Trade chip for a RHD prospect or top line minutes to get used to the NA game in Abbotsford this year. Either way, the future is bright for him.

Nah man he's a third line winger to start the year

I remember watching this, seeing him snipe, seeing him fight, and thinking: holy crap, this guy is like Petey and Bo and Ferland in one!

Here's Scouch's report from his rookie year.  He seems to have addressed some of the concerns he had .....

Very excited to see how he performs this upcoming training camp. He seems to be in great shape. Has a great motor, utilizes his playmaking and shot well, and his forechecking and backchecking is absolutely off the charts. Can’t wait to see him finally hit the ice in blue and green! Go Podz!

He’s like a Russian tkachuk

One thing I noticed is that in a puck battle he's usually the one leaving with the puck on his stick and the other guy is usually flat on his back. Looking forward to watching him more regularly for sure!

Cool video.  
I love how the kid goes to the net.  
Half of that video he was making moves in the tough areas of the ice with daily little issue.  
That’s a tough kid right there.

Some top opposition lines won't see the puck when Green sends out Podz, Hoagie and Dicky to line match in home games

I really hope that's the line they go with.

My gut tells me that's where they'll start. A lot of posters have Garland bumping Pearson from Bo's line, but I think Green will go with the established chemistry between Bo and TP, and that Nils will start the season with Dickinson and Podkolzin.  For sure that'd be a fun line to watch, and hard to play against.

Going to call it now...

 

Podkolzin will have an impact like that of Brock Boeser.  He's going to deliver 25+ goals and 25+ assists while barreling over unsuspecting d-men.  This man-child is a lion and will blow the doors off opposing teams and will be a serious Calder candidate.  He was touted as a top five pick in his class and he will prove that to be correct.

 

I'm super stoked about what Podkolzin brings to the roster.  Can't wait for the season to start.

His size, strength and body positioning is great, he usually skates away with the puck, or delivers a punishing hit.

 

A line of:

 

Hoglander - Horvat - Podkolzin

 

could be pretty tough to play against. I hope they move Pearson down to the 3rd line.
