eumpin yiminny that Hoglander is good.

 

Swedish skilled players are very entertaining to watch.

It is exciting, but I remember similar vids of shirokov for example.  I am going to temper my expectations until he proves he can do this at NHL game speed .

He's 18. Eighteen...

 

That should always be the case. With the exception of the one to three truly elite players each year...

 

Nils played the entire year, starting at 17, against 20 & 24 year old men in Swedens best league. Tempered expectations? They did say he kept up speed & physically. Had trouble scoring, vision, using other players at that level. But was not a liability. Still managed 6 or 7 goals, as many assists. Probably digging in, and cutting to the net as we saw in those drills. I expect he'll double that this year.  He'll carve up younger comp at the WJC's.  But it will be interesting to see if his hockey sense tunes back in against players his own age? 

 

What I can say? That type of agility and strength on the puck, control, sheer power, endurance is ridiculous! He'll feast on puck battles. Hockey sense, instinct no, but that athlete is Crosby, Mackinnon stuff. I don't have to temper any projection that there will be a place to deploy him effectively in the NHL.

 

Nils Hoglander wont lose too many races to the biscuit.  He may not have the advanced instinct & hockey processing (yet). Raw athletic skill is off the charts!

 

Looks like Arvidsson to me.

I'm not saying for one second he won't be a great player 4 us  possibly , and not comparing him to shirokov . I'm saying we have had allot of great prospects that came with exciting YouTube video s that didnt translate well for various reasons , so personally,  I try and tempor my expectations more then I used to until I see them play at the NHL level. No doubt he is a very exciting,  talented prospect though. I think he could possibly be one of the biggest steals if all turns out well.

All fair cup. Very.

 

Jake scored 43 goals, had wicked speed in his draft year.  Never seen it since. The goals that is. Which also reflects your point about hype & expectation.  

 

All I was saying?  Look to the raw athleticism.  Jake still has a job in the NHL on that basis. Which was predictable.  Funny enough, I made a very similar observation his draft year. The athlete would translate if the rest did not? This kid is an even more noticeable freak of nature, by a good margin. Which is saying something. As is demonstrated compete level.

 

It really has not much to do with ''video's.''  But that he will have capacity to outcompete most NHL athletes in all the battles that take place.

 

I am saying it gives him a very high floor.  Of course just my opinion.

 

Cheers!

I was recently watching The Boys on Amazon.  The entire time I heard someone speak of Homelander (The character above) I kept thinking of Hoglander to myself for some reason.They kind of look alike :lol: Maybe that is why.

Hoglander will be our highlander!
