Exactly, if Hansen becomes an everyday 3rd Liner in the NHL, that's pretty darn good for a 9th Rounder.

He also had 21 points in 55 game last year, which projects to 39 points over a full season. Hopefully he'll get to play more games next season like he should have been this season, rather then getting scratched in favor of Pyatt and Hordichuk.

Gradin is ridiculously over rated. He found, Edler through random luck. Don't reckon he deserves credit for Sedins, since they were labeled donkey blue chip prospects. Ohlund maybe..i cant be sure. but that is what he has accomplished since 93-94....

the guy is just lame as delorme.

Thomas Gradin is acknowledged throughout the NHL as one of the best assessment gurus of talent in Europe. Your resume in this area includes....?

Rodin could be the sleeper of the entire draft. You.....simply asleep. :)

I see Hodgson becoming more of ahl type player

Clutch @ Oct 3 2008, 12:34 PM - Alex Burrows, I fail to see the reason why nobody questions his ability to play in the nhl. He can't skate; its ridiculous. IMOP Alex Burrow's an embarrassment to the team. Please Gillis let this guy go and keep Krog or Pettinger or Brown whoever.

Is Gradin our Chief European Scout, or is he just our Swedish scout?

it could be argued that Gradin also discovered Brunnstrom since the canucks were apparently trying to sign him before he had his breakout season in the SEL

Sounds like this guy could be amazing, if some of this years picks pan out, we will have a really deep farm system. Which is great for a change :)

Gradin is an Associate Head Scout, along with Ray Payne, with a focus on Sweden while Payne is the OHL scout. The other European scout is Sergei Chibisov (Russia, likely the reason we drafted Shirokov, Kablukov, Koltsov and other Russians like Gladskikh and Topol) I believe Branislav Pulis (Slovakia) is no longer is a scout. (He was the reason we picked Bliznak in the 7th Round 2005)

The question is then whatabout Finland, Czech Rep. etc., do we even have scouts for there? My guess is no, we haven't drafted a Finnish player since Markus Kankaanpera (2000) and Czech player since Mensator (2002)

Your arguement is somewhat valid, some people on here will just use Gradin as an excuse to justify the pick. i do believe it doesn't matter, if ISS rated him 15 then that's good enough for me, and i only used the fact the Gradin probably scouted him as a reason to calm myself down that we didnt draft someone like Eric Gelinas, who, ironically enough, was the pick immediatly after him. People going nuts over Ferraro and Tatar need to STFU and accept it. Tatar may have lit up the WJC and Extraliga, but he has a long way to go before making the NHL, if he turns out to be a superstar, then it will be because Detroit developed him correctly, not on talent alone. Ferraro had no chance in hell of falling to us. I don't know the the frack the Islanders didn't draft him and took koskinen of all people, when he probably would have been there for their next pick. It would have been great publicity, seeing as Ray played for the Islanders.

Why do people suggest Hansen is a career 3rd liner?
He has the potential to be a top 6 forward with great 2-way ability.

He has great speed, a nice shot, and good 2-way ability. Not to mention he can dangle very well.

At least you know he can beat the goalie.

It would be much worse if every shot went into the netting/off the glass.

But it doesn't go in the net? Sad but true. The only one that did was when he sniped out Legace.

Botchford twittered today that European scouts are saying that Rodin might be the "steal" of the draft.

Seems like a very interesting prospect.
Our top forward prospects now look like:

1. Hodgson
2. Schroeder
3. Grabner
4. White
5. Rodin

mmm...not bad at all. I'm really surprised how much one deep draft can replenish our prospect pool.

Does anyone have any video of this guy, i'm curious to see what kind of player he is. His talent analysis seems really positive though, which is good.

Considering our track record with Czechs are Mensator, Polasek, (The Bad), Slegr (The Good), and Nedved (The Ugly), we either need better scouts there, or need to choose more carefully. I am surprised that we don't have any Finn scouts, maybe we should hire Salo when he decides to hang up his skates?

I like Rodin's upside. His point totals look fantastic. I hope he is the steal of the draft!

Excuse me. If that's your chart for the chances of NHL. In my opinion, it should be like this:

1. Grabner
2. Hodgson
3. Shroeder
4. White
5. Rodin

Grabner is easily the closest to crack the big club, followed by Hodgson.
Not bad, not bad at all.

Exactly. Grabner can play in the AHL and develop further with top line minutes.
Hodgson can't improve any further in the OHL. After being the *best* player in the country, what's left for him there?
And since he can't go to the AHL, he'll be on the Canucks team as the 2nd or 3rd line center.
Grabby has a shot at the team, but with the signing of Samuelsson, we have a logjam at wing and Grabner can be easily foisted on the Moose for another year.

Cody will make the team before Grabner, and usually when rating prospects its who will be a better player when put in order.

Hodgson
Schroeder
Grabner
Rodin
Sauve
Ellington
White

The only way Rodin plays in the WHL is if the Canucks sign him and send him down. I believe he's already under contract with this SEL team.

That doesn't mean squat, he is signed in the SEL. He's coming to Canucks prospect camp because guess what.... HES A CANUCKS PROSPECT!!! Then he will be going back to Sweden to play with his SEL club, i dont get why people think PROSPECTS going to PROSPECT CAMP means anything other than their Canucks PROSPECTS!!!

Some information on Rodin for those who had never heard of him:

Rödin's offensive game stands out thanks to his superb skating, his shot, hockey sense and puck handling. Usually scores quite spectacular goals and does not shy away from playing physical.


He has the offensive arsenal to be a productive player in the future, but has also the fundamental skills to be used as a role- and checkling line player.


Source

because he also brings an energetic, hustling style to the ice.


A gifted puck-handler with a penchant for scoring dramatic goals, Rodin is also a strong two-way performer.


Source

Anton Rodin sticks out a bit as probably being underrated by the scouts,
