Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

he definitely hasn't said that. 

Ok.  So maybe not exactly that but that he won't start as a center.  Was taken from this quote:

 

"This year, Pettersson played a month of centre, and he’ll come over here and start on the wing,” Benning said. “But at some point, I want to move him to the middle. I don’t know if that will be three months, a year or two years."

 

The point is still the same that we need centers for next year at NHL and AHL level.

Pettersen  is a c/rw and Benning has said won't be a C his rookie year and my guess is he might need to play LW to get with the right type of players to succeed.  

 

Dahlen is a C/LW so maybe Utica has a plan there.  

 

Gaudette would look killer between Dahlen and Jasek in the AHL but I doubt we do that.  

 

Gaunce has waivers to clear and isn't the playmaker we need.  

 

Motte didn't appear to be the right guy for that role either with what I have seen of him.  

 

Dowd is a center and UFA but don't think we sign him or he clears waivers. 

 

Is there a guy like Cal O'Reilly was a couple years back to be had?  Valk would sure fill that role nicely now if he hadn't jumped ship.  

Emil Pettersson?

I like the way you think! 46 pts in 72 games would put him second (in PPG) on the Comets, behind Chaput, for C scoring. He could serve really nicely as a creative, passing 2C, playing with Jasek, Lind, Boucher (if he comes back), etc.

I was thinking more of a free agent.  I think we would have a hard time getting EP's brother out of Nashville without a massive overpayment and I don't think we should have to pay anything for a first line offensive center for our AHL team.  Not that it isn't a nice conceptual idea just I don't think a practical one.

Is Petrus going to play in Utica this year?

Yes. He inked his ELC a few weeks ago. Plan is for him to report to training camp and barring some unbelievable performance there, he'll go to Utica for the year and continue to develop.

This guys highlights from last year are outstanding . He doesn't have the puck on his stick for long and scores in many ways .

I ran into Petrus and Jonah Gadjovich outside my building last night.

 

Palmu is legit 5’6, but man is he solid. 

Really rooting for these guys. Was a little too ‘starstruck’ (lol), I forgot to ask them how Hughes was looking.

 

After this 2018 draft, he went from the smallest Canuck prospect to the third tallest.

He is really interesting as a prospect, the size thing is quite novel and provides great fodder for us fan types. He has a very unique build...  like a power lifter or a wrestler but with the fast twitch muscle needed for the speed of the NHL game. From the tape I watched he seems to be able to move through traffic and attack the net without his size being a barrier. Of course, the tape was all highlights of his points and not of his failed attempts due to being defended by a 6ft+ defender (of which I'm sure there must be plenty... tape and defenders). The fact that he won top rookie in his pro league last year only increases the intrigue.

Speaking of dogs and fighting. I watched a really disturbing movie on Netflix with a dog fighting story line called Bullethead. If I’d had known it was about dog fighting, no way I would have pressed play. Don’t watch if you love animals.
