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.

Uhmm, I'ld like to see him in the AHL. See what he can do against men. But very exciting pick. Hopefully we'll know if he's NHL caliberin 2-3 yrs.

He will be playing in the SEL for the next season for sure and I think there is one more year on his contract. After that he can come over here. The Swedish Elite League IS a mens league.

Thomas Gradin also compared him (Rodin) to Anders Hedberg.

Source

For those of you who don't know Hedberg.. he broke 100 points all 4 years he played in the WHA, and had a career high 79 points in the NHL.

He was a little right winger at about 5'10 and 170-175 pounds.

Yann Sauve was invited to Development Camp last season but was not this year, which surprises me. There are a couple guys invited that I would have thought Sauve would beat out. But oh well.

Rodin will at least be on the Swedish team

Man i can't wait for the WJC Rodin and Schroeder are going to be exciting to watch, especially rodin as many have said he is that quick and shifty player who's got amazing stick handling abilities aswell. I hope the final ends up being Team U.S.A vs Team Sweden, it would be epic seeing how they would both do when the stakes and pressure to succeed are at an all time high.

He'll probably play out his two-year contract in the SEL.

So you're hoping Canada doesn't make it to the finals? What kind of Canadian are you?

I'd rather see the US lose to canada in the semi's and Sweden lose to them in the final.

Im hoping for a good showing from Schroeder and Rodin, but I would much rather see Canada win.

Much the same as I hope Daniel and Henrik have good olympics for sweden and Kesler for the USA, but would rather see team Canada win.

I love what I'm hearing about this kid. Obviously the great skating, shot and puckhandling are nice, but I'm mostly stoked about his reported tenacity. Anybody who plays like a checker but has loads of talent is ten times better than a talented but disinterested player (Yashin). Canucks have a few foreward prospects with very high ceilings after all these years of nobodies. If even half of Rodin, Hodgson, Grabner, Schroeder, Raymond, Bernier, or White turn out, that right there takes care of five of our top six, what with Hank and Dank being locked in for five. I'm stoked about the fact that we finally have some decent prospects. Hopefully this is just the beginning..

We'll see.. If he puts on a lot of muscle in the next two seasons (in the SEL), I could see him jumping straight from the SEL to the Canucks.

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.

It seems like you're arguing just for the sake of arguing. :rolleyes:

So having a future all time canucks points leader wouldn't be a good thing? Don't remember Naslund for his last two years, that isn't really fair. I hated it when people turned on him because he couldn't put up 80+ points anymore, the guy wasn't gonna be able to be a star forever. I only wish he would have left when he was on top of his game, then people would give him the respect he deserves.

So never being able to lead a team deep into the playoffs is a good thing? Disappearing when it matters the most is a good thing?

And I can't forget that infamous "We choked" comment. I died on the inside when I heard that. That's not something a real leader would say.

Yeah no kidding a real leader would hide away from all the media crying while letting the Sedins do all the talking. Yep best captain in the NHL right there! :rolleyes:

Edit:

It amazes me how much people turn a blind eye to Luongo because he's Canadian yet has never shown anything that he is a good leader or even shown a true commitment to the team while bash Naslund because he's European yet he would face the media regardless how ruthless they were and always stated how commited he was.

When someone says "This prospect reminds me of this former or current NHLer", that doesn't mean that they will be a complete clone of them. I don't understand why people go on about character issues when making comparisons that were originally about skill. Rodin isn't Naslund. Shirokov isn't Samsonov. Schroeder isn't Fleury or Kariya. Hodgson isn't going to be Linden either (though that one is the opposite in that it's about character rather than skill).


I guess it's a starting place for a good argument if you've got nothing better to do.
