I know, eh! I have to admit that when looking at all his accolades from last year I thought "but it's only the SHL." Sorry Per.

Pettersson tied for 8th in the league in goals at 9 (P. Kane leading with 11).

The only player scoring at a goal-a-game pace!

Pettersson tied for 20th in the league in points at 15 (Rantanen leading with 24).

Strange that he's not racking up the assists as fast, considering he's such an elite playmaker.

It will be interesting to see what this #40 kid can do once he adapts to the North American game.

No, I get it. You still have to worry about the transition.

But what gave me hope and made me pick him for my yahoo fantasy league; as a teenager in the SHL, he outscored Kent Nilsson, Peter Forsberg, Markus Näslund, Mats Sundin, Patrik Sundström, Håkan Loob, the Sedin twins, Henrik Zetterberg, Tomas Gradin - yeah, every single one who has ever played there. And that in a much tougher era. I mean, Kent Nilsson and Tomas Gradin played against 70's style goalies with skinny pads, relying entirely on instinct. And he outscored them, playing against modern goalies.

That told me he is something else. Something very special.

And frankly, the players I mentioned above did fairly well in the NHL.
Elias Pettersson has the potential to outshine them all.

You can't get assists playing with guys that don't score. :drink:


Boeser might help ihim mprove that stat! 8-)

Being a Canuck fan I’m waiting for Butthead to say there was an irregularity in draft and we have to do a redo.

How did the Canucks get so lucky.

I lost count of how many good chances Goldobin missed with Pettersson serving. A rejuvenated Boeser will definitely improve Pettersson's assists.

A vicious crosscheck to Boeser’s back that had him down for a minute then hobbled on the bench. Flashes of last year. But he didn’t miss a shift.


There a couple of other little things with no response from the team at all.
The only HW the Canucks need
