    I hope he's a very safe player, always bailing out his partner when they're in trouble. Like if they fell down a well.

    It is never a bad decision for a defenseman to play for Kelowna. They’ve produced a great amount of quality NHL defensemen.

    Could you maybe list a few of the best that came from there in your opinion? I have this recollection generally too, but can’t point out any specific player at the moment.

    Webber, Souray, Keith, Edler, Myers, Barrie, Hannon, Schenn, Gorges, Severson, maybe Bowey, Johansen and Foote. They seem to produce a quality NHL defencemen every few years. Kind of their bread and butter.

    Well, those are not proven NHL players yet. What I meant was exactly a list of the proven NHL players from the past. But Daximus did already provide an impressive list that I was looking for. Keith being the absolute crown jewel out of all the names. Thanks for the list @Daximus! :)

    What kind of Finnish last name is Thomson, surely it can't be common?

    Currently 39 Thomsons in Finland so very rare indeed.

    I was at the game last night. That was a really nice goal he scored. Definitely a good offensive d-man. Has a bit of work to do in his own end, but then again the entire team does. I have no idea how we were awarded the Memorial Cup for next year. There is going to be some moves made for sure.

    How would you compare Thomson to Korczak stylistically? And who do you like more?

    I don’t go to many games. 1 last year and 1 so far this year. I loved Korczak last year. He seemed willing to wheel with the puck and moved it well. This year he seemed to be playing it a bit safer vs Seattle. Not really looking to skate it out, more looking for the breakout pass.
    Thomson was definitely more of the free wheeler last night. The team is a little weak this year and they have trouble getting it out of their zone. Thomson was skating it out when he got the chance to and did it well. Has some work to do in his own end but I believe he was playing with Brayden Chizen and it’s hard to be good in your own zone with him as a d partner.
