reason, or less. Does that not eventually make you lose a little respect for the leaders who get special treatment and make you want to tune out a coach who is using a double standard? I get that it's the Sedins but at some point you have to be able to walk the talk to maintain respect on the ice. I fear the Sedin's will be even slower next year.
  15. I agree plus minus is somewhat flawed but it can be an indicator specifically when compared to team mates that get less o zone starts and opportunity.
