The Canucks neeeeeeed elite skillset in the system for when the Sedins bust loose. Elias is that guy. I could care less if he isn't Ryan Clowe along the boards, we have others for that but the mere fact that he's dominating and was leading the Swedish men's league in scoring tells you he's no wuss
Wasn’t what I was saying. I said he needs to go to the high traffic areas more often ,for eg the front of the net and take the puck hard to to the net. That said that goal was him cutting hard to the net so that is very encouraging. I didn’t say dick all about crashing around the boards

Do you wish Elias was more of a pugilist?

That move was filthy and fuck are we overdue for some good luck. That kid is the real deal.

I’m on the Caesars, will chase down with some Andina craft beers, bottle of white with dinner. Nice rib roast doing it on the cue, baked potatoes, asparagus and a green salad. Later on some seafood appies and roll on down to a friends place .... nothing crazy Pacific Blue. Are you rolling down to the Patricia tonight ? Get the honeymoon suite with the hot tub? Errrrr sorry the one with the bathtub

Much better game by Elias. Showing more willingness to work on the boards (still not winning many) and the way he fought off the hook on his break away and still got of the shot was note worthy. Also displayed some speed on the Sedin like long shot of the boards and beat the icing play.

He has that lazy looking big guy stride away from the puck were he looks like he's dogging it but likely isn't.

You could tell he was pissed with himself on the shootout effort.

Sweden's PP is far too stationary.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Lol I said he’s been playing wing this year which he has. I hope he goes back to centre but ultimately he should play where he plays the vest and produces the most. Right now that’s on the wing.

Someone commented on this year's Swedish team that almost all the forwards could play at centre, which allows for the possibility to mix and match quite a bit, if you want to. Pettersson is generally listed as C/RW, but on the powerplay goal he scored on the Swiss, he and Nylander had switched sides, so he was actually playing LW for a bit. Not sure why. Maybe to mess with the opponents' heads a bit?
