Definitely thought a guy with that name went to an ivy league school.

Didn't Dipietro win OHL player of the year as well?

Jeff Marek no doubt made some NHL fans sweat by claiming he knows of a highly-touted 1st round draft pick of a "prominent" NHL club (whatever the hell that means) is ruining his career due to a video game addiction. Rumor has it the prospect Marek is referring to is Olli Juolevi. Of course this doesn't pass the smell test because Marek says one of his sources is a junior coach, and Juolevi is playing pro in Finland. And even if it was him, a lot of people are saying this is a crock of shit, some of the league's best players play INSANE amounts of Fortnite/Overwatch/Whatever online. I believe Patrik Laine is a very avid gamer. I mean really, these guys' lives are basically playing hockey and preparing for hockey, so they spend their off-time either playing console games, listening to really bad music, and obsessively watching The Bachelor (many players on the Avs can't get enough of that particular show :roll: ). I suppose it's better than them getting into trouble at the local strip club.

I'm not concerned. Joulevi had a a good season in Finland, and his 2nd half was excellent. Not sure he'll be a top pairing guy but should at least be a solid 3/4 dman.

Joulevi out 8-10 weeks with micro disc back surgery. Not ideal considering his coach Sami Salo publicly stated that he needs to be in much better shape if he wants to make the team next season.

Patrick O'Sullivan said he was faced with a similar back ailment and opted not to undergo surgery because he was told it might not make anything better. :|

Canucks really just need to keep that damned pick and get a defenseman. It's like all their eggs are in Juolevi's basket, and he may yet be a solid D-man, but there needs to be more. This Hanifin nonsense is just that...not that it'd stop Benning.

If Linden can't save Benning from himself then he only has himself to blame. They've been pretty clear to the media that they are steadfast with their intention of building through the draft -- but saying one thing and doing another is becoming the obvious hallmark of the current organization and all indications from around the league are that the 7th pick is most definitely in play.
