Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Tryamkin, Sep 4, 2017.
Rasmus Dahlin vs Elias Pettersson today.
STL misses playoffs. Wins draft-lotto. 2018 1st overall pick, Flyers draft Rasmus Dahlin;
Brayden Schenn traded for 2017 1st RD Pick (Morgan Frost), and 2018 1st RD Pick (Rasmus Dahlin).
One of the worst trades in the modern NHL era though still.
EDIT: NVM. If it is in the top-10 STL can defer to 2019; I forgot about what the condition was till I just looked it up. Still.
Future Canuck team mates,,, nice
Most points by a U18-defensman in SHL!
Just scored a goal.
Lost in the shuffle of Pettersson's record is Dahlin is tied for 2nd for the best U18 year of all time.
If the Canucks get this kid...... please hockey gods. Please.
how many games does he have left?
One game left of the season.
Wow, it seems like it's way tougher to score in the SHL as a young player than in the FEL. Barkov scored at almost ppg pace in his draft season in the FEL.
Its a much better league.
Had he been trusted with first pp unit minutes at all during the season Nilsson's record would've been shattered.
Would love to see him and Barzal out there together.
Not really at least according to CHL.
The Canucks need him most... Tickets are going on sale for 9-13 dollars... attendance has been the worst in decades.... and outcry of consecutive sold out seats with ($250 Dollar Tickets minimum) back in 2011. Vancouver may be a big market but it's clear we are now struggling with interest in the team. Dahlin will change this if we do get him and help this market recover.
Generally speaking young players in Sweden rarely get's put in a position to lead the way, restrictive swedish coaches is a thing.. So whenever it happens it's kind of a big thing
But we're also talking about Barkov. A premier prospect then, a premier NHL player in todays league. In my book he's soon going to be a top 5 forward in the league.
20P for Dahlin. With less than a period to go in the regular season, he is one point back of Nilsson's mark.
Damn this kid is going to be a treat to watch
Please let him fall to the Canucks.
Petterson & Dahlin future would be a dream come true.
Finishes the season with 20 points - the second-highest U-18 total in league history
Let's see what he can do in the playoffs, he played well last year, despite the team collapse in the semis.
For defencemen or any position?
This one was a beauty. (assist today vs Brynas)
