    No stamina, and now injury prone. What a bust this kid turned out to be.

    is this fair value?

    to philly: hischier, 2018 1st round pick
    to nj: michael raffl

    why? nj rids itself of an injury prone bottom 6 forward. PLUS we get raffl, a speedy left winger with elite penalty killing abilities. boom

    NJ may have to add Lovejoy to even the trade value.

    But we already have a speedy left winger with elite penalty killing ability in Grabner.:sarcasm:

    Gotta do that in a heartbeat. I don't think they'd do that deal though.

    Haha.

    Don't care what any fan says. No matter how scrawny the kid is, if he's THAT good, he plays in the NHL after being drafted. Even the worst management teams know what they have.

    I will be watching Pettersson's rookie season closely.

    My favorite clip of Hischier from this past season was easily this in his first game. Stuff like this coming from an 18 year old in his first game has to turn some heads in the locker room.

    You can at 37 too, just not in a sports kind of way.

    I love to Nico

    I think of it more like Hall realizes that Nico didn't hesitate to step in and stick up for a player in his first NHL game against a pretty big dude in Johnson.

    Those are the kinds of things from an 18 year old that makes the veterans better. Even something like Hischier playing a total 200 foot game. It must make Hall realize 'if this kid is doing it, I have no excuse not to do it'.

    Nico played through a wrist injury (same one?) for the latter part of his year in Halifax too. Hope he can get that healed up this summer.

    yea, I should've said for/with him

    either way, what a way to start his NHL career. Showing how much he cares about his team right off the bat and then his actual play followed suit the entire year, being and incredible presence on both ends of the ice. Man, I may have drank a little bit (a lot) tonight but I'm still so happy we have Nico. Before last year's draft I kept thinking how awesome it would be if he fell just a little bit. But no need, he's a Devil! :) :) :) :)

    This sense of enthusiasm to me is part of what prompted NJ to select him first. He’s more than an exciting young player. He’s a future face of the franchise and will generate new fans and sell some tickets as a fan friendly outgoing and engaged player. He’s easy to root for. Compare that with a Marchand. Great player but what parent wants their kid to admire him?

    Exactly. Nico is amazing.

    BTW, if Bratt was out there, he would've bit Johnson on the ankle. :sarcasm:

    The challenge there is traversing the 300 pounds of no-mans-land between "in shape" and "sumo wrestler"

    Nico's go to shot. Far side over the pad under the blocker. He's money on that shot.

    He looks much stronger than draft day. He's a worker.
