Hopefully this one gets discussed as much as the Grimson thread....

He might be as fast as Sully but Sully's agility was off the charts.

I mean I could definitely see him being a top 6 guy, not sure if 1st line will be there. Who knows though.

I mean, Sully would be a good ceiling for him in a perfect world.

It seems like Arvy's work ethic has paid off based on his performance later in the season. He was able to correct his mistakes and learn how to play in this league by watching film and adjusting his game.

I hope he can carry his work ethic into the weight room and put on some pounds this offseason. If so, I could see Arvy scoring 50-55 pts consistently under the right circumstances.

Those circumstances are based on the decisions Lavi and Poile make about Vesey, Fiala, and Hook. (Also possibly Aberg. He's still a relevant prospect right?) I would love to see Arvy on the top line, but I don't know if that's ever going to happen.

I think if he can keep his skates under him and continue to learn and improve he could be a really serviceable top 6 guy. Just imagine if someone like Ribeiro had as much hustle and heart as he does.

Great subject to talk about. Ceiling? Top-6 for sure. The guy has heart and that goes a long way. He's got unreal wheels under him. Great release, too. Needs to become stronger.

He is ripe for a high ceiling.

Players like him have a potential to be special- the parts are all there...

He's small and had to overcome a lot to get here.
Was drafted as an overager- learned to take nothing for granted.
He's determined as hell.

He shoots all the time.
He is pretty fast.
He is a super hard worker.

He's the kind of guy who you could get you 35 goals in his prime.

I'd be shocked if he ever comes close to Sullivan's production. I see him maxing out around 45, not 70+....

Imagine if we land Vesey and Arvy becomes a legit top-6 F. Imagine our wing depth in the future.

FF
Vesey
Arvy
Fiala
Salomaki
One of Wilson and Smith
(Aberg)

Arvy reminds me a whole heck of a lot of rookie Atkinson. Would be awesome if we get that out of him.

I see his ceiling as a decent top-6 threat, but overall, I see him as a legit 3rd line scoring threat. So far, he's been a great surprise.

Hornqvist 2.0 Fearless, likes to shoot and is all in everytime he hits the ice. Now if we could teach him to camp in front of the net that would be so much the better.

I think he could have a few 60-70 pt seasons. Probably the usual will be 45-55 pts.

I think We will See this in 2 years

Forsberg-Johan-Neal
Fiala-Kamanev-Arvidsson
Vesey-Jarnkrok-Smith
Salomaki-Sissons-Watson

Well, if we're talking Sully as his achievable ceiling, we've got to see a lot more in his passing game. Sully wasn't Kariya type creative, but he was smart capable and accurate. Good point in the article on Arvy keeping his cool on that play in front the other night and that reflects well on his composure, and the game has clearly slowed for him, so he has the chance to see the ice better, and therefore a chance to see opportunities for linemates.. We've not really seen that from him yet, so it's hard to see him having Sully upside, but he's still pretty early in his dev at this level and with the growth we've seen just this year I'm sure not ready to say we know his ceiling.

To me, he's ahead of Fiala. Skill is there. Looks like motor is there. Can he handle 82 NHL games multiple seasons? Second line. Maybe power play specialist. Preds system may keep stats down a bit.

Alright here lies a problem with giving a prospect too much of an expectation to live up to, and then leads to constant ragging on by some people on here because of him not living up to your hype.

A potential top 6 player, no doubt. He's shown a bunch of growth but not every prospect is always going to hit that max potential that is discussed. 3rd line speed winger that can consistently score 15+

The secret to avoiding that is to remember that it was hype, and be prepared to accept a lesser outcome so long as it remains a positive one. Set the bar at "useful NHL player" rather than "goal-scoring top-6 winger" in this case, for example (and be happy if he ends up that high ).

His season this year reminds me a ton of Bourques when he got a fair amount of goals.

Followup and consistency will be key

I'm so happy for this kid! I "called" him in the JWC:s.

Everyone said he'd never make the NHL due to his size, but I hoped that Ottawa would use a pick on him as an over-ager.

Then he ended up in Nashville and has since proved a lot of people wrong. Love his game. A garden gnome who thinks he's 7 feet tall.

Seems to get a lot of shots off, but I guess his aim and velocity could need some work?

Not necessarily. He just likes to shoot from anywhere he gets a chance to. That's not really bad either because you never know if the goalie is going to be screened at the last second or if it's going to hit a stick or if the goalie is going to give up a rebound.

He's nonstop though. Always hustling, always trying to get the puck. He's fun to watch even when he's not scoring.

He's the fastest guy I've seen in a long, long time. There's a couple of NHL D'men who would agree. He's learning and the goals will come. I think 30/30 player in a year or two.
