    Hey at least these are just random youtubers, in Ottawa one of our biggest hockey writers wrote a piece trashing the Karlsson pick when it happened. Sadly that is just the standard of writing we generally get.

    In his defense I think almost everyone got it wrong with Karlsson except Ottawa's management.

    Can't watch past the third clip. Petterson was the BPA in terms of talent and if these guys dont understand that thats the proper way to draft in the top 10 idk what theyre doing . Petterson was my favorote prospect going into that draft.

    Also can these guys put any effort into their videos? Grainy video with bad sound quality. Have some pride in your work

    Pettersson played in Allsvenskan (2nd league in Sweden) not SHL when he was drafted

    I never understood why so many people feel the need to have an opinion on everything. This happens every year with draft picks. An "off the board" pick is made an people go bananas, when most of them never saw the player in question play. Meanwhile teams are scouting these kids on a consistent basis and have a lot of resources doing it.

    That is absolutely correct...drafted 2017 (2019 NHL Draft)

    And he was playing in the 2:nd league (In Sweden)

    He had 41 points (19 goals, 22 assists)...Pretty good for a kid not old enough to buy beer in Sweden.

    Allsvenskan also > OHL. Nearly a PPG by a 17 year old in that league is fantastic. By comparison, Mikael Backlund was a 1st round pick in 2007 after he scored 3 points in 18 allsvenskan games. Also Patrik Berglund was drafted in 1st round in 2006, when had scored 4 points in 21 allsvenskan games.

    The step between the SHL and Allsvenskan isn't that big. A handful of teams in allsvenskan have played in the SHL in just the last few years. Even my local team (one of the best in division 1, Sweden's tier 3), would be able to win a game here and there if they played in the SHL. So the gap between the leagues here isn't close to the NHL > AHL > ECHL at all.

    Pretty sure like 99% of people knew that Vancouver was gonna take Pettersson no matter what, and wasn’t there like an interview where they said if they had the #1 pick they still would’ve picked him. Man, people are dummmmb.

    A lot of Rangers fans were very high on Pettersson and wanted him with the 7th overall pick.

    I wanted Pettersson and Brannstrom among the swedes over Lias Andersson at the time. I honestly didnt think Andersson was an option for us at #7. Didnt feel like his potential was high enough, but he has done fine so far, but not great.
    Point per game in the AHL this season so will be interesting to see if he can take the next step and be a legit top 6C in the NHL in the future.

    From the reports i have heard, NYR was going to take Pettersson or Makar at 7 if any of them were available, but they got picked so they drafted Andersson.

    canucks had a deal in place to trade down to 8 but once NYR traded to 7 they got cold feet

    most people thought they were taking Glass, there are some embarrassing takes in the first draft thread. as for the 1oa, they never said who they would have taken just not nico or nolan

    Guess what...I´m a Swedish Ranger fan....and Ranges Euro scouting sucks. I really don´t know why they have a job. Lundqvist....yeah...great scouting...but other then that.

    "We could go with Gabe Vilardi, future Jonathan Toews... and we pick this guy!?"

    Haha, okay bro. All these people on Youtube that have so strong opinions about a pick they have no clue about. Pathetic.

    The Hockey Guy is actually a pretty good Youtuber. I might not always agree with all he says, but he’s a great hockey mind.

    Is he though? Most of his videos are just him repeating the score and who scored and saying "thats good" or "thats bad". He's not very in-depth.

    Been watching the hockey guy since 2016. I like how he does his videos. No screaming or early/mid/late video sponsors

    Was why did people think Pettersson was so off the board? I had my top 5 as Hishier, Patrick , Heiskanen, Vilardi and Pettersson. I thought they were going to pick Vilardi at the time but all the overreaction was crazy.

    It's still a league where he played against men, which is the point made by someone in that video. It's not a junior league.
