Surprisingly? I thought it was common knowledge these days.
The Canucks are far from soft. I just can't help but feel their effort level is down a little to save for the playoffs. Maybe not, but it feels that way (I'm a Canucks fan second so I watch them play a lot).
That's the thing, it's not even the SEL... he's playing in the second division
Allsvenskan make's good players.
Just look at OEL ...
You know why he's playing there ? Because its the team near is home. This is how it works in Sweden actually.
He's not been lighting it up, I agree. But he's on their top line (Or second.) and things are coming along great. + He's playing VS man at 17. Not vs 15 year old kid's at 18.
He's incredibly underated.
