He will be developing on the other side of the planet on a different size ice in a style of game that doesn't really emulate North American hockey. Would have gone a different route.
The rest of the picks seem OK considering the entire draft class.
Now that it's over, it seems even more clear that this really was a year to have done whatever it would have taken to get the extra high first round pick.
On the other side of the Universe, light years away. Lol. He played against men last year and will play against men this year. Are you Don Cherry? Old school hockey? Large ice surface? Lol. Look around the league, Mickey. The NHL is littered with excellent Euros who grew up playing on the larger ice, wow it sure is messing up there game.
Listen, the Canucks have enough meh Cody Glass players. He's redundant. What we did need was high end skill down the middle, Glass is not that, Pettersen is. Skill wins
