Looking at this photo, Petey might actually be 6'4 like what was reported in that one swedish article over the summer. Brock is 6'1 and Petey looks at least 2-3 inches taller. Could just be the angle though.

Probably the angle, but I was thinking the same thing. He's reportedly 6'2", but I'd wager he's closer to 6'3" now.

It's nice that EP is seemingly "struggling" offensively... yet he's on pace for 97 points.

 

He’s definitely not getting the bounces and to some extent he’s been frustrated by tight checking, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him doing a bit better numbers wise going forward  But I agree, we really can’t complain either way...

 

EP talked in the off-season about being ready for 82 games so I think he’s playing more paced by design, almost like a vet already. Playing with Miller probably helps as well. 
 

The one thing I don’t like is that he gets loads of shifts with the 3rd D for some reason, which means he rarely gets the puck on his stick with speed. That’s a shame since he really is flying when he picks up speed.

Probably because most of the time when Petey is on the ice, the other team is matching up their shutdown line to try to counter him. In turn we would save our better D for the opponents more imposing scoring lines.

Thank God four teams were dumbos at the draft and let us have Petey at number five.  Hischer and (forgot the Philly pick) are looking like pretty average (at best) players.

The only issue is that NJD massively overpaid to extend Hischer.... thus giving EP way more leverage to get more money during negotiating.  

I just hope that GMBJ can reason with him by pointing out that Bo and Brock took a relative discount when they didn't have to.  Then point to the Oilers and TML on how having too many players with heavy contract will sink a team.

This is why you need late draft picks to make the line-up (Like JB has done).

And trade for good contracts ala Miller. Could you imagine if Torana  extended miller?

Elias Pettersson might be from Sweden but he's being so Canadian lately. At Monday night's Canucks game against the Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks' Elias Pettersson, AKA Petey, shot a puck during warm-up. It ended up hitting the crossbar and striking a Canucks fan who in the stands at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. He made it up to them by giving them an autographed hat and it was the most Canadian thing ever.

The hat Petey signed said simply, "Sorry about the puck," on one side of the brim and had his autograph on the other side.

Petey's apology is super Canadian and at 21-years-old he's a very polite Canuck player.

Luckily, the fan appeared uninjured and in good spirits since they seemed to pose for photos with the signed hat later. 

Even though the Canucks lost to the Flyers in their game on Monday, November 25 at least we have this memorable moment to treasure from the game. 

Canadians are the first to make fun of our penchant for apologizing. It's a really strong part of our culture and it sets us apart from the rest of the world.

Few things are so Canadian as apologizing for hitting someone with your hockey puck. It's so Canadian that it sounds like the punchline of a joke.
