Scotty Bowman is quoted in this week's Nicholas J. Cotsonika's Three Periods column:
Quote:
– Bowman has been impressed with two young defensemen: the Phoenix Coyotes’ Oliver Ekman-Larsson and the Minnesota Wild’s Jonas Brodin. Mark these words: “You’ll see in a couple years. You’ll be talking about these guys among the top half-dozen defensemen in the league. That’s how good they are.” He loves their skating, skill and hockey sense – how passes are always tape-to-tape.
Nice to see that young Jonas is getting some attention from someone who knows a thing or two about good Swedish defensemen . Actually what's remarkable is that Bowman is not talking about Brodin in terms of being an outstanding rookie but instead putting him on the same level as OEL who is already well established as one of the best young D in the league.
