Podkolzin is everything that I want Virtanen to be. 
Kids a beauty. 
Virtanen - Horvat - Podkolzin 

would be a handful.

Wingers both on there off side for driving the net. 

Virtanen used to play the same way in junior. A lot harder to lean on 220 lb NHL defenseman though.

 

Both will get there just need to be patient.

Podz is in absolute BEAST MODE right now. Lol at folks labelling those critical of his first few games as “haterz”. The dude was not playing at the level he is now. What we are seeing now is a player that will make an impact on the Canucks. What he does the Canucks sorely need...a heavy game along the boards with some very underrated offensive flair. If he can do a “Horvat” and improve his skating stride....look out.

 

We just need to get the kid over here. Hope he can pick up English so that he can more easily meld into our core group of young, high qualiy group of young studs men.

I think this will help elevate Jake's game....to see up and comings doing this sort of stuff.  Might light a bit of a fire....he's got so much potential there.

Absolutely, I’m happy with Jake’s progress. He’s getting better every season.
