Växjö is swedish champions and i have never seen anyone dominate the playoffs and the finals this bad. Not Peter Forsberg. Not Mats Sundin. This wasn't the SHL finals It was Elias Pettersson Show.

  4. https://www.expressen.se/kvallsposten/sport/hockey/shl/lycka-till-for-vi-lar-inte-ses-nagot-mer/ Växjös backup goalie got the question "How happy are you that you dont have to play against Pettersson?" Play against him? I get humiliated enough at practice. I think thats enough! Its amazing to be able to see him up close, i think its been there all year and its extra satisfying to be this close and get to learn the boy behind all the hard work. Andrén said. "Youve only seen part of it. We in Växjö thats watching him every day can see what he is able to do, said coach Hellgren

  7. We all can clearly see this great kid Pettersson is as good as it gets offensively but 1 thing I always notice while watching him is he always applies relentless pressure on the forecheck, has a great stick and knack for getting in passing lanes and intercepting passes as well. Another good thing I noticed Pettersson skates just as hard if not harder on the backcheck than offensively to do his best to break up opposing team's offense which is obviously another great trait to have and both these great attributes will get his line much more puck possesson and offensive chances. This great ability he has defensively to go with the crazy offensive fire power is really going to go a long way at making him an all around great hockey player and go a long way in helping the Canucks play winning hockey.

  9. I don’t think it’s humanly possible for a season to go any better for a prospect outside NA pro hockey... Just incredible. He went from good, to great, to ridiculous (and then to super devil pussy).

  11. The excitement around Pettersson and this thread has been really enjoyable to be apart of. Thank you all for helping and his run so memorable. It is nice having so many like minded hockey folks to share his SHL playoffs with!

  14. C'mon Stawns... lighten up man. This is the biggest that has happened to this franchise in donkeys years. We all understand this is a kid, but if people can't get overly excited about his exploits, what are we going to get excited about. Open a beer, let you hair down and smile... Thats what we been doing for quite a while now

  15. had the same thought exactly, it kind of explains a lot of what he's doing. Sure he's light but thats not a weak person there, just no frickin' body fat.

  20. you really are a glass half empty sorta guy well good on you you'd be prepared to lose him by insisting on a demotion ? if he was good at contract negotiations i'd bet you'd want him moved to assistant gm? he is an asset as gm .. but slice this anyway you need to bud

  21. It was said earlier in this thread that his teammates call him Alien. That is an outstanding nickname.

  22. Better than patty Kane. Forsberg was better than Kane and Pettersson is ahead of even the great Peter Forsberg at his age.

  23. yah compared to the marshmallows the Sedin's were at the same age its quite the difference If he does gain more weight this offseason it'll probably be in his legs but honestly i think its time we all stop worrying about it. EPs going to be just fine. This playoff run was tougher competition and he chewed right through it.

  24. At this point, we should be arguing whether or not Green scratches him for the first 2 games.

  26. I somehow don't think the canucks will be adjusting their top 10 draft rankings based on the fact that they own the rights to a longshot 4th rounder playing US high school hockey.

  28. Keep him down as long as possible, until he requires waivers. Then we can #savesumcash and not have to re-sign him for big bucks, so we can have cap space to sign UFAs... er, to have cap space. Of course, that's all in the faint hope he actually signs with the Canucks instead of sitting out and re-entering the draft. He probably wants to play for Detroit anyway. Oh well.

  29. " Elias Pettersson's brilliance is always on the ice and in the scorecard, but also in the fact that he did not play minus in a single match after JVM! And only in 2 (!!) matches throughout the season in SHL."

  30. Yeah, he needs to spend time with Trent Cull doing drills in the d zone, wacey hamilton can show him how to use the 45lb plates on the bench press, and Carcone can show him the burpees...canucks should put off signing him for as long as possible, weaponize the cap and trade for more 6th rounderzzzz

  32. With 19 points in 13 games it also places him firmly into the top 10 of ALL-TIME SHL playoff scoring...(along with top U-20 SHL record as a side-note)

  34. I think it boils down to this....if you have been a Canuck fan long enough you sort of get used to not having nice things. Oh, things can be good for a while, but eventually things tend to end in tears. Now that things are looking up again with a young talented core developing....and PERHAPS some draft lottery luck....and now you allow yourself to start to dream the EP might be REALLY SPECIAL.. Well, some *raises hand* start to get a bit nervous that some shoe is about to drop. It's not great mindset to have, and I am striving to change it....but with EP, part of me just refuses to believe he is OURS.

  35. According to Adam Brodecki (Lakers player) they've given EP the nickname "Alien" since he's out of this world

  38. Not sure if it's been mentioned but EP has only played average of 16 minutes of icetime both in regular season and playoffs. Both Nicklas Backstrom and William Nylander played average of 19 minutes during their seasons so when you calculate from a points per minutes played EP's stats would be more impressive and I could see a situation where he has about 16% more points than he currently does if he had played 19 minutes a game.
