Danes in NHL 2017/2018

Lets make another thread, just to keep it a bit organized. Season opener is merely a month away, so what do people think of the Danish players and what kind of season will they have?

I hope to see Bødker have one hell of a rebound season, although I am not sure how much chance there is of that.

Bjorkstrand should be in the line up from start now. Hope he is doing better than at season start last year.

Andersen should take another step of defining him as a solid above average goalie. Lets hope he starts off without any injuries this season. If he could bring the kind of play he did in the last season in Anaheim, the Leafs will quickly be a topcontender for their division.

I hope Nielsen establishes himself as a rolemodel for a young Red Wings team. He did it in Islanders and I cant see why it should not be the same way in Detroit.

Hansen in Sharks....Im not thrilled to be honest. He could play on both 1st and 3rd line, but I am having a hard time watching him in another jersey than the blue Canucks.

Will Ehlers hit 70 points this year? I fear that we will miss him at the WC in may if Jets continue to develop their young core.

Eller....meh....all that talent, so little to show for it. I guess 3rd line duties fits him more. His dad should not have influenced him that much

No rookies this year, or in the near future.

Lets just hope for a solid season overall, the obvious gem being Ehlers.

Well you aren't missing Ehlers in May unless he gets traded

You think Jets will be that bad this season also?

Pretty much in agreement of what you said.
I for one just hope Hansen gets an injure free season. Care less for where he plays.
For Eller it does seem that 3rd line duties are what suits him far best despite all the talent.

There is little but words showing they will be better. This group of personnel (from players to coaches to GM) failed so many times and were constantly bad at the same things (defensive structure and special teams) that it gives little to optimistic about. Central is still very strong and even if they get into the playoffs by luck (they have talent for sure so combined with decent PDO they can get in) but surely they aren't playing in May.

Bjorkstrand and Andersen will be the most interesting to follow in my opinion. If Andersen can get over the usual bumpy starts in the beginning of the season, he should fine. Bjorkstrand seems to have everything set for a great season, should be having top line minutes and loads of PP time.

I have faith in Ehlers keeping it up.

That is pretty much in line with what im watching...
Andersen needs to take another step up, cant wait to see if he can.
Oliver Bjorkstrand is just so damned likeable..i just really really really want this kid to have a great season..he has this lovely balance between having his feet on the ground and still having a toned down confidence in his play.

i have confidence that Ehlers will be fine..he needs the right line to really succeed but he is just too good to have bad spells that last a very long time.

Boedker makes me mad...end of sentence.

Hope the honeybadger can keep healthy...he is an asset to any team he is on.

In general i hope everybody have the best season of their lives with convenient placed injured/or **** teams for them not to make the playoff and be ready for wc in denmark...

So lets just say im not sure what to think

I cant wait till Denmark have more youngsters to follow pre draft - I miss that

My appologies if I have stepped on your toes in the past. There are no personal issues from my side and shouldnt stop you from writing what you want. I might not agree with you, but it is a discussion forum. You give and you take.

Patrick Russell probably dont qualify as a young guy, but seems like he is impressing some ppl in Edmonot at the moment. He'll not going to make it to NHL now, but might get a call up during the coming season. Looks like a good fit for a 4th line center position.

Last night was good for the Danish players. Bødker and Nielsen both with two goals. I really hope Bødker can turn it around this season. So far he has shown a much better form.
