Holy **** 4 points now
2 easy 4 elias
The plan to put him in the middle to avoid the boards didn't seem to work this game. It looked to me like he was mucking about the boards for at least 2 highlights
yeah but he fell down. too weak
Doesn't mean he can't be as good as Matthews.
Rasmus Dahlin will also be there, so I wouldn't say no doubt, but those two should be the two best at the competition.
Doesn't matter, still makes ridiculous passes even flat on the ice
His play has been extremely encouraging but I'm still not ready to throw lofty expectations on him.
Just doesn't seem right that the Canucks actually have a prospect like this, playing this well. I'm excited to see what he can do against NHL competition next pre-season.
awesome news seeing this, but not gonna jump on the he is Mcjesus level player or anything like that or 90 point. maybe 65-75. he also needs to bulk up, or else he will be ragged dolled.
but maybe their due for on elite player. last time we drafted a true elite offensive player was 18 years ago, (1999) @#$ that's long time.
Funny how were transitioning to a new Swede now.
this team's done very well drafting Swedes and Americans.
I just like that he's a great kid, humble, honest, intelligent, no entitlement and has a good sense of humor. He'll work hard and keep improving. His brother Emil was a 6th round pick kept improving at now at 23 he's a good NHL prospect...imagine if Elias could do that as well. He'll be someone who is easy to cheer for.
A big part of his success is his 200ft game as well, always helps out in his zone and leads the team in +/- at +13.
The thing I find very exciting is the fact that he has yet to actually physically mature, and yet he's doing this great against men in a pretty well structured league.
He'll score two cup winning goals against his former team.
For what he's doing right now, 65p would be his absolute floor.
I don't know if people truly appreciate how unprecedented his point totals are in the SHL.
0.5 ppg would have been a good development year.
0.75 ppg would have been great.
1.0 ppg would have been a phenomenal, record breaking year, trending towards an almost surefire 1st line player.
1.4 ppg is ???
He's trending better than anyone's wildest dreams - he's on pace to absolutely destroy what Forsberg, Backstrom or the Sedins did in their d+1 or d+2 years in the SHL. He's putting up numbers you would expect from a generational talent.
Everyone is just waiting for his hot streak to end and for his numbers to fall back to earth but somehow they keep getting better.
He's putting up generational numbers in the SHL. He will likely break a 40 year record by Kent Nilsson.
totally agreed with your gauge. been following that leauge since 99. Also have to consider the fact, it's not like he is playing with some high scoring linemate. he's doing it himself.
Pettersson already a legend
He is 13 points before the 2nd most scoring player on his team, as a rookie, thats insane
This. I mean just look at Lias Andersson drafted 2 spots after. He's doing amazing in SHL, but points are no where even near Pettersson
Incredible numbers. wow Canucks future gonna be very bright with Juolevi, Pettersson, Boeser, Demko, and Horvat.
Sweden deserves another offensive force. Havent had that since peter forsberg imo
Yes, only Filip Forsberg, Henrik Zetterberg, Sedins, Nylander and Backstrom. And a few other potential 30 goal scorers (Arvidson and Rakell).
Please none of those players are on peter forsbergs level.
Of course not, but they are beasts.
I mean that's a pretty unreasonable standard though...Canada needs another offensive force. They haven't had one since Gretzky.
