what do you guys think of this guy? he is the son of the famous Ulf Samuelsson. he plays like his dad. hits hard, works hard, big body, except he is a forward.

he plays in the WHL for the edmonton oil kings. over a ppg in the playoffs currently. could be a milan lucic type.

i wouldn't mind seeing the canucks use their 1st round pick on him. a little high, maybe, but gillis and co like their swedes and he will for sure be gone by the early second round. maybe we can trade down?

Interesting. If he is as good as you are making him out to be, he might be worth a shot.

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

I didn't know Henrik Sedin and Mikael Samuelsson could do the fusion dance! :lol:

Or maybe it's the fusion earrings, seeing as how their height and weight are very different :P

Hes a bit out of control though... hes been suspended 4 or 5 times. Hes officially labeled a "repeat offender"

doesn't matter how good you are if you're suspended...

heres a link that shows a cross check to the face @ 10 seconds in (in a WHL final game.)...

You can include Kassian as well. AV's solution for him is to keep his ass planted on the bench.

true enough i guess.
I know im a different guy than i was as a teen.
Maturity and experience could likely help the kid out, but i would at least consider
the fact that he MAY be a liability.

Didn't see too much discipline from any of those guys in the playoffs

Him or Martin Frk would be a tough choice. But in the end I think I would take Samuelsson.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

a 5 game sample does not change the fact that they have changed as players. kesler and burrows were both agitators 3-5 years ago. kesler has turned into a 25-40 goal scorer selke winner while burrows has been a prime reason why the sedins have evolved into the players they are today.

lappy is also a totally different player from his MTL days

he looks like a hell of a player from what i seen in the memorial cup so far.. seems to have hands and playmaking ability.

i think these guys that play over the edge in junior but show hockey sense and skill are more than worth taking a chance on, even using a high draft pick because the upside they have is huge. looking at our situation, if we develop kassian into a good player then he is going to be the perfect mentor to this kid. if kassian busts (i dont think he will) we still have another solid power forward with an edge prospect.. if both of them pan out to their potential then we will be a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs.

when is he projected to go in the draft?

He was ranked 75th by CSS in the final rankings, which is in the third round. After his Memorial Cup play I'd expect a team to take a chance on him in the 2nd round and i hope the Canucks are willing to take him 57th overall.

75th in the North American rankings. Factor in the Europeans, it would be the fourth-fifth round.

ISS (which doesn't differentiate between North American or European) has him at 49th.
