  1. Again, your post doesn’t address my points and simply makes an ad hominem attack. This is the sign of someone who’s well aware they’ve lost a debate. Just because one cannot handle that the points made to counter their argument are valid, does not make one making the points condescending, what it makes them is right and the other side incapable of accepting being wrong, and your response proves it. A verbal attack followed by “I’m right because I say so”. Please enjoy hockeyforums, it’s more your style.
  2. They should have done a raptors clippers preseason game - that would have been smart marketing and a way to maximize revenue
  3. All I see there is a big dman who is mobile, can walk the line, has a snipe of of a wrist shot that can get through, sees the ice incredibly well, almost bouncing passes off guys sticks into the net, and that knows when to come down low and take a risk. Certainty looks like a top 2 dman to me lol. 99.9% of the bashers on here will avoid dealing with what’s in that video and above. Thanks for the post, you made me even more excited to see this kid in our lineup.
  4. They can mutually terminate it. Which is what will happen if they send him to Utica, he will ask.
  5. They’ll move Sutter in feb for a late first if he can be bubble wrapped and stay healthy. Law of averages says he’s due to have a healthy good season. Erickson won’t report to Utica and will void his contract imho. My bet is his agent is already talking to teams and trying to set that up.
  6. He looks to be in good shape and is just enormous, I can’t wait till he’s back in March!
  7. Stecher is a Swiss Army knife RD. Benn is old and can play both sides, he’s here 2 years max. OJ Is a LD, Try can play both sides. Woo will see AHL time before NHL 1-2 years and be a depth guy initially. Troy will stick around and be at worst our next Biega but better. Edler Myers Hughes Tanev Benn Stecher In 2 years years, Edler and Benn will have aged out, Hughes Myers Juolevi Tanev (if resigned although I think he’ll be traded if Tryamkin is signed in march) Tryamkin Stecher Woo
  8. And potentially the season prior. If you recall he injured his back in training the year prior and it hurt his chances in camp. He’s had two untimely and unlucky injuries in two years - but our haters love ignoring that. apparently OJ should be good enough to make the NHL and dominate as a top 2 because of his draft position despite injuries . If you’re 5th overall you should be as good as doughty on one leg and a messed up back according to their logic. Lol
  9. Probabilities based on what? Not putting up points from his couch with a torn up knee? Ok smh
  10. As I stated above to Alf your response is typical of those who want to bash our prospects. http://forum.canucks.com/topic/377676-olli-juolevi-d/?do=findComment&comment=14982796 You say 6 years but you ignore actual facts behind his development, yet a few posts prior try to pretend you incorporate it into your thinking. 6 years are not really “6 years” when 2 of those years have been effectively lost to injury are they? And guess what? Who cares? If he’s a number 1 or 2 by 24 years old is that a big deal to you? Lol. But let’s also not forget
  11. Who said that? How long did Josi take to be a top pairing dman? 5-6 years right? By 200 games however we should be able to see what his ceiling is. Perhaps take reading comprehension from grade 6 again.
  12. Talk to me after 200 games in the NHL as to whether he was worth a 5th overall. That’s generally a good barometer. Enjoy Hockey Forums, it’s more up your alley
  13. I don’t hate other teams. I just think it’s early to say OJ was not worthy of 5th overall given 1. He was known to need time to gain strength 2. He looked to be developing fine then got a couple of unfortunate injuries. None of that suggests he wasn’t worth the 5th overall. Those complaining are basing their assessment on “speed to nhl” and ignoring 1 and 2 above yet saying they aren’t ignoring it. Their position is not logically consistent with facts or even their own statements
  14. It sure is. But it’s hard to get results when you’re injured isn’t it?
  15. Cool story. We disagree. Now what?
  16. It’s pretty easy to read between the lines when someone is so vocal about a player not living up to being 5th overall. Especially when said player hasn’t reached the nhl yet due to unfortunate injuries. But carry on.
  17. I think you need to read other people’s posts better, I think you need to learn how you speak to others, and finally learn that opinions of hockey players aren’t worth your anger. Have a nice life, there’s a reason I had you on block and now I remember
  18. I agree, he’s a great shooter but hasn’t shown much else, a one dimensional player. That one dimension is highly valued in the NHL and on our team for certain, but he’s no Brett Hull or Ovechkin, Stamkos, let alone even Laine (who has his own drawbacks). For him to be paid like an “elite” goal scorer he needs to be an elite multi dimensional player or an absolute certainty (aka Ovie light, which he is not). His skating is an issue and I certainly hope he tries to address this in the off-season, as Bo successfully did. It’s an improvable skill, and given last years injury he likely didn’t have
  19. He’s been injured 2 seasons in a row, and missed a lot of games. Of course management is concerned with his development. He’s missed a lot of hockey
  20. What I don’t seem to understand is you somehow seem believe your “opinion” on what a player’s ceiling is, is somehow fact. I don’t propose that OJ “WILL” be Josi 2.0, but rather he has that potential. Roman Josi didn’t have Roman Josi potential when drafted did he? If so why was a number 1 dman taken in the second round? Ie see Shay Weber, Subban, Keith, many others. That’s the funny thing about drafting, you never really know until a while into their career what they will actually be! Also, my (or anyone else’s) opinion on a message board won’t put any pressure on th
  21. He was also -11 in like the first 7 games or so. He adjusted quickly after that bad start and as above plus / minus is never really a great stat. It’s more a team stat than individual
  22. I don’t think everyone who believes OJ can be a 2-3 dman in the NHL is in fairy tale land, I’m not. That’s what he was drafted for. When he was drafted JB said he would need a year or two to gain strength but that his skating and mind, and skill were NHL caliber. He took the year in Junior to get bigger and like many young players who put on the wrong kind of weight came to camp sluggish. That’s been seen many times for anyone who’s been around the game long enough. Kids think just adding weight is all they need, when it can actually slow them down if not the right ki
  23. Why is it unfair to compare him to a second round pick who took 5 years to develop? He was drafted for the level of upside Josi has. Until he’s played 200 games in the NHL I will continue to expect him to achieve that level of performance. Nothing other than injuries suggests he can’t reach his ceiling and it’s people like you who actually want to ignore that fact.
  24. He seems to believe he’s capable of it (still playing in the NHL) so don’t discount him walking. He’s made close to $50 mil in his career dude, walking away from 9 is 4.5 after tax. If he believes he can sign for 2 years at 2-2.5 per year and not take his family to Utica for three years I’m pretty sure he’d bite the bullet. Money is a lot less important to a guy who’s made 50 mil than you or I https://www.capfriendly.com/players/loui-eriksson
