    Nah the secret is the Canucks are leveraging Fortnite gametime to get the most out of Petty.

    [PGT] Colorado Avalanche at Vancouver Canucks | Nov. 02, 2018

    SHL Playoffs 13 Games 10 Goals 19 Points. Canucks 9 Games 9 Goals 15 Points. When Pettersson was drafted he hadn’t discovered his elite slap shot. Pettersson reached franchise level when he discovered that. He reached Generaltional level during the SHL playoffs and he hasn’t looked back. If he stays healthy he will distinguish himself as the best all round talent in the game. He might not score points like McDavid, he doesn’t have McDavid’s speed but Pettersson has a level of vision and creativity McDavid doesn’t possess. The combination of his offensive and defensive game is unique in the league. He won every trophy last year in the SHL, and if there had been a trophy like the Selke in the SHL he would have won that too. He will separate himself as arguable the best (all round) talent in the NHL by Christmas. Bold prediction

    I think people totally underestimate Pettersson’s accomplishments in Sweden. McDavid is a faster skater sure, but he doesn’t have Pettersson’s array of shots or his creativity. Generational players are identified early in the CHL. Players that dominate against their peers like Connors and Crosby. But what about an 18 year old that Dominates men 10 years older than him? Talent is hard to gage in Europe. Especially when there’s no comparable to measure by. EP breaks records that are decades old and not only wins the scoring title of the regular season as a 19 year old but breaks the Matrix in the Playoffs going into Cheat Mode, like a broken video game and breaks that record too. EP wins every award there is, but going beyond that if there had been an award in the SHL for best defence forward (like the NHL’s Selke)... he would have won THAT TOO. There is no Centre currently in the league that has the combination of offensive and defensive instincts that EP currently possesses. His skill set is unique in that way. If EP can stay healthy he will separate himself as one of the best top 3 players in the league. And maybe just maybe (offensively and defensively) the best overall talent in the game one day.

    That’s why I think the Canucks ultimate plan is for EP to center Brock Boeser with either Dahlen or Goldobin. Horvat and Baer will be a great second line for many years. Then you have Gaudette and Virtanen with Leipsic as a solid 3rd line. The future is now.

    I think Dahlen will replace Goldobin. And what’s wrong with having 3 scoring lines and get rid of the dead weight? Baerchi Horvat Boeser Dahlen Pettersson Virtanen Goldobin Gaudette Ganger or (Granlund) Roussel or Liepsic Sutter or Beagle Schaller Eriksson and either Ganger and Granlund gone. If we suit up the same team we will get the same results. The team needs a change of philosophy, 3 scoring lines. Vegas has 4 scoring lines and it didn’t hurt them.

    I see where he’s coming from though. EP *only* scored 7 points in his first 8 Vaxjo games, all assists. Canuck fans were ecstatic, but we had no idea what was in store for EP after that. Something similar could happen in Vancouver but I’m thinking 5-10 points in his first 20 Games before he finds his game. But it’s nothing to get worried about.

    The talents there’s but his effort wasn’t on a lot of nights IMO

    Haha. No. I meant 2 out of Granlund Gangner and Goldobin. The 3 G’s. Hutton and Biega Out because they had such horrible seasons and it’s time to give the back end a new look with some fresher legs.

    http://pmd.sportsnet650.ca/audio_on_demand/kole-lind-with-shah-and-batchelor-cc-20180704-Interview.mp3. Skip to 3:14. That’s where it’s relieved that the Canucks have approached Lind with the possibility of playing centre.

    If I’m Benning it would be Eriksson, Gagner and Granlund. But with Pettersson and Dahlen I don’t see Eriksson being moved anymore. The battle will be between Goldobin and Granlund. So 2 of those 3 I expect will be moved. On Defence Hutton and Biega should be traded or bought out to make room for Hughes and Juolevi.

    I like Lind, but the fact they’re already trying to force him into the centre position makes me think they either want to trade him or they have no intention of sending Gaudette down.. Maybe I’m wrong and he’ll be the answer to Utica’s centre problem. To get a top notch centre prospect will take more than Lind though. What would it take to pry Glass out of Vegas? Tanented centres are hard to find.

    I Like the quote “He was a star on a beer league team that had no business qualifying for the SHL”. And it’s true, you look at Timra’s team stats and Dahlen is in another category. There’s Dahlen all alone in 1st by a few miles, then a cluster of Timra players from 2nd to 7th. Timra has absolutely NO BUSINESS being in the SHL. They’re in the SHL only because Dahlen put Timra on his back.
