Gudbranson currently an asset, playing in the NHL, no? Would you rather Griffin Reinhart?

Jonathan Dahlen is a beaut!
Gudbranson was not traded for Griffin Reinhardt

Maybe he is. Maybe he isn’t.

Both him and Pettersson are ranked high, and deservedly so, but the NHL is a big step up from the big ice of the SHL, and even more so from the second tier league Dahlen is currently playing in. We have seen plenty of highly touted Europeans and Russians come across and find the NA game difficult to adjust to.
Agreed.

As a Canuck fan I am happy our prospects are doing well in what ever league they are in but until they play 2 seasons in the NHL we do not know what we have. One thing for sure none of this make a genius out of anyone.
Odds are good for Elias Pettersson, dude is about to break the Sedins and Peter Forsberg's SHL U20 scoring records, his PPG is already better than those aforementioned.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I would actually say as much as 3 seasons. That sophomore slump is a real thing that has to be considered. If Boeser only scores 20 goals next season do we give up on him and call him a flash in the pan rookie? Or do we wait and see how he bounces back in year 3?

Pettersson is on TSN2 right now, 1st period, no score.
Well, they lost this game 2-0. It was a Championship game.
Per: Can you weigh in on this when your about?
What I noticed more than anything was the unbelievably long shifts by the Swedish coach, all game.
Is this normal?
Seems to me shorter shifts, like in the NHL, would have made a world of difference.
Well, different teams have different strategies. Seems to work pretty OK for Växjö though, who lead the SHL and reached the Champions Hockey League final. The Finns defended well, but you may have noticed the disputed non-goal, which would have tied the game. A Växjö player stopping right in front of the crease and then being pushed into the goalie by a Finn just as Växjö scored. Imho there was no contact with the goaltender inside the crease before he got pushed, and thus the goal should stand, but I guess it's a 50-50 call which really could go either way. Shrug. First time a non-Swedish team wins the CHL, btw.


I said earlier I was hoping for Elias to win a historic five golds this season, but both the WJC and the CHL ended with silvers, and he didn't make the Olympic team, which I think he should have in the absence of NHL players. Oh, well. He still has a shot at winning SHL and World Championship golds.

Yeahno, when I responded to YOUR post with "LMAO now it's 2 seasons"

... it was a reference to YOU moving YOUR goalposts. :mex:

What happened to YOU saying:

"First these prospects must play in the NHL rather than other leagues before we know what we have".

Why don't we just wait until players retire before we decide "what we have". :P

Why don't we just "decide 'what we have'" now and anoint all our prospects as generational talents before they (or many of them) have played a single game in the NHL. :P

Way more reasonable than your suggestion. :lol:
