Olli Juolevi | D

Recommended Posts

I think it's only a matter of time before Oli shows that he is ready for the NHL.  Like many have said, he's coming back from some tough injuries, so it's probable that he just needs a little more time to be the player that he was expected to be when drafted.  It's going to be well worth the wait.

Olli panning out sooner than later would be such a &^@#ing boon for this team.

Kid has looked very good since he came back from injury.  He is going to push to make the team out of camp next year.  As is Raftery. Lind maybe as well.

 

Our prospect depth makes our cap situation so much more manageable.

We have shown time and again that if young players earn a spot out of camp that management will make room for them. Whatever contracts in the way need to outplay the youth and not get waived.

We got lots of bad contracts expiring over the next few seasons, I think Myers is arguably our only long term contract that could turn out iffy and he’s very movable if he continues the way he’s played but the eriksson Baer sutter beagle contracts are all gone by summer 22 along with the Luongo penalty lots of room for resigning our stars to promotions and then roster spots for our prospects

We're pretty set up in 2 more seasons when we're gonna have a lot of guys knocking on the door.

 

Might have one or two next young guys next season but the season after we might see Hog, Pod, Rathbone, Juolevi, Lind and Madden(later in the year) compete for spots/get good looks. Most of our prospects are playing pro/college and it really fits where we are as an organization right now.

 

That 2021 draft Luke Hughes is available too. We might need a top 10 pick to nab him though.

Yup! Trade Stretcher at the TDL, call up Rafferty, OJ can replace Rafferty as the Comets #1D and 1st call up option.

 

Next year OJ can be first injury call up again to start, and eventually replace Benn at the TDL.

He's only credited with 19 points on hockeyDB. Was one of his assists taken away from him?

Maybe?  But what’s most important is OJ is clearly going to be a really good top four D man for us.  He’s going to turn out, after he’s fully mature, the excellent D man JB expected at the draft.

More importantly, this is crucial and vital information......

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did his plus minus change?

I’m just hoping that he can finish out this season without anymore injuries, and that for the first time in a long time, he can go into the summer with full health.  
 

The only contracts that we may move might be Stecher and Schaller.

I understand that Legion

 

My point was that if they want to bring up players on more than a look see next year, they will have to be active in moving players at this years TDL and in the summer......

and if they are just moving out bad contracts it will cost them picks and prospects...….

 

It is getting to the point of "My Cup Runith Over", not a bad problem to have!

I think this is one aspect of OJ's game that he does that better than Hughes.

 

 

...and they both do it way better than Edler...who is doing it better than Edler of 2 years ago...

To me coaches grade players differently to fans. Coaches tend to measure by the number of mistakes ...NOT made. Edler makes few hence the coach and if polled most coaches would grade in that manner. Edler is reliable game after game shift after shift  ( he has the best +/- on the team LOL ) Coaches feel comfortable seeing him out there. I wish we had more Edler like player at the back end

Everyone likes players who overcome adversity.

 

Benning just happened to draft Juolevi pre-adversity. ;)

That's a nice wrister. The fact that he can score from that far out is going to generate a lot of scoring chances for our team on the rush.

 

I think OJ already has an NHL offence. Looking forward to seeing him soon.

 

 

 

Game from yesterday. Really nice accurate shot off the rush. Juolevi has been emerging.

Good to see him finding some form - especially after having trouble getting over injuries in North America. Hope he can continue to improve as he definitely has some very good qualities to his game that could help us as this team grows.
