Tate Olson | D

Recommended Posts

Looks to be a project pick. That's alright for a 7th round pick. If one day he slots in as a 5/6 dman for the canucks I will call that a win.

Dude every 7th round pick is a project lol. And if he turns into a 5th/6th D man than yeah I would sure hope you call it a win

Do you live in PG?

Yep. So when I say I've seen him a lot, I mean almost all the home games this year. Judging by your username you do too?

No I don't live there, I was just wondering how much you had really seen him play. Definitely sounds like a "project"

Interesting pick, maybe some developmental growth yet to give him a better chance at a pro player.

My friend lives in PG and went to lots of games this past year watching Tate Olsen. So I asked him regards to him what he thought about Tate Olsen and his fit in the Canuck system.

He said Tate is a very honest player. Lays it all out on the ice when he plays. Needs work on his decision making as he tends to sometimes panic but overall will be a solid top six dman in a few years. Said that Tate Olsen likes to look for the big hit so sometimes leaves him out of position which in part is what my friend suggested needs working on his decision making.

From my friend's perspective he is pretty optimistic Olsen will suit up for the Canucks.

Right. Any 7th rounder even plays one game in the NHL has beaten long odds to get there.

Nice to get input from someone who can see him play quite a lot. That is one negative with picks in Russia or North Dakota (where Boeser will be). It is hard to get much information on them. And even stat lines are harder to interpret.

So he's another Sbisa? CDC will love that.

Lol. He makes Sibisa look like the second coming of Nick Lidstrom.

Three words for Olson: Hakan Andersson steal.

I just cannot believe anyone could have got him at 210th overall. He's a great player, has all the tools to be a future Chris Pronger - he just needs to keep up his work ethic and strive to get better.

Don't get me wrong, I like the pick, but he's got a long, long ways to go to get to anything close to Pronger.

Chris Pronger was drafted in 1993.. since then, many, many, many defensemen have been drafted with far superior skills than Tate Olsen and not a single one has turned into the next Pronger.

Temper expectations. Especially with a 7th rounder

A 210th overall pick is definitely comparable to an all-star HoF 2nd overall pick. Not sure why you guys would think otherwise

Edit* Fixed that for yah

A yeah my bad.. what were we thinking.

He has the tools - of course there is no guarantee he will, but he can. And you're missing my point, Tate with his tools probably should have gone higher, still no guarantee it will pan out, but it's a promise.

Count on the Nucks to develop him in two years to be a great blueliner.
