Hot off the presses from this morning:
Not surprisingly @EdmontonOilers prospect Philip Broberg has been named to Sweden's Preliminary WJC Roster.— Bob Stauffer (@Bob_Stauffer) December 3, 2020
He is a slam dunk to make the team.
Broberg is in top-25 in D scoring in the SHL.
He has 2-5-7 in 21 GP and is averaging 18:59 TOI for Skelleftea. pic.twitter.com/GYr0bfv36R
Another Oilers prospect worth watching come WJHC time. Where do you think Broberg lands in our 2020 Top 25 Under 25?
Speaking of the T25U25, have any of our picks been wildly off based on your own lists? Who are players that you have way higher (or lower) than we do? What are your projections for the rest of the Top 10?
Not to make too much about it, but hearing that Gary Bettman and Don Fehr recently spoke to break their silence with each other. And spoke again over the last few days. Whether that means anything? Better than the alternative.— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) December 2, 2020
Honestly, folks, nothing about this is sounding good. I’m sure there’s an element of catastrophizing going on in my head right now, but that might be a natural defense mechanism after my carrying optimism during the previous two labor stoppages did absolutely nothing to prevent them.
FIGURE IT OUT.
