    I love the invisible narrative, he's played rather well this year, he's scored at every level he's played. For f sake, people act like he's wearing the predator cloak or something.

    He can't skate
    He is invisible
    He can't carry his team
    He can't score
    All his points are secondary

    Did I leave anything out? It's just funny to read it every time

    At the NHL level that's something I want to see him figure out how to use more often. In his stint with the Rangers he didn't get many chances to use his shot. I think that will come but it's definitely an asset of his that he needs to work into his game

    Andersson scored the opening goal against Denmark in their exhibition game today.

    I am watching the 3rd, Lias is 1+1.

    Can’t find any stats though. Anyone know if there are any stats available from the game?

    Yeah his top end abilities are pretty amazing. Just need to get to be around the puck more.

    He is playing well right now though. Skating better than earlier in the year.

    Lias was named POG.

    you left out

    He's not Mittelstadt
    He's not Vilardi
    He could've been Pettersson
    He was taken 7th overall
    He won a Silver medal

    Good thing we fired AV then or he would probably accuse him of faking a hip injury

    I am not sure if it’s possible to see the full beauty of the play on the gif, it’s not a typical drag-skate-stick move, he hammers the puck hard to his own skate to avoid the stick of the defender.

    That’s fantastic...I will admit I’ve been a bit skeptical, but I’m more than willing to be won over by him. Gives me more confidence going into the upcoming draft.

    He isn’t invisible in these games at least, definitely the goto forward for Sweden. The level of play isn’t bad, but Lias is definitely helped by playing on a team that definitely is a tad better than the opponents. At any level he is really good and so skilled when he gets the puck on the attack. He is good defensively and strong on the puck. But if his line is pushed back Lias still lacks when it comes to turning the play. He isn’t fast enough on his skate to get back fast and drive the play up ice again.

    He is still very young. I love how he has been able to improve his skating intra-season so to speak. We have worked hard with him on it. We had our guys over in GBG when he was there to work with him. I am sure he gets as much time in on it as possible between games (although you can’t run a tough leg and skating practice at least within 48 hours of a game).

    If he can push his skating a lot, the sky is more or less he limit from my POV. If not I think he will become a JT Miller type.

    I am just waiting for the next excuse.

    - The opposition isn't strong enough
    - His linemates are carrying him
    - He is getting favourable matchups

    I have no doubt that Lisa will improve his skating ability. His drive, will, and work ethic is too great for that to be an obstacle.

    It's not just that easy to will yourself to being a better skater, Stove.

    Looks like Lias will be making the team....I believe these exhibition games were just a tryout, no way they will cut him now.
