  1. We got 2 beauties in the 2019 draft. Hoglander with Petey and Podkolzin with Bo equals success for years to come. The moves on these kids...
  2. What's the word on CV-19? Is there a huge spike in the cases since the protests?
  3. Hoglander gets his 1st goal of the season. It's great to have another player to follow in the SHL. The atmosphere in those buildings is really fun to see. #21 in green is like a pitbull when the puck is near him and he isn't afraid to go to the corners to battle. His puckhandling is also very good and he's getting powerplay time. It's going to be great to follow him this season.
  4. Those are his measurements from this years combine and he absolutely crushed the fitness and power tests. https://thehockeywriters.com/2019-nhl-combine-heights-weights/ https://link.nhl.com/centralscouting/public/ Kid's gonna be a beauty.
  5. He's already a freak athlete and he's always going to be as wide as he is tall. You just have to recognize talent. Pettersson has #40 in honor of Zetterberg, but he plays like Datsyuk. Hoglander is Pettersson's Zetterberg. 2 talents like this with Hughes Boeser and Horvat is an amazing foundation to build on.
  6. I see Brendan Gallagher when I watch this kid. I'd be amazed if he doesn't get an invite to main camp and from there, who knows. Tuck Hoglander under Petey's wing, then you gain instant depth and recoup some picks with your extra assets.
  7. https://www.nhl.com/canucks/video/dev-camp--nils-hoglander/t-277437438/c-68561703 This kid has ridiculous skill and compete. Pettersson or Horvat are getting an amazing winger very soon.
  8. Christmas in June getting Hoglander and Podkolzin. There's no way that these 2 players aren't in the NHL within 2 years. I'm gonna put this out into the universe. Hoglander can make the Canucks this season.
  9. I caught some of the game tonight. It's hard to watch a game when you only get to see the player you're looking for is on the ice for a third of the game. What poise from this kid. He almost never makes a mistake. He's always on the right side of the puck. He makes every pass on the tape and some of the stretch passes he made lead directly to scoring chances. The last time I referred to his game I used the adjective Smooth. Watching him tonight the word effortless comes to mind.
  10. who knew a google search of rat bun would yield results.
  11. Mikey 19 going on 29. https://www.tsn.ca/radio/vancouver-1040/dipietro-want-to-win-a-cup-in-vancouver-but-don-t-want-to-rush-process-1.1242048
  12. e·gre·gious /əˈɡrējəs/ adjective adjective: egregious 1. outstandingly bad; shocking.

  13. Way to double down on the comparisons Stylistically I see more Orr in Hughes. Those 2 really didn't/don't care about the lines on the ice, they just skate to find open ice and are willing to take the puck right to the opposition goal line. In my viewings of Rathbone, he doesn't get on the wrong side of the puck. He is very responsible defensively and he knows when to back out of the offensive zone. The word that comes to mind when I watch Jack play is Smooth. He's almost like Tanev with way better skating and offense.
  14. I was more referring to his stature, poise with the puck, elite level skating and playmaking ability. I seriously doubt he becomes a hall of famer like Housley, but he has all the skills to be a good pro and control play from the backend.
  15. I watched parts of this game and the announcer called him 'Bonecrusher' after that hit. He's a Phil Housley or Ryan Ellis level player. He's always on the right side of the puck and has his head up the whole game. I'd sign him to a PTO with Utica at the end of this season. He's pro level good already and has been quoted as saying that he wants to get to the NHL as soon as possible. I'd let him make the jump this season and get him started on his pro journey.
