Who do you think Bo play's with next year?

How many points do you think he can get? 

Hopefully Baertschi and Virtanen. 

 

50-55 would be awesome.

Bo is gonna put up 60+ points, and be a nominee for the Selki.  

His linemates will be Puliarvi and Virtanen.  

 

:towel:

I think he is going to be put in a defensive role and his line mates will be Gaunce and Etem. He will still get his 45 - 50 points though.

WD says it is better for Horvat to play with defensive wingers and that it was taking him away from his game to play with Baertschi/Vrbata.  

 

I see his most likely linemates as Etem, Dorsett, Gaunce maybe Hansen and Rodin.  Not Baertschi re above and not Virtanen either as WD said a couple of times that he liked Virtanen with Granlund - re also comments by Benning on teams using the 4th line to develop top-9 players.  

 

I hope he can maintain about 40-45 pts and reach 20 goals.

That would definitely be ideal! 

 

unfortunately It looks like he may be forced to stick to the same role since the canucks are in desperate need of secondary scoring and he would be the best option (currently).

 

Do you think Sutter would be better suited for the more offensive role? because it will have to be one of the two (Currently...).

Man I remember the heated debate about using the 4th line for development(I agree 100% with and have been wanting this for years) and or as a grinder line. So many on here where writing" you can not put skill players on the 4th line it a waste " " the fourth line is for toughness and grit".

Easily 55+. I'm gonna be specific and say 58.

Hopefully the Bae/Bo pairing reemerges, but Bae/Granny have had chemistry on prior lines so we'll see. He's looked good with Hansen in the past; I'd like to see that again. He'll likely play with Etem though.

im still waiting to see longer effective shifts from him. especially in the o-zone, want to see better forechecking and causing turnovers for scoring chances.

idk if it's just me seeing this, but does'nt he look slow after like 10 seconds on the ice? for a 20 year old i find it kinda odd.

f.y.i. i like the guy. just pointing out some weaknesses.

he also overplays the puck too much in both zones. thats why his +/- is terrible. needs to skate where the puck is going to be and not where it is all the time.

he has a nice slapshot. needs someone to play with that will set him up often. (give and go type of player)

Get the hell out here with this crap

Bo was awesome last year, I don't care what anyone says.

 

Almost everyone goes through a sophomore slump. During his, he was asked to play a 2nd line shut-down role.

Which he did to the best of his ability. Halfway through the season his offense picked up. Around the same time Beartschi's and Virtanen's did.

 

Bo more than doubled his point output. He got a few more goals but I believe that's just the beginning.

He can easily be a 20+ goal scorer every single year.

 

With Sutter back in the lineup his PK minutes will dwindle but I believe his PP2 minutes will stay the same. Him & Baert will face better matchups. I can't wait.

Bo is too good to play with the plugs we can pair him with on line three. Put shoot first Sutter on there and feed Bo some players that can see the ice better like he does.

Sounds like Horvat will keep the same role - D-zone starts against the scoring lines - but this time around with defensive wingers.  There should be less pressure to produce and he won't be forcing his offence, which was something WD was worried about when he was playing with Baertschi/Vrbata. 

 

As for Sutter, he'll be getting the offensive opportunities - he has to put up points (re being called a foundational player and Bonino doing well).  Media is really building up expectations on him to produce as a C2 with Kuzma even calling him a prime playmaker...

I like the optimism, but even with sheltered minutes, I don't think he'll hit 55+. I'll be glad if he does, but I'd be happy to see him hit around 45 and really establish himself as a 40+ pt. player with good two way play. Hope he erases some of his  negative +/- next year.

Anybody check out his PIMS last season? Could really challenge for the Lady Byng along with the Selke in his prime.

Sorry it was supposed to be more like "Anybody also check out his PIMS?" 

 

But yeah, pretty low PIMS I thought!

Oh my bad. But yeah if he could in 3-4 years time be getting 65+ and being a defensive beast while keeping his PIMS low I could totally see it
