    Don't come here with your common sense, Ep obviously will never be good- we should took Liljegren clearly:sarcasm:

    Liljegren will end his career with more cups so I don't get the joke.

    Loooool, knee slapper. Fans like you are the reason no body likes the leafs. I'll take our record breaking SHL mvp, you can keep your sub .4ppg AHL defenseman.

    The ignorance, or lack of insight is obvious on this one.

    Weren't you the antagonist by bringing up Liljegren and taking a shot at him out of nowhere?

    Was literally just the first defenseman that came to my head, but sure if you so.

    Was simply pointing out the fact that everyone rips on EP for being skinny when he's clearlt got superstar talent and the ability to be the best in the draft- Liljegren happens to be a "safe" pick who could have gone at 5 like EP and nobody woulda batted an eye. I named someone who is simply the opposite of EP and you guys jump on it like I ran over Matthews

    Sorry but those comparisons are all over the place. A 5th rounder who is shorter and listed at a higher weight, a 2nd rounder who plays a completely different game and is clearly way stronger, the best hockey player of all time who played in a very different era, and... a basketball player?

    You're right about the last paragraph but it doesn't change the fact that Pettersson looks like he still has a long way to go physically. If he was a 5th round pick no one would be "freaking out" about his strength because everyone would assume he's several years away. When people are predicting he'll be a superstar from day 1 in the NHL next season, that's when it makes sense to be concerned that he won't be strong enough.

    Are people actually still ****** worried about Pettersson’s weight? :laugh:

    For all you non athletes out there, weight isn’t that important, muscle mass is. Putting on a ton of weight can actually mess with your balance and agility and coordination. Pettersson will be a superstar.

    25 goals 40 assists next year with a Calder. Just you wait.

    ... Muscle mass = "the weight of muscles" = weight.

    And in hockey, there is some benefit to non-muscle weight, see Big Buff.

    That would be a mild disappointment with all the type, out of a 20-year-old. Compare to Barzal.

    Doesn't take long for a twig to get snapped. Just watch Liljegren get pounded into the boards in the Calder finals, played timid as hell the first four games.

    25 goals and 40 assists playing with currently Brandon Sutter as his Center is God like. Until we get an actually #2 Center to play with him, he won’t produce to his potential

    You surely sound like a personal body trainer, explain to me how are you going to gain muscle mass without adding weight?

    Also, Just because muscle mass=weight of muscles=weight doesn’t mean that is what is meant. Virtanen put on a ton of weight two off seasons ago and that just slowed him down big time. Big Buff is just the exception not the norm.

    Guys the reason that people still question his weight is because Pettersson is so good and skilled, they literally can't find any other thing to call out. He has no weaknesses in the game of hockey in terms of passing, shooting, dangling, skating, puck handling, iq, etc. so they just comment about weight to show us their saltiness.
    Deep down, they're just jelly ;)

    I really don't see Elias having the hockey IQ necessary to become a top-6 producer in the NHL but I do think he'll turn out to be an excellent bottom-6 energy guy. Very fun to watch though.

    He's trolling, but I honestly can't blame him. Too many Canucks fans are overly sensitive to even the slightest criticism of EP. I'm a Canucks fan myself and even I'm tempted to bait them :laugh:

    The way I read it here is less Canucks fans are worried about his weight hurting him than fans of other teams are praying it does.

    It’s going to be Petterssons 19 year old season if he plays in the NHL next year.
    Barzals rookie season was his d+3

    *scoffs* but Pettersson is an SHL champ and SHL playoff MVP and also has a World Championship gold.

    Why is Liljegren being talked in a Pettersson thread? Yall should go to the Liljegren thread

    Jets fan with no horse in this race....

    Bashing Peterson for is size is dumb. He does not have an NHL body but he will get it sooner rather than later. No issues at all regarding skill or hockey IQ. He has first line centre written all over him. Is he on the Matthews level? No. Is he very close? Yes. Anyone that breaks Forsberg's records needs to be taken really seriously.

    What Canucks fans should worry more about is the overall depth in the system. Other than Peterson and Boeser no one has really elite level potential. i think after that there is a serious drop off. The Leafs have done a much better job of stockpiling picks and depth.

    The Canucks really need one more year of hard tank and and a few more picks they need to hit on. I have no idea why Tanev has not been traded yet for youth.
