    Evidently Juolevi had an off-season surgery prior to his draft season. No injury history before playing there, however.

    So this occurred just prior to joining the OHL. I personally haven't seen this documented anywhere (I dont believe anyhow), would love to read more about this if you have anything handy. I wouldn't call that chronic however. What was the surgery on?

    I think Baumer dropped the ball last night.

    Edler was obviously having a off/seniors night and OJ was getting up ice and contributing to the play offensively. Looked very much like a player poised to potentially set someone up for a goal and then gets stapled to the bench so we could watch Edler fade down the stretch from an off night to begin with.

    Gotta go with the young legs Nolan. Not every night. Obviously Edler is still a better player but last night made no sense.

    Even though Edler had an off night, I thought he was unfairly criticized on that first goal..Certain areas of the ice were not up to snuff, and the puck was bobbling over players sticks, causing all sorts of odd man rushes for both teams.
    Edler had his stick on the ice to receive that pass from Miller, and the puck just danced over his stick.

    The goal didn't have anything to do with my observation

    Love that Juolevi is becoming the player the believers thought he would be.

    Another amazing draft pick by Jimbo. :) :) :)

    I missed last game and have seen a bunch of praise for his play, then I see he only played 10 minutes last game? Disappointing to see he hasn’t fully earned Green’s trust

    Juolevi has been rock solid for the Canucks in the last five games.....along with Hoglander, he might be the best story from this sad-sack season, if he can keep it up.

    Amazing pick? From the same draft Sergachev, McAvoy and Chychrun are all bona fide 1st and 2nd pairing D men playing in all situations. Juolevi is nowhere close.
    I was pretty down on him and he is showing signs of prgress but maybe pump the breaks a little.He is still getting walked each game

    Not many people took personal issue to Juolevi, just that he wasn't the BPA and that was obvious at the time.
    All that said, Benning's incompetence shouldn't rub off onto people's perceptions of Juolevi. He's still a promising young dman who could still improve to be a top 4. Doesn't matter what type of fan you are, everyone should hope that OJ can become a top 4.

    Definitely inspiring hope and playing well, and I'm cheering for him.

    But calling him an "amazing" pick considering what we could have picked at his spot is straight silly.

    I thought it was his best, most confident game.

    I’d written Tropicana off a long time ago.

    If he amounts to a solid NHLer at this point it’s better than nothing.

    Hoglander's been like this pretty much the whole season to date - forget just the last five games. Granted, far easier position to play (winger vs D) but he's often the guy carrying his line vs the one being carried.

    Coaches need to better identify when a guy is going. And OJ was going good last game. He should have played double the minutes.

    Yo'Levi has been somewhat like 'found money'. He has been pretty solid defensively and his outlet passes have been as advertised, but there are also surprising glimmers of what he may become like his hard shot, mid-ice hitting and him joining the rush.

    It will be interesting to see where Tryamkin will play when he arrives...

    To be fair, Green looking after his best interests (his job). Keeping it requires the team to be doing better in the standings. His time horizon is pretty short.

    Yup. Green being a lame duck is certainly going to affect him. But, in that last game we were down a goal, and OJ was going good in the transition and o zone. Green needs to identify that and play the guys who are going, depending on the game situation of course.

    Yeah, I was shocked to see Juolevi only played 10 minutes. I noticed him a lot in that icetime (mostly for the good - there was getting burned by Ehlers, but Ehlers is also a damn good skater and player).

    Would like to see Juolevi get some more ice time to show what he can do a bit more.
