Once Pettersson takes over centre, maybe Reaves can ride shotgun at times.Ronning's Ghost wrote: ↑Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:53 pmIf the Canucks get Reaves, and Pettersson makes the team, Reaves' value will be maximized by having him ride shotgun with Pettersson and discouraging the sorts of play that will shorten Pettersson's career.
If Gagner can help, that's great, but it's not enough to count on if Pettersson really is the future of the franchise.
A guy like Reaves can discourage crap, even if he's not on that line.
Try to have The Guds out there with Pettersson 5-on-5.
And maybe keep Baertschi and Goldobin thisaway...
Baertschi – Horvat – Boeser
Goldie/Dahlen – Gagner – Pettersson
Lipstick – Sutter – Virtanen
Gaunce – Gaudette – Reaves
Goldie/Dahlen rotate, trade Granlund, Eriksson.
