    I mean, if we're playing that game...




    ;)

    Don't see why you need to talk down Zegras to compliment a very nice play by Broberg though. It's honestly one of my biggest pet peeves on this site, when people rag on one guy in order to praise another.

    To be fair, Zegras is doing it against teenagers and young adults, whereas Broberg is doing it against players quite a bit older than him.

    He is one big dude!! I am hugely impressed for how he can move for such a big guy.

    My point was more about how ridiculous it is to cherry pick one highlight to say that one player is better than another.

    Fair, but arrows are starting to point way up for Broberg.

    Zegras will be a fine player I think. What do the Oilers need more, a top six forward or a potential top pairing D-man?

    I suggest that scoring is not a real issue for the Oilers, better defensive play is the priority.

    See Stamkos v. Doughty or Tavares v. Hedman.

    All good players, but if you get a crack at a top pairing D-man, then you take that player over a top six (or even top 3 forward).

    I didn't rag on him. I would've been ecstatic if we got him and he'll be a good player in the NHL. I said that as a joke obviously lol

    Skating looked pretty good for a guy with "average" skating.

    I know I used Pitkanen as a "best case" comp before but for a more recent example he could be Shea Theodore with that kind of stick handling/skating combo.

    Yeah I thought so (hence the smiley) but wasn't sure, but in general I just get annoyed when people see a highlight of a guy and then uses that to make an argument about another player. Or that because a player made one nice play that suddenly the weaknesses in that player's game doesn't mean anything.

    He's the defenseman that winds it up from behind his own net.

    If many nice plays are made though, it starts to add up, especially if said plays demonstrate improvements in previous weaknesses.

    That what I had hoped when I watched it lol

    That is very true. Although as always, take anything you see in preseason action with a bit of a grain of salt. Not saying he isn't improving (looks like he is), just we constantly get bit by guys who look great in preseason and then immediately vanish in real games.

    Yeah. Right now Pulju and Broberg are tearing up Euro preseason scoring... it means nothing unfortunately.

    I’m picturing him with McDavid and Drai in 3 on 3. Just ridiculous speed.
