I think it would be one of the fastest line in hockey if matthias was centering instead of bjugstad.

I am way too excited for bjugstad.

Bjugstad is a really good skater for his size but he's not nearly as fast as his wingers who are some of the fastest. Like Ursvolta said, put Matthias there and you probably have the fastest players with size in the league on one line.

So you think its better served with Matthias there, Shore back up with the kiddies and move howden to 4th ?

Nothing against Skille but I would have liked to seen Kopecky on the wing. I think him and Bjugstad could do a fantastic job of cycling the puck and maintaining puck possession. Bjugstad does a great job of using his size to cycle and shield the puck.

That line is fine, I'd rather see Kopecky on the wing in place of Skille. I think we'll see Dinnen mix the lines up anyway unless Shore's wrist is bothering him.

I would like to see Bjugstad center Hubs just because it would be fun to see and Bjugstad has a great shot.

Minnesota's top line was Rau - Bjugstad - X

I think KD should try to recreate this somehow. Bjugstad needs speedy wingers who grind and possess the puck. He should get paired with Skille, Upshall (maybe Bergenheim, for next season).

Howden with Bjugstad might work, but Q is still getting used to the NHL game. I don't know how effective that line could be.. It might spell disaster as far keeping the puck out of our own net. Because you got 2 rookies with hardly 10 games under their belt combined.

Does anyone think Jordan Staal is a realistic comparison for Bjugstad? Or are we talking like Getzlaf/Thornton level?

I think Bjugstad is more of a finisher than Getzlaf/Thornton who are both more playmakers. I also think believing Bjugstad could live up to Getzlaf/Thornton level is a little premature and probably too lofty of expectations. I'm not sure if he's as good defensively as Staal but I'd say production wise, I'd bet he's closer to Staal than Getzlaf/Thornton. Bjugstad's great at protecting the puck, going in the corners, and rifling the puck top shelf. I think he has a lot of the characteristics that could match up really well with Huberdeau as linemates. I'm having a little trouble comparing him to a player but I'd say Eric Staal/Jeff Carter hybrid, because of his finishing ability is more adept of a player comparison than Getzlaf/Thornton.

Hopefully, at the very least, David Backes.

That's to help with the tank . But yeah, all I hope is that Bjugstad can play well enough to avoid all the "bust" threads shortly after the game.

Bjugstad himself has said in the past that he tries to model his game after Thornton. I think thats definitely how you see his ability at protecting the puck comes from because thats what Thornton excels at too. I'm sure there are different parts of his game that are modeled after different players so in the end, there is no good comparison because he really doesnt have someone that does what he does.

You're right.. I'd almost say his best comparable is Tyler Myers.. It's tough to compare him to somebody.

To me Bjugstad is pretty much a Getzlaf clone. Except that Bjugstad isnt as good of a passer, but maybe a better goalscorer.

Can't wait for tomorrows game
