 Your expert opinion comforts me 

 

Pretty sure if he made the first All-star team we would all care what the OHL thinks.  Why shouldn't we? 

For the reason I stated immediately after that comment. He played on a significantly worse team and put up the same amount of points. Had he been on a team with Tkachuk, Marner and Dvorak again this year, he would have had way more points and would have made the first All-Star team.

Indeed. The more he plays the better.

Fair.  Although saying the team was significantly worse is a stretch,as a team they only scored I think about 25 less goals than they did last year.

25 goals is significant I'd say.

There was a tier of similar players after the top 5 and Jake would have been right at that next pick of BPA according to Bob McKenzie, who surveys multiple scouts to make a "consensus" list. I would argue that McKenzie's list would be the true BPA as he does survey multiple scouts and ranks accordingly. Therefore, according to McKenzie Virtanen was the "consensus" seventh best player of that draft.

 

1. Ekblad

2. Reinhart

3. Bennett

4. Draisaitl

5. Dal Colle

6. Ritchie

7. Virtanen

8. Fleury

9. Nylander

10. Ehlers

11. Kapanen

12. Larkin

In regards to Juolevi, I'm glad he will be working out here in Vancouver with their trainers. Judging by his comments, he'll be here just for a little while before going back to Finland. At least he'll get specific direction on workout and nutrition. Also a bonus getting coached and mentored by Sami Salo! Salo was probably the most underrated defenseman of the Sedin era... he was rock-solid defensively, could move the puck up with simple passes, and had enough offensive prowess to be out there on the powerplay and fire his cannon of a shot. Hopefully Juolevi can learn not just how to shoot better and harder but also insight on what it takes to be a pro and how to handle the position and physicality of the game.

ok you're right, I stand corrected!  thanks!

He made the 3rd team. Who cares what the OHL thinks, the guy is a stud.

 

Keep in mind that Olli kept the same statistics on a team that went from having 3 players hit over 100 points (121,116,107), to the top 3 players having less than 90 (86,72,66). That is progression.

If he made the 1st team, OHL MVP, CHL MVP, was named best CHL D, etc etc we would all care.

Rewatching some of the Knights games recently, I can't help but notice how good Victor Mete is (100th overall, MTL 2016). I'm beginning to question who is the better defenseman between Mete and Juolevi, and talking to some of the Knights fans and season ticket holders they were about equal this season.

OJ, hands down. 

 

He was the all round guy.  OJ's game is hard to evaluate but it is clean and crisp. He does a lot of smart things from body positioning, stick work etc. The less eye catching and the stuff it takes years for many players to learn to be successful pros. 

 

I dont think many people will fully appreciate OJ's game and how well rounded it is compared to his peers.  Once he adds size and strength, he will seemlesy transition into a key cog of our defence. 

 

Of course that is IMO.  I am not a season ticket holder, but really like OJ's game.  He wasn't my choice, but he has turned me into a believer.

Flash vs substance. OJ allows Mete to play the way he plays.

Did you notice who was on the ice at critical points in the games? That tells you who Hunter thinks is his best d-man.

Definitely. 

Surprised he doesn't get bored of the schtick.  He is so transparent - ever post, every thread it is the same thing.   He clearly thinks he is being clever I guess.
