    A Couple Notes On Boeser & Virtanen

    I have a theory about Brock. I think with his back injury, he had trouble training the cardio side of his game. As a result, he focused specifically on weight training. He bulked up but there wasn't a proper balance to his regiment. As a result, he's slowed down and struggling with the pace of the game. He's still getting assists because he's a smart player, but he doesn't have the speed and agility right now to make room for himself to use his shot. I think he'll be fine, he just needs to even out his training regiment now that he's more or less healthy.

    I'm with you. Seems like a perfect opportunity to get him some more NHL experience.

    Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    I was upset that we didn't take Glass, but I spent an hour researching Pettersson afterwards and was happy by the end of it. The draft is such a $&!#show. You just can't make immediate judgments.

    Ran into this article today from a Leafs fan who had Pettersson as the undisputed no.1 in the draft. Really enjoyed it. https://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/2017/5/28/15706426/elias-pettersson-and-the-myth-of-the-two-horse-race

    Negative. Both Matthews and Kuznetsov had 2 goals tonight. So what I'm trying to say is that EP is a bust.

    Does anyone have links to the players post game interviews? I can't seem to find them anywhere.
  9. It's nothing against OP, as I like rumors as much as the next fan, but I love that every hockeybuzz post starts with "I know it's Eklund, but..."
  10. I absolutely believe it will. Pouliot was fine but he won't be the guy going forward. Edler or Hutton (if he can sort out his passing) will be there. I'm excited for when Hughes shows up because his passing and elusiveness on the Blueline are exceptional.
  11. Here's my take on Brock last year. The first half of the season, people weren't ready for him and his shot. The second half, I watched PKs change and move away from Hank on the right side to constantly cover Brock (on the PP). He kept scoring. When teams start to respect EP on the right side, it's going to create a lot of opportunity for both players. Both Brock and Elias will do well this season.
  12. Nope. Sophomore bust. Trash player. Once again, do I need a /s?
  13. This is what he does. In his first few games in the SHL, he was unremarkable, but he learned and then took the league by storm. He started slow at the WJC then heated up. He's such a smart player that when things aren't working for him, he's able to identify the issue and adapt. He's a scary player.
  14. My favorite was "do you keep the puck even though it's pre season?" Pettersson: "no"
