  1. Olli Juolevi | D

    The main thing with how Juolevi racked so many points in London, as well as the finland WJC team, was getting the puck out of the zone and transitioning it to his talented forward groups on both teams. With the forward core we already have, I feel like Juolevi can see similar production to maybe Ristolainen, which is a 30-45 point consistent dman. He'll have a similar effect as Hughes, but will be doing it with a good first pass out of the zone instead of using elite skating.

    I can see what you mean, however he does it using his size, puck protection and a little bit of speed and instead of purely speed and agility. I like that Cozens use his size very well, kind of like Malkin, keeping players away from the puck using his ass haha.
  3. Canucks Top Ten prospects (Updated for 2018-2019)

    I wouldn't say Demko is the most proven in the pro scene. Pettersson just dominated a pro league in the SHL which is arguably the same level as the AHL. (Lias Andersson posted the same PPG in both leagues)

    I remember that quote, and Benning was saying they also only had "a couple" of guys ahead of Hughes, which points to Dahlin and Svech. I posted this list a while back but this is how I perceived the list to be after all the interviews i've heard. DahlinSvechnikovHughesZadinaKotkaniemiTkachukHayton

    If Horvat can score 30 this year, then no.

    Tkachuk giving some cheap shots to Jett Woo who’s being tangled up by the ref.. need to see Woo give him a big hit in Vancouver

    The thing with hughes is he's able to take risks as he can get back to defend with his skating even if a player is a step ahead.
  8. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Based on history, I don't think Pettersson will win the calder, but he could end up being a better overall player then whoever wins the calder in the following seasons. He has a history of starting slow then adapting to the league he's playing in. Whether that is only the first 10 games, or whether its the whole season remains to be seen.

  10. Jett Woo | D

    I don't think playing the right way was even a problem with Woo. I think the coach just trusted veterans with more experience.

    One interesting thing Benning has said in his most recent sportsnet interview, they had both Hayton and Kotkaniemi also in their top 7. Which means their list was something like this: Dahlin Svechnikov Hughes Zadina Kotkaniemi Tkachuk Hayton
  12. Jett Woo | D

    Saw this from someone who watches Moose Jaw games... "One hopes Woo, who was held back a bit, if not quite a bit, by Hunter in Moose Jaw, is a lot better than people think. When he plays away from Hunter he plays a lot better, looks like a real competitor and his offence is better too. If Hunter lets him play and doesn’t sink him on the 3rd pairing for 1/2 the season….. After all, in the 1st twenty, when Moose Jaw’s defence was depleted, Woo played a lot, looked very good, and the Warriors were very good. Then late in the season, after his injuries and suspensions and trades, Hunter benched him in favour of Clague and Josh, because he prefers to play ‘veterans who know the right way to play’."

    JB Seems to highly value skating and hockey IQ. Jake Wise had the hockey IQ, but not the skating.
