Sven Baertschi | LW


Recommended Posts

Why?

Because of how I've seen him play in the last 3 years.

Fair enough and all I'm saying is if im going to get excited about him; then, he needs to put impressive numbers up in the AHL. Otherwise, he is a average 3rd liner which the Canucks' already have many of.

I'm confused why you guys have not expected elite potiental for a 1st rounder take at pick 13. Whereas, Perry was taken 28th in the first round. So why not expect elite potential from Sven? eg Marty St louis

because if he was he would still be in calgary

Don't forget that Vey's AHL numbers are better than any of our other prospects.

Hard to not have good numbers when you're feeding passes to Pearson and Toffoli.

To be clear, that's what I perceive his potential to be.

Whether he reaches that or not is another matter altogether.

He has to play for the Canucks right from the start of the next season or clear waivers.

3rd & 4th line minutes & press box time did not help his progression in Calgary, maybe it will in Vancouver.

Unless you think he can play 2nd line LW.....

Higgins has been our 2nd line LW for the entire season and he can't play as a 2nd line LW. As long as he shows Desjardins that he isn't a liability, along with a consistent effort (something he supposedly needs work on), it isn't a stretch to think he could be in the top-6 relatively quickly.

On paper...

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - Kassian

Baertschi - Bonino - Vrbata

... looks pretty good considering what we've worked with this season. We'll see how he fairs during camp.

What are you talking about re-read the thread your posting in, im confused why you expect him to be elite, telling us when he was drafted doesnt help neither does stating other established players ppgs

Perry was taken in one of the deepest drafts in NHL history.

Edit: Not arguing against Sven. Just pointing it out.

Then he would have been traded for more than a 2nd.

I feel like desiboy is one "running with scissors" incident away from no longer being with us.

If you actually expect him to be a perrenial scorer then you need to explain why

Travis Green's style will set him up beautifully for what we need in the big club. He'll do just fine.

Baertschi has a higher offensive upside than Higgins but cannot match his defense and consistency yet.

Yep, I mentioned as much in my post.

My point was more that our LW depth is pathetic right now and (if he can work on his defensive game + shift-to-shift effort) there's no reason he can't surpass Chris Higgins on the depth chart.

Well... I say that but Higgins still(!) gets more top-6/PP time than 16-goal man Shawn Matthias.

Some people just don't have the mental hardware to process things well.

Apparently not...

Looks like Sven is having a great start with Utica that's great to see. He's definitely a playmaker not a shooter. Might look good with McCann in a few years :)
