  1. not a good signing thusfar but maybe he can turn it around. A lot of Jets fans though were happy to see him gone and we can kinda see why now
  2. Are people seriously trying to argue that Virtanen is better than Ehlers/Nylander? Those two are elite first line forwards. Quite embarrassing that someone would even think Virtanen is better
  3. Lias Anderson (NYR), Erik Brannstrom (VGK), Timothy Liljegren (TOR), Sam Steel (ANA), Joran Kyrou (STL) were all fantastic today. Steel, Anderson, and Kyrou in particular. Petterson wasn't very noticeable. It is a summer game so who cares really but I would have liked to see him dominate against players his own age.
  4. I think this is a really good, fair post. Anderson may not have the high end skill of a Pettersson, but he showed he can snipe and play a really good complete game. Completely agree with your assessment on Liljegren. It's clear he is very, very raw. But the tools as you mentioned talent wise are too good to ignore. You can coach out those bad plays out of him, but the elite skating, shot and hands/passing are impossible to teach. I agree with the Kessel/Mittlestadt comparison. It's a good one. I think Casey doesn't have the shot that Phil does, but the playmaking, speed, and vision is there. He's very raw defensively.
  5. Petterson is playing on the third line with Bratt and Karlstrom in 10 minutes vs Canada.
  6. Yeah he was clearly dealing with something, he's not at 100% but still looked decent. Off topic but Casey Mittelstadt (BUF), Lias Anderson (NYR) and Timothy Liljegren (TOR) looked really, really good. Three standouts for me.
  7. it's the truth. We clearly didn't value elite skill at the time, or we would have taken Nylander. Petterson has elite skill. Overjoyed to see them take this direction.
  8. exactly this, wish we had Nylander but lets just be happy that we see the franchise values elite skill over "meat and potatoes"
  9. Said this would be a good pick from a long time ago. Great to see the Canucks chose skill over size. That's what lead us to take Virtanen over Nylander. This is great. Ecstatic.
