By next year though he needs to try and apply those same skills on N. American size ice surfaces.
I post this link because it's the only one I can find and if it's to be believed, only Finland has the hybrid ice.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_hockey_rink

If you see this Per, can you verify because I thought a couple more countries used it....
Finland is the only country I know of that allows both NHL and international size rinks in their leagues, but I'm sure there could be more. Especially in countries with few rinks, where they might have to agree on just using whatever is at hand.

In Finland, what happened was that some teams wanted the league to switch to NHL size rinks, while others opposed it, in part because of the cost of rebuilding. A compromise was reached, which meant both versions would be allowed. I like that concept. I think it means that to win the Finnish league you have to have players and coaches that know how to adapt to both types of surface. Typically the game on the smaller surface rewards more physical play while the bigger surface rewards skating skills. By having to master both surfaces, Finnish players ought to become very well rounded players.

Just an assist for Pettersson as Växjö beat local rivals HV71 2-1 in overtime, but Aftonbladet named him first star of the game. Still looking good.

Thanks so much, he is definitely the prospect that I have the most hope for.

Any word on whether he is centering or on the wing, Per?

I'll let Per confirm, but I'm fairly certain that I heard he was on the wing and likely to stay there for the season, as the SEL tends to favour the older, stronger players at centre.

Yeah Växjö Lakers‏ got more proven vets in center.
Rosen
Shinnimin
Froberg
Carnback

But Elias is playing RW first line as an 18 year old, that's pretty good, but when injuries occur I'm assuming they could put him center and/or IF he returns next year.
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."

Nice article on Gaudette
article wrote: "Over the past two years, he's become a better 200-ft player," said Madigan. "His offensive skills were always there and he continues to refine those offensive skills, but he's become a really reliable two-way guy. He's just a hard working, driven kid who wants to score goals and hounds pucks. There's not a lot of things you have to ask him to do on the ice. He just does them."

What I do like is the depth that is being developed.

If we can get another 1-2 top forwards or 1 stud forward plus a top 1-2 d men in the next few years the Canucks are well on their way. This is assuming the current guys like BB, Bo, Bartesch etc. Continue to develop.

Still more than 1-2 years out as it will take minimum of 3 years for recent picks to impact the team.

Even players like Rodin has a place where if they are called upon can come up and contribute for 5-10 games or more due to injury. This has been lacking for a long time.

Yes, a process Genius Jim began when he arrived in Vancouver that only now people are awakening to.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yeah..... no. The depth has only just begun to accumulate. Too many picks pissed away in the first 30 months. Thankfully Elmer has gotten away from that

The way Rodin has been handled has been a travesty. The best player in the Swedish league can’t crack a bottom five team ? Give me a break. Hopefully he lights it up in the AHL and they deal him if the plan is to dick him around.

Anton Rodin is trying to come back from a major injury.

The team has been extremely patient and accommodating.

A travesty??

Are you stupid Forest?
