A gust of wind could've blown over the kid while he was here. Hes not going anywhere until he gets stronger.

He's listed as 6'3 205lbs. Of all his problems, which were mostly those of a young d-man acclimating to the NHL, I didn't find his strength on his feet to be one of them. He just doesn't like to play physical and push back. He's not, not strong.

205 is probably being generous, but let's not act as if a guys weight or height is a direct correlation with his strength. The knock on Erixon has always been his ability to battle physically. That needs to change or he'll never reach his full potential.

Is he 200lbs of fat? He's timid. I didn't see him lacking strength. He lacked push-back. He plays soft. I didn't see him as being weak on his skates though or not being ABLE to use his muscle in the corner. I just saw him being unwilling to play that game.

You should check out the Flames message board, you'll have company there. They get more joy from Erixon failing than the Flames succeeding. Which is fortunate for them because their team is a trainwreck.

I saw it more as a matter of timidness and fight than strength though. He has the size and strength TO do it. He just doesn't. IMO, at least. I also don't think him not making Columbus says anything. They have six spots locked up and there's no benefit to rostering him as the 7th and sitting him in the pressbox. He'll get minutes in the AHL and keep improving.

I believe this covers it.

Height and weight doesn't imply strength. Certainly not hockey strength, meaning strong on your skates. Tom Poti was listed t 6'3 210. Would you say he was strong? Willie Huber was 6'5 225. Was he strong?

He lacked push back because he physically couldn't push anyone back.

It's not as much wanting to see him fail (didn't approve of his actions in CGY, but everyone deserves a 2nd chance) as it is being glad about not trading a player, who could have helped us this season.

I disagree. I'm not talking universally here. I disagree about Erixon. I think he lacked pushback because he didn't want to push and dig in. I'm not implying anyone has or hasn't played hockey; I played college hockey. The hardest, most exhausting thing you can do in ANY hockey games is spend 10 seconds pinned and battling in the corners. Winning those battles requires WILL much more than strength. That's why little guys can succeed in the corners despite their size. I see Erixon as a player who won't dig to that level to BE strong in the corners. I think he's plenty strong physically.

Now youve just boxed yourself into the theater of conjecture.

Say you're right - which you have no way of proving whatsoever, say that Erixon is strong.

Hes not willing to show it on the ice, so what the hells the difference? Im glad you can see it - somehow.

Because there's a huge difference between saying a player needs to bulk up and get stronger to play in the NHL and a player needs to learn to play with determination and dig deep. It might bode worse for Erixon that he doesn't seem to have found the necessary gear to battle on the walls than simply needing another year of adding muscle. Anyone can add muscle. Learning how to work harder and play that game is a gear you have to find. I don't think Erixon needs to bulk up to make a team; I don't think his problem is size or strength. I think it's simply not playing an NHL game. He doesn't have a stand out enough skill set that he can get by without playing an NHL game behind the net and in the corners. The point, really though, wasn't about dissecting WHY he fails. The point was you said he wouldn't make a team until he got stronger and I said I don't think strength is the problem. That's all, really.

If he was plenty strong physically he wouldn't have to rely on willpower to win physical battles.

Yes some battles require you to harness your willpower and out battle your opponent. The majority however are just strength versus strength in which case Erixon is/was often outmuscled.

He is still a young kid. Of course he is going to get out-muscled. He is a cerebral player, not a banger. Not everyone has to be in-your-face physical to be effective. Erixon will be just fine.

He just needs to be capable of winning one on one battles. He's not ready yet, that's all there is to it. Agree he'll be fine.

I'd snag Irving or Karlsson, I think both will be pretty solid in the future.

Chris Campoli

[...]
Is this guy a fit contract wise and additionally for us?
I gather CBH, if memory serves, were not too thrilled with him, but he's young enough he might have enough in the tank for balance of this year reserve fighting for 6th on this squad.

Of course, I'm hoping instead a better name turns up with the final cuts, and we don't want to have already made our bed, but it appears we have enough room for someone inexpensive. Do we want to look at this guy for this year?

Karlsson is already 30, if memory serves. The future can't be too much further down the road if he plans on turning into a solid goalie. He's a serviceable backup.

29... Time flies or I was thinking of someone else all together. Pass on him. Although solid and serviceable mean the same thing to me. Irving would be nice to have in the system. Obviously we're in good shape with Hank and Biron but I still wouldn't mind someone we can groom as Biron's replacement.
