Sens_Army_: As per @ScoreOttawa ... RW Andre Petersson practicing with the #Sens this morning

wasn't he skating with them for a few days now? But someone also pointed out that he was favouring his leg/knee? also, he is not a signed player.

Ugh this guy is so over-rated... Hopefully im wrong but this guy wont make it in this league when hes already dealing with injuries.

DJB 04-06-2011 12:38 PM

BDP says he is unlikely to sign...

It's not like anyone is touting him as a top prospect or anything.

He's not overrated, he's a boom or bust guy. If he cant get healthy he's nothing. If he can he's got legit top 6 potential.

I would hardly call him over rated. Bileur had it bang on, boom or bust. And a lot of players deal with injury, if he comes back 100% he is a legit prospect.

This year perhaps, but if he gets healthy I have a hard time believing the Sens won't sign him. Why else would they go through the trouble of bringing here for several months to be taken care of by doctors? The organization obviously thinks he has potential if they are taking care of his healing process.

We'll sign the kid. Murray loves him and thinks he has great potential. Does anybody really disagree?

Based on?

Did you just check his stats on hockey db? lol

Haven't you see him play in 2 WJC? Have you seen him play in the SEL?

So is he is overrated because he was injured all season?
:huh:

The Waffler 04-07-2011 01:29 AM

If we don't sign him, he's gonna be eligible for the draft again, no?

SChan* 04-07-2011 05:47 AM

the guy scored 8 goals at the 2010 WJC, how is he overrated? Not his fault he got injured.

Fenix Rises 2026 04-07-2011 06:26 AM

Lots of guys get overrated by a big showing at the WJC.

*cough* Brayden Schenn *cough*

Tarasenko too :(

Yeah...the WJC isn't something you should use to gauge someone's ability. Petersson is being overrated by Sens fans.

No one even seems to think he's a sure shot NHLer. I think everyone understands what he is.

I expect more of the people who are calling him overrated wouldn't be calling him overrated if he got more ice and wasn't playing fragile all year. He led the preseason Euro Trophy tourney in scoring, but his club is known not to let young players get much ice. I've yet to figure out whether it was his back or his club keeping his ice limited....his numbers given his ice time are actually pretty impressive.

If he got PP1 time and played 15-16 minutes a night and put up Silfverberg's numbers (which many Swede posters think he would have), we'd be hearing a lot more people overrating him. He is what he is regardless of what he produces....small, soft, project, highly skilled.

He's 20....it took Omark til he was 23 to sniff the NHL.

SenzZen 04-07-2011 08:42 AM

One thing is for sure: this kid can shoot the puck.

I watched the Swedish Jrs play an exhibition game against the Carleton Ravens in the fall of 09. On a textbook 3 on 2, Petersson was the trailer and from between the blueline and the top of the circles ripped a wrister top shelf past Carleton's goalie- who had a clear look.

Oh yeah- and Carleton's goalie happened to be their best player, and has posted 3 SO and a .915 SV% in a season in the WHL...

I love how a player who performs well at the WJC is seen as being overrated after said performance and has proven nothing, but a player who underperforms at the WJC, is now a bust and said performance should be taken at full value and as an indicator of his future in the NHL.

this is true

it seemed like a yearly event the last two years to bash cowen non-stop cause of it :facepalm:

Curtinho 04-07-2011 09:59 AM

It's just funny when people go out and call him our most talented forward prospect when he really hasn't shown that at all. Does he have tools? Sure. But so do a lot of players that are never able to make the NHL, or even combine all those tools to make a successful player. For example, people think he's more talented than Silfverberg, but Silfverberg, in my opinion, has shown a lot more than Petersson from what I've seen.

saying he is the most talented forward prospect we have is fairly accurate.

You are acting like we have Hall or Schenn in our prospect pool

Just cause someone says he is our most talented forward prospect doesnt mean he is a surefire NHL'er. The things holding back petersson are size and injuries something out of his control at this point. And I would say he is more pure skilled than Silfverberg. If Silverberg had this kids shot selection he would be rated a 8.0 prospect.

Have you seen Silfverberg's shot? Not only does he get it off more, but it's not far from, if worse at all, Petersson's shot.

I agree completely. I think Silfverberg and Petersson our two of our best prospects, and their shots are both great. Silfverberg has a wicked shot on the rush to.

On top of which I think Silfverberg has great hockey sense, he's strong in the crease so he can also contribute garbage goals, he's bigger and has a very good two way game so even if he's being kept off the scoresheet he's contributing.

That's why silfverberg is a SAFER prospect. As good as silfverberg's shot is, it isn't quite at petersson's level. Silfverberg is better in almost every aspect, but don't say his shot is as good as petersson's because it's not.
