He really needs to fill out.

He's 18. Time is on his side.

Not thrilled with the pick...I really hope I'm wrong about it though.

 

For anyone saying this is an amazing pick, or a horrible pick, we all need to wait and see. Won't know until 2022 or so how it all pans out.

This just makes the Virtanen pick look that much worse.  We could of had Nylander + Glass now we have Petterson + Virtanen

Don't forget Juolevi over Tkachuck

If what some people have claimed about his older brother never filling out his wirey frame are true, this pick concerns me.

 

I hope those claims are wrong and we just stole the draft.

Potentially highest offensive ceiling in draft. Wanted Vilardi or glass but I'm happy with this, they are the pros.

The biggest fear I have with Petterson is his ability to actually gain weight

 

Look at the breadth of his shoulders.  He's not much different than the female anouncer.  They're about as wide across the shoulders as each other.

 

That slight of a frame will have a very tough time putting on weight and I can see him around 180 pounds in 2-4 years.

 

Think about a 180 pound center here in the west/pacific as a 1st line center.

 

I have a lot of faith and hope in him but there's a long LONG term project in our organization in Petterson

I really wanted Glass and I got the sense that Glass wanted to be picked by Vancouver too.  But good luck to Petterson; hope he reaches his full potential.

We needed a defenseman way more severely than a winger.

Love it, elite skill, just wait till he fills out. Plus, AHL eligible this year I'm pretty sure!

Yeah I heard that before ... Can anyone say Jared McCann ?

Love this pick.  Loved the Olli Juolevi pick last year and love this pick with Elias Petterson.  

 

Needs to fill out, but I think he has a higher offensive ceiling than Vilardi and Glass.
