Vancouver management is extremely high on Rodin. Gillis has mentioned that they were planning on taking him in the 1st round, and were ecstatic that he fell to them in the second. He may be a small player, but his skills with the puck are undeniable. With Hodgson, Schroeder, Rodin, and Grabner, the Canucks are finally starting to accumulate skilled forward prospects (something this organization has RARELY had).
Saw Rodin at prospect camp, amazing with the puck, he was absoloutely dominating the puck handling and and puck battle drills..he is very thin right now tho so he will need to bulk up to eventually survive the long season grind of the NHL. Look for Rodin w/ team Sweden at the WJC this year.
