Thoughts on Some Red Wings Prospects in the WJSS

Postby Pop Zeus » Sun Jul 30, 2017 5:08 pm

Kasper Kotkansalo - Reminds me a bit of Detroit-era Kyle Quincey. Not much in the way of passing or skating. Decent shot. Willing to play chippy and throw the odd hit. Very conservative approach to the game. Not sure a lot of prospects like that develop into NHLers.
Used by Finland on the PK and 3rd pairing. Skates OK. Nothing special. Seemed in good position.

Gustav Lindstrom - Played 3rd pairing and some PK. The great passing Hakan Andersson talked about wasn't seen. He made a couple passes to players, but they were often behind them or in the skates. Played with some willingness to staple guys along the boards as they rushed in with the puck. Not particularly physical in front of the net. Didn't skate with the puck very much. A couple giveaways. A couple poor reads too.

Keith Petruzzelli - Came in with a 2-1 lead, lost 4-3, giving up 3 goals in 30 minutes. Didn't make many good saves either. Looked stiff. Doesn't seem to use long legs to go post-to-post very well. Fortunately for him he had a good bounceback game against Finland.

Timothy Liljegren - Played like Karlsson - 4th forward kind of guy. You can see some potential for a dynamic player. Has a good shot too. Didn't see many reasons to question his hockey sense or decision making, besides one unnecessary no-look pass in front of his own net that was nearly picked off.

Rasmus Dahlin - After one period, I didn't see much to like. But he got stronger as the game went on. Skates OK. But he's strong. Has a great shot. Passes well. Loves to jump in the play. Isn't afraid to be physically aggressive.

Meanwhile, Petruzzelli won 4-1 yesterday and played well. Kotkansalo had a primary assist and played a bigger role. Good thing careers aren't judged on a 1 game basis.

Observations are just that. I am certain PZ will update his opinions as he continues to update us on his observations.

Pff... we don't need dynamic d-men like Liljegren. Already have Cholowski and Saarijarvi. Give them another 3-4 years of development and our 3rd pair is set!

This has to be sarcasm..because...guess what, he didn't! Shocker! He used his opportunity to post a negative novel about Wings prospects. When they began to perform better he disappeared.

The Wings had the most prospects of any team in the WJSS-by all accounts they performed very well
