Canucks, favorite players right now are Yakupov, Schroeder, Sedins, Crosby, Karlsson, Nugent-Hopkins, Benn, Luongo.

Slovakian players for you to watch for are Tatar of Detroit and Marincin of Edmonton.

That guy is truly something special. Karlsson is lightning fast, outskating him is almost impossible and can be very offensive too without needing someone to cover for him. Great on the PP. Amazing playmaker and puckcarrier. Can handle tons of ice-time. So valuable it's crazy...

On top of that 22 years old and was voted best defenseman at 21. What the hell? Sky is the limit for Karlsson

Yeah, giving Lidstrom a serious run for his money, maybe still not as good as Nik on defense though.

Yeah absolutely not as good as Nik on D. That guy had such good position and amazing with his stick. Karlsson still got a lot to learn.


Speaking of that I think Detroit could see some problems this year. Nik is retired, not that many new additions and some of the core players getting older. But everytime I've doubted them they still made the playoffs.


I'm mostly rooting for Detroit but ofc support some swedes too so got a good eye to Vancouver, Ottawa, NYR

Think we're in for a crazy season. The match schedule is very intense for most teams

Hagelin fan?

Yeah, Detroit does look pretty weak on the back end so far, have had trouble getting the puck to the forwards, I think they will be in the fight for 8th.

Yeah, I like a shorter season myself, like the Swedish league and the KHL, the NHL games are more intense because of it, it would be better for the league if the season was shorter.

Yeah, that's exactly what I meant that hockey will become much more interesting once other countries start to get better teams.

Don't follow NHL but my team Jokerit is leading the Finnish league at the moment . Though we lost a few players to NHL, among them this guy...

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Doesn't bother me at all, I'm a nucks fan, so you might understand.

Who do you think will have a better NHL career, Hedman, Larsson or Karlsson?

imo the complete hockey player. Too bad all the injuries got the best of him. I really liked Lindros too. But same with him :/ Both Forsberg and Lindros could have had such great careers but they played in an era that was more brutal.

Forsberg took like 6-7 concussions, had to remove his spleen and pretty much had injuries over his entire body until finally it was the foot problems that ended his career. Lindros had to stop because of the concussions I think.


Shame really. The skilled power forwards are the best kind of hockeyplayers. Those who can light it up on the scoreboard but also run someone over if they have too.

Ovechkin had something going on his first seasons but now I don't know about him anymore. Seems too much of a one-trick-pony. If he had some more playmaking ability he'd be a lot harder to defend against but he's RW and not C so I guess it can be forgiven

Karlsson for sure. Hedman was pimped as the next big thing and drafted very high but not so sure. At the same time defensemen take longer to develop.

Nik Lidstrom himself pretty much had his best years from 34->

Larsson is Ekman-Larsson right? yeah he's developed very fast. Looks more promising than Hedman atm.

But Karlsson is just on another level

I know most D men take longer.

I was talking about Adam Larsson of New Jersey, E-L is very good too.
