Things haven’t been going well for the Vancouver Canucks over the past three years.
In fact, you have to go back to 2020 to see the Canucks’ last appearance in the playoffs, despite some good players within the organization.
I have to say that I’m getting to know Pettersson more and more, and I find him absolutely dominant.
He’s a player many managers can only dream of.
That’s one of the reasons why Rick Tocchet, the Nucks‘ new head coach, wants to prove to Pettersson that he should stay with the organization.
“If we check all the boxes every day, if Petey sees that the organization is well run, the coaching staff is competent and he sees improvement in our players […] maybe it will be more attractive for him to sign” – Rick Tocchet
It’s enough to make general managers across the league dream.
Tocchet seems to know where he’s heading with the club.
“This team is capable of success. It’s about making everyone understand how hard it is to win. To win, you have to do a lot of things that make you uncomfortable.” – Rick Tocchet
Although Pettersson will become a restricted free agent, if he doesn’t extend his contract with the club, it’s possible that a GM who wants to add a lot of punch will attempt a hostile bid to acquire his services.
That’s if Pettersson accepts such an offer, which might be surprising on his part.
I’m telling you, take the time to check out his highlights below. It’s well worth your time.
