6'3 right shot - Patrick uber skills, decent skater, two-way workhorse center.
Liljegren game breaker dman.
6'3 right shot - Vilardi slick scorer, creative, center/rw, weakness is he's a slow skater. (granted he's almost a year younger than Patrick tho' )
Yeah that interview with Michael Rasmussen http://www.tsn.ca/radio/edmonton-1260/a ... n-1.612017 dude sounds like a potential beast.Aaronp18 wrote:Yes, they get the same odds as the 3rd worst team in the draft lottery!Lancer wrote:Does Las Vegas pick in this one? If so, we may as well forget about that #1 overall pick. What's the consensus on this Rasmussen kid?
As for Rasmussen, took a little read through this HF thread about him.

Apparently now 6'6" 215lbs. Plays with an edge, definitely a power forward type centre, big net presence, good hands.
If we stay the same at 3rd last by season' end, we could lose the lotto once again (as per tradition, [googles "how to break curses"]) and stay top 5 and we could land this big SOB from BC.
Ras started skating at 5, playing hockey at 6, always a forward, fan of the canucks (parents always had tickets), fave players with Vancity growing up Naslund and Linden.
Working on skating, power skating, and strength & conditioning to get ready for the pro's - speed/strength.
I could see a future one-two punch with Horvat and Rasmussen down the middle for the Twinsition plan.
Ras could center two euro wingers (for ex: grans/rodin) so they can whiz around and score while Ras is the big ol' beast center guy creating havoc in front of the net.
