Benning isn't on record saying Pettersson "Isn't" ready to play in the NHL next season, says "IF he isn't ready" he can play in Utica. I've been as avid a listener as anyone to JimBro of late. Benning has been saying recently that at least 3 rookie prospects could be on the team next season, he is referring to the grouping of Pettersson, Gaudette, Juolevi, Dahlen and Demko

Super Scout Gradin says Pettersson and 2016 draft alumn - Dahlen could have played in the NHL this season. Can't disagree with that when you consider Pettersson is dominating against mem right now in one of the best leagues outside the NHL

Super scout Gradin????

Keep them coming Dude!

Gradin has been one of our top European scouts for YEARS. His track record, despite Hank, Dank, Mutt, and Edler, coming from his scouting region, is tied to the franchise’s record. Gillis wasn’t a scout. Some of the players that he picked that turned out to be complete duds would have been highly recommended by “super scout Gradin”.

You truly do hate Swedes don't you? You do realize that the role of the GM at the draft is the "final say" (the buck stops here) everything must pass through me. You also realize that Gradin is one of the European Scouts on staff and that there is quite a large scouting department in every NHL team. Gradin did not have the say above all the scouted regions, he had a say on the European players Gillis drafted like Rodin, etc. How many Euro's did Gillis draft in the first 3 rounds of his 6 drafts?

Inge Hammerstrom is the brains behind the Pettersson pick, not Gradin

I remember when all the analytic nerds & armchair GM's were going on about how the team must choose Glass ha.
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."

Bubbles wanted Vilardi, like he wanted Ritchie. Bubbles loves his big, terrible skating forwards. See his love for 2015 draft bust - Dylan Strome (3rd overall pick)

Yup, he wanted Glass or Vilardi...

Hischier
Patrick
Makar
Heiskanen

And instead of picking Glass or Vilardi , Elmer picks Casey Armitage

He can be the number one center on the Special Olympics squad

Glass is 19 pounds heavier. He's thin but Petterson is a bonerack. Just adds to the small soft team that Benning and Linden seem determined to build. Not surprising I guess since they were both butter soft as players. Fuck I wish we could have snagged Hextall as a manager
(from the 2017 Draft Thread)

Hey Blob, would Hextall have drafted your 160 lb Ty Ronning for you? :wink:

Most people wanted Glass or Vilardi. Vilardi btw is tearing the OHL a new one atm. I also wanted Tkachuk in 2016 and that was obviously the correct pick.

Dude please point out where I loved Strome. I just said he is not a bust yet and he patient, you know how we are supposed to be with Virtanen and Juolevi . Strome is ripping up the AHL at the same age Virtanen got 18 points in 65 games. But he’s a bust and Virtanen is a stud. Keep trolling trolls...

In my conversation with HW I said that Super Scout Gradin, good eyeballer of talent stated that he felt that both Pettersson and Dahlen could play in the NHL this season, does he have to be the one who scouted him to say that?

Yeah and Boucher rips up the AHL as well, the problem that you refuse to acknowledge is that Strome can rip it up all he likes in the OHL and AHL, his pour skating will be hard to overcome in todays NHL. Just like VIlardi who is as bad if not worse of a skater than Dylan Strome.

Cool story. Write him off all you want like you did Johansen, Mackinnon, Tavares and probably McDavid before long. He’s younger than Virtanen.

Peruse the boards .... most people were favouring Glass or Vilardi. I’m more asking who these analytic nerds are. Sorry Mod/troll if I wasn’t specific in that.

It’s similar to Gudbranson apologists pissing and crying about analytics nerds being all over Real Gud. Where is this occurring ? I don’t see ANYONE on this board preaching analytics. I for one think the guy is just a very limited player and I can judge that from watching the guy play. I thought he was a far better player than he’s shown. I was obviously wrong.
