    I love they're already selling T-shirts (apaprently borrowing both the charitable model and artistic style of Grainne /Tinfoiltuque's "The Flow" and Pettersson shirts) after his first game. :laugh: Legend.

    There's also the fact that the 2017 NHL draft simply might not be very good, especially depth wise.

    This saucerman stuff is really weird... A PTO that has played. 1 game ........

    Pretty much tells me fans are looking for anyone to watch or root for..... Also tells me most of the players on the team are not too popular other than Boosh, Archie, Demko and Big Mac....

    Might be but it appears that in this day and age if a guy can't skate he doesn't have a chance.

    And that's not to say he can't improve his skating...many players have. But he'll need to work hard at it.

    Welp, that's probably the last we see of Palmu.

    Agree! maybe a closer look at the players who have worked hard without much fanfare. Blujus spent the summer getting stronger and recovering a promising career despite a coach's best efforts to crash and burn all while caring for his father with ALS...now that's a story and worth a t-shirt

    A bit early to say this. And Lind was picked above Comtios, Formenton & Andersson-Dolan who all look like NHL players from that 2nd round alone.

    Gadjovich and Lind are both probably in the bottom 5 guys of the 31 players selected in that round right now.

    Were you responding to something? Do you know what taking the moral high ground even means? Taking issue with a poster calling “nice guys” turds just because he dislikes their ability to play hockey in the NHL is not taking the moral high ground, at least not to me. But you may have a lower standard of morality which is fine.

    I agree. His first steps quickness was a weakness and looks like it still needs a lot of work. The Canucks reportedly really like his hockey iq so he can be quicker once he gets better at reading and anticipating plays at this level as well.

    He does have a much taller frame to grow into compared to Reid Boucher and I think Lind has better puck skills. Boucher has a shot that Lind will never have. They really aren’t comparable players.

    So is Utica bad for prospect development or do Lind and Gadjovich just not cut it?

    The way Johnson talks the player development program going on in Vancouver is a phenomenon and we should all trust the process

    "I am not taking the moral high ground, I just have higher moral standards than you."

    This has to be self parody.

    That's how I felt about Lind, too. Other than his skating he had a well-rounded skill set by 19YO WHLer standards.

    You can criticize player development when a player starts well and goes nowhere - like a Jordan Subban.

    Lind and Gadjovich aren’t even close to keeping up with the AHL pace and wouldn’t be playing more than a fringe role for any AHL squad.

    I’ve kinda defended Johnson in the past but when he said last night that Lind was ‘playing up in the lineup’ you actually do have to question if he’s watching the games.

    I am under the impression that Johnson will pretty much say anything to make himself look better........ I am not impressed with him at all........

    This is a thing that you see a lot in conservative political commentary, climate change denial, anti-vax, and other places where people realize they don’t actually have - or aren’t capable of generating- a real argument, but lack the ability to accept this, and so they end up just running around feigning shock, and gasping “how dare you” all day long about weird tangential elements of a conversation.
