    IIRC I think Benning was asked the question again and he said they did have Zadina ranked ahead of Hughes. Not positive about that though. If I had to guess it would be something like Dahlin Svechnikov Zadina Hughes Kotkaniemi Dobson Hayton 2 centers in the top 7. Tkachuck or Wahlstrom may be in there instead of Dobson. Just guessing at this point though.

    Well we haven't seen the opening roster yet so while it's unlikely management might actually give more than just one spot to Pettersson. Also as we all painfully know they both got 4 year contracts, so even if this year isn't the year a bunch of kids make the lineup in the next few years there will be a bunch of them Graduating, including anothet likely high draft pick.
  3. [Poll] Logjam at Offense

    I voted on what I think WILL be but not what I LIKE it to be. What I think it will be: Bae - Bo - Boeser Eriksson - Gagner - Pettersson Granlund - Sutter - Virtanen Gaunce - Beagle - Rousell Schaller What I'd LIKE to see. Granlund and Gagner gone *If Pettersson isn't ready for center. Not a fan of having Gaudette playing 2 C so early but I'm so over watching Gagner trying to be an NHL player and don't want Pettersson or Boeser to suffer the consequences of trying to score while playing on his wing. Nor do I want to see either of them of Sutters wing Bae - Bo - Pettersson Dahlen - Gaudette - Boeser Eriksson - Sutter - Virtanen Gaunce - Beagle - Rousell Schaller If Pettersson does start at center. Less likely but more appealing for a well rounded lineup Bae - Bo - Goldobin Dahlen - Pettersson - Boeser Eriksson - Sutter - Virtanen Gaunce - Beagle - Rousell Schaller

    I think unfortunately Gaudette is going to be the odd man out with the Beagle signing. I can't see him starting his career as a 2nd line center and I can't see Sutter being on anything remotely representing a scoring line. Unless he plays wing which I doubt, might as well having him play a more important center role in Utica Bottom 2 lines I see Roussell - Sutter - Virtanen Gaunce - Beagle - Schaller Top 2 lines then could be something like Bae - Bo - Eriksson Dahlen - Pettersson - Boeser Or have Eriksson play in the bottom 6 and have Goldobin or Gagner (ew) up there. I'd like to see Granlund and Gagner off the starting roster this season. Beagle, Rousell and Schaller make them fairly redundant. Gagner could player 2nd line center if Pettersson isn't ready though. Just too bad he sucks so much

    Thought Palmu and Woo were the real standouts out there. Was to be expected from a guy like Palmu who has pro experience. Woo really impressed me with his smart short transition passes. Safe passes that send the forwards on the rush, nothing long and fancy but he made a few passes that showed a deft touch and intelligence. Also did quite well at getting the puck on net from the point. Looking forward to watching him develop Other guys that did well were Madden and Rathbone. Madden showing his hockey IQ and being in the right place offensively and defensively and Rathbone showed off his great skating Didn't really notice Gunnerson or Utonen that much Thought Lind had a bit of a rough game, quite a few turnovers trying to be too fancy or forcing an extra pass. Hughes didn't really impress until it was 4v4 or 3v3, I don't think he was really trying out there though. Nice to watch the prospects in action

    Fixed that for you
  8. Olli Juolevi | D

    Love the idea of a Juolevi - Hughes pairing, impossible to set up a forecheck on. I think Rathbone is going to be our next 5th round steal and in 3 years will be in the top 4 Juolevi - Hughes Rathbone - Woo Tryamkin - Stecher Breisbois
  9. Tyler Madden | C

    Kid sounds very similar to Lockwood. Small and feisty, lets hope one of them fill out and become solid NHL players
  10. Olli Juolevi | D

    Hopefully Hughes and Juolevi can make a dominant 1st pairing. Both guy excel at retrieving the puck and getting it out of the zone quickly, Juolevi is really good at drawing in forwards and deferring the puck to his D partner so I could see him working really well with an elite skater and puck mover like Hughes. Hughes also said he can play both sides so even though they are both lefties they could be a pairing

    Ya I'm giddy as well. I watched a Michigan game this year against Gaudette and the Huskies before I had done any real research of Hughes and at the time wasn't really into drafting such a small defenseman, I assumed he was just another small offensive defenseman that wows with dangles but doesn't do any of the little things and doesn't really defend well so I was looking to confirm my bias against him. Boy was I wrong and changed my tune after watching that, the guy is truly elite in his defensive work to go along with his offensive game. He'll get overwhelmed sometimes down low I'm sure like we occasionally see happen to Stecher but his ability to defend in the open ice will more than make up for a few of his size shortcomings.

    Ya I get the feeling that Benning will grab a center as well. If Mcleod is still there I could see Benning taking him. I'd love to grab One of Wilde Samuelsson or McIsaac though.

    Benning said it's up to Hughes if he wants to go back to College or try and make the team or go to the AHL
  14. Quinn Hughes | D

    Hasn't made the decision yet.

    I don't think I've ever seen our fan base be so unanimously happy with a draft pick. Is this real life?
