Vancouver Off-Topic / Current EventsThe off-topic forum for Vancouver, funnies, non-auto centered discussions, WORK SAFE. While the rules are more relaxed here, there are still rules. Please refer to sticky thread in this forum.
here is a neat little chart comparing the dificulty of playing in various leagues vs the nhl
The league difficulty for the largest NHL feeder leagues is shown below:
WHA Final Year (1978-79)
Russian Elite League
Swedish Elite League
Czech Republic League
Deutsche Eishockey League
WHA First Year (1972-73)
Switzerland National League
Canadian Major Junior
* The difficulty of Canadian Major Junior is lower than predicted by this method since major junior players are 20 years old or younger and consequently experience significant skills growth from year-to-year.
Only was able to catch the first 2 periods, but I thought he played pretty well. Typical cool as a cucumber schneider. Really looking forward to watch him play more whenever we have hockey again. Posted via RS Mobile
CANUCKS' RAYMOND SIGNS CONTRACT TO PLAY WITH SWEDISH CLUB
Raymond signed a month-long contract with Orebro of the Hockey Allsvenskan, which is the second tier of Swedish pro hockey, and is expected to play 11 games with the club throughout the month.
"In Mason, we get a global player to the squad. One of the NHL's best skaters and a forward of a very high class," the club said in a statement after announcing the signing.
The 27-year-old Raymond is coming off a disappointing season in which he registered 10 goals and 10 assists in 55 games. To his credit, the Alberta native was coming off fracturing two vertebrae in Game Six of the Stanley Cup final the year before.
The Canucks forward joins Maple Leafs defenceman Carl Gunnarson on the Orebro roster.
