    I'm not sure if he's comfortable with it but IMO players whose best quality is hockey IQ can play any position.

    Off wing is becoming more and more rare these days. That being said Stone probably could do it. He is a fantastic player.

    Can’t believe he still leads the league in P1/60 (primary points) with 3.01.

    Marner is 2nd at 2.73.

    Elite talent.

    Last night I was going to make a nitpicky post about EP's game but decided against it because he just turned 20 and has only played half an NHL season.

    That stat supports my decision to lay off lol.

    So... From the Matthews deal...

    We can expect EPs next contract to be around 10 mil / year, if everything progresses as expected?

    He’ll make more than Matthews if he progresses as expected; better stats, higher salary cap, worse team.

    Pettersson will take a discount, he can fall back on that sweet Audi RS7 dough.

    25 goals in 44 games.

    He has a legit shot at 40 in just 72 games if he stays healthy. As a ****ing rookie.

    He's a monster obviously, but can he really maintain a 28% shooting%? Nobody has done that over a full season since the 80s.

    His ability to shoot the puck so far has seemed transcendent though. Just crazy to watch.

    I still can't believe how good he is. Since Anton Rodin also won SHL MVP and didn't do well in the NHL. I would have been satisfied with a 9G 18A season. Happy with a 15G 25A
    season. Because the Sedins development took a while. I thought the Canucks would never have another rookie who would produce as well as Boeser did last season and was unable to comprehend how anyone thought Pettersson would get 60+ points before this season started. I have a feeling he has a good chance of winning the Hart and Rocket Richard trophy in the next three years.

    smart people predicted 75 pts in his rookie season, which I doubted


    but I bet they didn't predict 40+ goals

    Before the season, I thought he would get 60-70 points and 20-25 goals.

    He’s destroying those numbers, especially the goals.

    I doubt it lol. Can’t see him going under a ppg.

    He’d have to miss more games to be below that.

    How sweet would it be if he finishes the year with a 40-40 stat line

    He looks a little hesitant after the latest injury. Either he has been told not to engage physically by the coaches, or he is afraid of being injured again. It should show in number of hit statistics (before vs after the injury). Knee injuries are tough and can get into your head ...

    Pettersson upset that he missed the breakaway. And it was unlike him to miss the target.
