    I wonder what it feels like to have 18,000 people mispronounce your name in unison.

    Comparing apples to things that aren't apples... five years down the road do you think it is possible that Pettersson will end up being more valuable to his team than Dahlin?

    Not even just on the ice either... what about at the ticket gate? Do stellar D-men put bums in the seats like elite top line C's? ... if thats what he ends up being.

    Petterson needs the entire team to be his big brother. If they buy in they have something.

    That's fine actually, people don't call Ovechkin "Avechgin" either. There's this guy on Youtube who goes out of his way to say PetterSHon and it just makes me cringe.

    If we look back to all the games he has played this year (going back to prospect games). He has been held scoreless in just 1 game.

    Has 11 points in 7 games if I'm not mistaken if we count all these games?

    It will be interesting to see how it goes as teams try to tighten things up on him but it appears like he's a points machine and will find a way to create legit scoring opportunities at least a handful of times per game. What really sets him apart is how he dogs the puck to get it back and his defensive awareness for such a young player. Will also be interesting to see what this does for Goldobin over the longer term, Pettersson sets a great example of the type of play Green has been preaching to Goldobin and he certainly has never played with someone of this caliber.

    His goal and Goldobin's happened right in front of me the other night, it really was something to experience live.

    If Pettersson is to be a Calder candidate this year, I imagine he's going to duel with Miro Heiskanen, who will be boosted by a team that is much better than ours:



    Maybe mark these dates down:

    December 1st @ home
    March 17th @ Dallas
    March 30th @ home

    I've been telling my people all summer that Heiskanen is just as good a prospect as Pettersson. Both just incredible hockey players. I hope they both have healthy long careers full of harware, but with Pettersson collecting the Calder!

    Didn’t Elias himself say it was pronounced that way this past summer?

    Ya I think it's going to come down to how many points Heiskanen and Pettersson puts up. Assuming both are healthy, if Heiskanen puts up something along the lines of 10+ goals and ~40 points playing top 4 minutes on a playoff team, Pettersson might need a 70 point and or 35+ goal season to clinch it. On the bright side, it seems the Pettersson hype has been spreading and I anticipate that Pettersson will have the much fancier highly reel for the voters to consider.

    Winning teams gets people in seats.

    I wouldn't go to a Canucks game if we had McDavid or Ovechkin or whoever but still sucked.

    He did. Elias said that in English it’s Peterson the same way Jordan Peterson’s last name is pronounced.

    Helps that Heiskanen is playing for a team like Dallas rather than a major market team, especially eastern, like Toronto, Montreal, Boston etc.

    Almost correct but the "r" is not pronounced. I would just stick with the English pronounciation though.

    He should spell it like that then, makes no sense

    Pettershawn would be MUCH clearer way to spell it

    Going through part 1 of the Pettersson thread is HILARIOUS. So many great armchair GMs going crazy over the pick.

    Funny, I went through it and thought most people were fairly ok with the pick. Some super excited, most saying Pettersson wasn’t their top pick but he was an intriguing pick. A couple did freak out, one quite emphatically.

    Not as bad as you’re suggesting.

    I just did the same because of your post. Yes, pretty funny. At the time I had no idea one way or the other as I haven't had the time to follow much aside from the Canucks and occasional goings on around the NHL and I often find myself questioning how much other people here actually watch these kids considering how opinionated they are when it's tough enough for guys getting paid to project how teenagers will ultimately pan out.
