      Karlsson to Vancouver for Hughes, Boeser, Horvat, and two 1sts.

      @Tortorella's Rant

      and we take Bobby Ryan’s contract too!  :lol:

      I agree with you.  All these “rumors” are just that ... rumours.

      Love the humour!

      are u kidding me tortorella no way  im trading a young elite winger a second line center a potential number 2 dman and 2 firsts for a almost out of prime dman  hard pass

  4. I think Pettersson will enter the NHL at ~185 and will fill out to 195 in his mid 20s. I may be crazy but I genuinely believe he can reach 200. This kid is so incredibly thin, there is so much potential for growth on that 6'2 frame. If RNH can go from 165 to 190+, I don't think Pettersson will have a problem with it. Our boys in the past few years have all developed very nicely. Horvat, Boeser and Juolevi have all been able to get noticeably bigger, stronger, and faster. I think Pettersson is in very good hands.
  5. Drafting McCann definitely wasn't a waste. I'd swap 24 and 33 for a top 4 Dman any day.
  6. I think Benning has a powerplay/OFD in his top 5. There's a very real possibility that we are drafting Heiskenan/Makar/Liljegren
  7. Hopefully he has a productive summer. No post-draft media obligations, just pumping iron and eating well.
  8. Tarasenko is built like a brick house
  9. The same people disappointed in Juolevi's development would've been disappointed in Hampus Lindholm's development as well if he were a Canuck player. If you expect a fish to climb a tree, it will disappoint you every time. If Benning wanted a guy that went 100 mph like Subban, he would've drafted Sergachev. Instead, he opted for the safe, two-way guy in Juolevi. Benning knows exactly what he got.
  10. I'm going to assume you're Irish because of your name
  11. Seeing as Juolevi is a year younger and was chosen captain over Saarijarvi, I don't think I am the only one who would choose Juolevi. Valimaki is not on the same level has Juolevi either. However, I see your point as I would choose those two to score over Juolevi. My point was that Juolevi is a safer defenseman and is multi-dimensional. I would trust Juolevi to protect a lead and I wouldn't be scared to have Juolevi in any situation. I probably didn't choose my wording carefully.
  12. I said Juolevi is the type of guy coaches can trust with a minute left. You quoted me and said he wasn't on the ice with a minute left for the past couple games. Well, there isn't a single defenceman I'd take over Juolevi on that Finnish roster and I'd say Juolevi being named captain is a testament to that. Not putting the captain on the ice in the final minute is questionable. I'm not using the coach as a scapegoat, I just think his deployment of players is questionable and many others would agree with me. FWIW, Juolevi was on the ice in the Czech game.
  13. I think Mittelstadt has everything you could ask for in a center and then some.
  14. It's very easy to look at guys like Ehlers, Drouin or Keller and be excited about their 2 ppg in the Q or their dazzling highlight reels but often times it's the quiet, subtle guys that help win games. Juolevi won't show up in the "top 10 plays of the week" very often but he makes everybody around him better and when there's a minute left on the clock, coaches know there's that one guy they can always trust. Juolevi is that guy. Take the Sharks' playoff run for example. It's easy to see what Burns brings to the game but what about a guy like Vlasic? Tanev is probably the most boring player in the league but 29 other GMs would love to have him on their team. Tkachuck is going to be a phenomenal player but don't sleep on Juolevi. "Vanilla" is necessary sometimes.
  15. You can fool the media but you just can't fool your peers. The whole summer it sounded like he was working hard in the gym and training but by the time September rolled around, he just didn't look ready.
  16. slept in this morning thinking finals were cancelled...

  17. I am seriously concerned about the back problems he will have by the time he gets to the NHL from carrying the team
  18. Who should I draft 1st overall?
