Wtf. this kid has shown flashes and is just barely making over league minimum.


Sharks better claim him if they get a chance

Quite a shocker, his offense has not developed but he loves to hit, a great bottom six forward, responsible in his own zone, solid corsi. And he has been double digit goals two years running. Yeah I would snag him, worst case he is balcers best case maybe a Dan Cleary type. Must be More to the story.....

Just claimed by Seattle. Seattle a defense first, opportunistic offensive team, he is a perfect fit for the Kraken. Nice get. Again, has to be more to the story why he was waived out of Nashville. 

He's more a top 6 skill set than bottom 6. He showed that 2 years ago when Forsberg was injured. 


Not sure Seattle is a good fit for him for development as their wings are full.

I don't know. It's one thing to be an unknown put into a prime position and taking advantage of that opportunity.


But when the league catches on that you can put it away and they can start to do the little things that take you off your game and pay a little more attention than they did to the pesky young winger that's when a player's true potential starts to be shown.


Michael Raffl scored 20 goals in 67 games in his second year. Never hit more than 13 again, finished with 89 in 590 games.


I obviously wiish Tolvanen well, but it really could be that we've seen what we're going to see from hiim offensively, but without Raffl's defensive aspect and "intangibles."
