Couldn't agree more, not that ive seen him play in person,
but i agree on the b word
No, not really.
We keep drafting that high because the organization is so terrible. Oilers fans have had it far worse than most franchises over the past decade, and getting excited over high draft picks (that we'll likely ruin) is the only thing that keeps us going emotionally.
We literally had a Decade of Darkness, i.e. ten years and no playoffs. We're being collectively held hostage by Katz.
Sorry having a tough time feeling sorry for you guys
Over the last 20 years or so,,the Oilers and Pens i think have won enough cups,,,
Very much like Kucherov/Pastrnak cutting in with a quick move and sniping it in. With his blend of skill, smarts and overall mature game I see him in the running for the Calder.
Actually it's been 28 years since Edmonton won it.
And whose fault is that?
I feel like I should say something but I don’t wanna get banned...
Currently on a 20 game point streak with 40 points during the streak
You’re so nice
If he were a center, he might go 1 OA.
Hopefully Svechnikov will end up being a higher caliber offensive talent. Ovechkin and Malkin need a successor, it would be very disappointing if he ends up as the next Yakupov/Filatov.
If everything goes right, and he backs up his prospect hype, I totally expect from him to be the best Russian player after Ovi and Geno. Doubt he will reach their height, especially their prime but I am totally expecting him to be better than Prime Tarasenko, Kuznetsov, Panarin and yes, Kucherov too.
Not in this world. Kucherov is easily on Ovechkin, Malkin level btw.
Guys like Panarin or Kuznetsov he could challenge. Time will tell.
Id be happy to draft a Kuznetsov-like winger that can hit the NHL immediately too. Just give us the 2nd overall already.
I agree with OP, AS looked like he could be in and around Datsyuk point total. Kuch, panarin and, kuny are nowhere near 8/71
With Eichel and Mittelstadt being centers, a skilled winger makes a lot of sense.
Not bad. Somewhere Steve Kournianos is smiling.
Judging players by point totals? Datsyuk is a better player than anyone in your post.
kucherov in on another level than tarasenko, kuznetsov and panarin. svech won't be better than kuch.
well he did say "if everything goes right". and if everything does go right and he "backs up the prospect hype" theres no reason why svechnikov wont be one of the best wingers in the game
To be fair, those stats could be highly inaccurate, as they use estimated ice time. I don't know exactly how they calculated these, but some formulas that I've seen could skew the /60 statistics against very good players on bad teams by giving them more ice time than they should have.
Certainly not the draft lotteries
So is he actually 20 years old or what
