Edvinsson Focus -

Seems like a cross of Johansson and Seider.
Loves to jump in like a forward like Johansson.
Has the size/skating to play Seider-like D. Clearly not as physical, but still uses the body to take guys off the puck.

I read somewhere the other week that Edvinsson has grown almost 2 inches and is 6' 6" now.

That's what I thought, as well. He is a magnificent skater for a guy that tall, gets very low in his skates. And very smooth.

Yeah I would believe 6'6" at least. His stick is ridiculously long.

He is a smooth skater. His in-tight footwork seems good too, although he doesn't seem to have to use it often. The quickness of NHL players and the smaller ice size might be an especially big adjustment for him.

It's hard to imagine all him doing all that freelancing over here, but he does look really good. I like the move where he shields the the puck from the defender with his body while he skates up the boards.

I'm annoyed he won't be over here next month.

So, was she bragging or complaining?

Edvinsson loosely translates to uterus destroyer in English.

Well, that didn't take long for this thread to go off the rails.
