    Already four points behind Matthews. I think he needs a goal scorer on his wing as otherwise a lot of his playmaking potential goes to waste in missed goal opportunities. Would a trade for struggling Laine make sense for Carolina?

    Seems he's doing fine without the Canes making any moves.

    He has been amazing. He has became solid 1st line center. Everytime he steps on the ice, something happens. Special player.

    +3 on a 5-4 win. :nod:

    He could be the best Finnish player in the NHL.

    Pulju for Faulk makes too much sense. Then trade Teuvo for McDavid when Oilers realize that they lack wingers and trade McDavid for Laine to reunite PuLa-Aho.

    He no longer has Matthews to carry Aho and carve out his career. Aho's cracks are showing. Sad but true.

    I know that you're kidding with the whole post but Pulju doesn't hold any type of value on his own anymore

    The best Finnish player is still Barkov. Lets see if Aho can keep this up for a whole season before these hot takes.

    But great start as a C for sure from Aho. Great player. Fun to watch.

    Aho has improved his already very good skating. He is fast as the wind and does it all. I am actually most impressed by his backchecking. His offensive abilities has always bee superb, but now he is getting even better on the defensive side(It has always been good though).

    This thread is comical. Entirely.

    I’m not even a Canes fan but I can recognize his skill.

    He is off to a grrrrrreat start. So I have no idea why this thread was created. Bye.

    It could be a good move that wouldn't cost Carolina a lot to trade for Puljujarvi. Aho knows Puljujarvi and could translate what the coach says so Puljujarvi would get it.

    I didn't think I'd ever say this but honestly I might even take Aho over Eichel at this point..

    You sure Puljujärvi understands finnish? He doesnt seem like the brightest out there. Maybe Aho could draw it for him?

    Sebastian Aho is coming out with a bang this season, playing 1C on the Hurricanes. In his first 5 games he has
    4 goals, 6 assists and a +7.
    Hes already good skating has improved and he seems to be all over the ice. His skating actually looked McDavidish today. His backchecking is great and his already great offensive play seems even better. There was some consern over him being able to handle the C position, but the eye-test is proving it wrong( for theese 5 games atleast). I do believe that he will become a Top 10 C in the league some day. Discuss

    Yes, he was a first line forward to begin with and he has successfully transitioned to center. Therefore he is a 1C.

    It’s a huge step forward for the Hurricanes, who haven’t had a real 1C since Eric Staal quit on us circa 2014. Aho filling that slot dramatically changes the dynamics of our roster.
