Coyle

Flyers fan here, GFs a Wild fan.

As I only watch a few of their games, and highlights what line is Coyle looking to play on
Is he a PP line guy?

How does he look this pre-season?

he is currently being mixed in on the 2nd PP unit with young guys like granlund, nino, zucker etc. our 1st PP unit is locked up with our top guys. He scored a goal in lasts nights jets game. nice passing tic-tak between him and Heatley. I think he should be improved this season, but its still early. He is also trying out center this year, which will be a new position for him in the NHL. He was 36-38% in faceoffs in last nights game, so thats an area where he can improve. But overall he is looking like a better player

coyle is going to be on 2nd or 3rd line, with 2nd PP unit duties

Coyle has looked pretty good this preseason.

I'm still unsure whether he'll be the type of player who can carry a line himself, or whether he'll be more of a complimentary player.

The great thing about Coyle is that he can play on any of the top 3 lines and he'll fit in anywhere. He'll always be a top 6 player, but he really can play anywhere.

I'd say he isn't untouchable, he just won't be traded unless it's really an overpayment.

As a young player with size,scoring ability(potentially) and still on a rookie contract, the Wild will over value Coyle. The only possible trade I could see is if he is swapped for a young D man with #2 potential.

The WIld cannot afford to give away size at this point.

To be honest, I think the majority of Wild fans UNDER-value Coyle and what he brings to the game. I think it is partially because most fans are not able to recognize his contributions, unless it involves being on the stat sheet. They don't see the puck protection along the boards, the passing, and back checking hustle.

Wild management thankfully does see this, and I think they believe, like I do, that Coyle will be a bonafide stud by the 2017-18 season.

I think you don't give the fans enough credit then. Everyone knows the value of Coyle and the power forward in the making.

Coyle was somewhat the centerpiece of the Burns trade. He's basically untouchable.

He was the centerpiece. Fletcher wanted Pavelski or Couture. San Jose refused to give up either of those rising forwards, and wisely were trying to dump the stalled out Setoguchi. Fletcher then said that Coyle had to be part of the deal. 1st and 2nd were added to even out the value.

I'll agree - there was a lot of beef about him being handed a first line spot last year, even though he "only" got 8 G 14 Pts.

I still consider him our #1 prospect, by a long shot.

You left out his raw physicality though. This guy can engage beast mode

Coyle is undoubtedly one of the top ten best forwards under 25 right now. Add in his potential and he's a generational talent, easily one of the best hockey players to ever put on skates.

When did Karlsson change his name to Coyle, move to forward and join the Wild?

i can't pinpoint it, but I'd say he's been creeping in for about 3 weeks or so. We (collectively) are really starting to sound a lot like Ottawa fans.

Like I said before, when I watched him in practice, Coyle was incredibly skilled with the puck. His biggest issue last year was the speed of the NHL (in terms of plays happening, not skating). That's pretty common for rookies. If he can adjust, I think he can be a #1B center and be a 30g/70pt guy.
