Looks almost official Broberg is heading back to play in Sweden for the coming season

https://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/cult-of-hockey /philip-broberg-to-play-for-skelleftea-in-sweden-not-hamilto n-in-ohl-in-2019-20

I stii think Broberg would thrive and develop just as well if not better in Hamilton, but playing in Sweden isn't the end.




It's not a totally unheard of development route...it's not like he's playing Junior B in Tofield.

And it worked for this guy to play a couple more SEL seasons after getting drafted: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=3146



You leave the Satellites out of this. What have they ever done to you? Nothing, that's what.


I play with a couple of guys who came through the Tofield system, and let me tell you...they're no Nick Lidstrom! Fine guys, good friends, but if you're looking for a top-five NHL defenceman of all-time? Not even close!

Looks like it's a done deal. Broberg isn't even coming to training camp with either Tofield or the Edmonton Oilers.

https://www.tsn.ca/edmonton-oilers-first-round-pick-philip-b roberg-to-play-in-shl-this-season-1.1343573

"Broberg, the eighth overall pick in June's draft, told NHL.com he will not be attending Oilers training camp and will instead spend the year with Skelleftea in the Swedish Hockey League as he continues to grow his game.

"It's a great organization for developing," Broberg said of the SHL club. "I know I'm not good enough to make the NHL team right now. That's why I'm going to Skelleftea, to play against men every day, to practise against them, to play in probably the third-best league in the world, to get better and come back next year and make the [Oilers].' "

Not a bad decision for a kid who just turned 18, but from an Oiler fan's point of view, it would be nice to have a preview of what tools Brobers has. I don't know if the Oilers will be taking part in that prospects tournament in Penticton, but if they are that would be a good place for him to get a handle on the North American game.

I’m glad he’s not reporting here. If his game has warts, which it should given his age and position, then work on them overseas where he is still comfortable. I couldn’t imagine the backlash from fan sites and bloggers if he came to camp overmatched and unrefined.

21/22 should be a reasonable target.

Some players aren’t about the money. Not like that greedy Finnish kid!

Kinda like K-Lowe knows a thing or two about winning.





I imagine this kind of flawed logic is why there are SO MANY former NHLers in positions they have no experience or qualifications for around the NHL.

Sure, he's never negotiated anything, barely passed grade 12 math and has had someone telling him what to do for every aspect of his life for the last 15-20 years., even down when to go to bed, and when to get up...but he's probably the right person to take over as GM of our franchise! He won Stanley Cups as a player! And he was even half-decent out there!

Surely, all that it takes to be a successful executive in a competitive sports league is a fierce determination to win and a high pain threshold!

It's got nothing to do with drinking the Kool aid. If the first thing that comes to mind when you think about something is to rehash the bad over and over again, then maybe a person should take a step away for a bit. In my opinion, what's the point in following a team if all they do is make you miserable. I will just drop it because I know I am wasting my time.

People’s fury for the consistent mismanagement of this team shows the passion of the market, you can’t argue that. I mean, you can try. But. Yeah.

In a city like Edmonton, a market that is so passionate, you’re not going to have people just step away. At least not the mass of the people, because the arena, the chat boards, they’d be empty. Shelves would be packed with merch. And let’s be honest, there’s the eskimos, there’s always some festival (it seems)... but the Oilers are THE ticket in town... you have 10 people step away because they’re fed up there’ll be 20 people waiting to take their spots.

That, and, people have this predetermined fear of missing out. Why give up my season tickets when I know I’ll be kicking myself when the team turns it around.

We, I speak for the mass, are fed up with the mismanagement of our beloved team. But heck do they know how to sell hope.

Oh, and Connor.

Interesting discussion, but I just would like to point out that Steve Staios is President and General Manager of the Hamilton Bulldogs, so I would think he would have little to do with watching players develop day-to-day. The head coach of the Bulldogs is Dave Matsos, who I know nothing about, except he had a brief career as an AHL player before playing a few seasons in Britain. I also remember he collapsed behind the Hamilton bench last season, but as far as I know made a full recovery.

I know it's very unlikely that Broberg will become Oliver Eckman-Larsson 2.0, but Eckman-Larson played another season in Sweden after he was drafted, and then was splitting the next two seasons between the AHL and NHL.
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=120283

I realize there is no cookie-cutter formula for player development, but I don't think Broberg will suffer if he plays with the big boys in Sweden one more season. Hopefully, he will be selected for Team Sweden at this year's U-20 tournament so we can see how he is coming along.

The argument to have Broberg join Hamilton also does have some merit. As RDOF points out, it would allow Broberg to get used to the North American sized ice, and he would surely get more ice time than he would in Sweden.

Either way, I hope this kid achieves his potential. I won't add fuel to the fire here, but if Broberg can develop through the Oilers "system", it's a giant leap forward.

Another advantage is the head coach for Hamilton is Steve Staios who has ties to the Oilers and was a decent NHL defenseman himself. So he would be able to steer him in the right direction and get him to work on the things he would need to in order to succeed in the NHL.


rofl lmao rofl

Staios? What's he going to teach him? How to ring a puck around the boards? Last 4 years of his career that was pretty much his one and only go-to move. Usually ending up on the opposing team's stick.

No - I'm good minimizing his exposure to the Steve Staios school of hockey.

I'm probably still jaded, but the longer the Oilers keep their grubby hands off him, the better IMO.

It's getting to the point where you literally take every thread and you turn it into another rehashing the bad moves thread. Now this thread will be taken over like all the other ones with comments about all the Oilers crappy moves, the players they rushed a decade ago. The dmen they gave up on too soon. etc, etc. You could literally go into every thread and I would bet there is pages and pages of the same crap.

Serious legit question. Is it possible to have a discussion about ANYTHING involving the team that doesn't turn into another complaint session?

When it comes to Staios, the guy played 1001 games. I am going to assume you don't play that many games by fluke, he must have don't something right. After retiring he spent time with the Leafs in development. He has short stints as an assistant. I am sure he could teach Broberg a few things about life in the NHL. What it takes to be a pro, positioning, etc. I am sure there are things he could teach an 18 yr old kid with 1001 NHL games of experience that would help him.



1) Dude - relax. You complain WAY too much about people complaining.

2) I rarely post anymore on here, not sure what "every thread" you are talking about, but ok.

3) This was not a general Oilers suck post (though those are warranted more than any other team in league history). I suppose you haven't been here long enough to remember the days of Staios here - but my disdain for his play is matched by no other player in the last 15 years, and that includes Lucic and Manning. So this was a very specific tongue in cheek jab at one of my all time most disliked Oilers.

Chillax.

EDIT - his bumbling in game 7 against the Canes cost us the Cup. Bum!

Hamilton is in the CHL who own his rights. Holland has come out and said it's either Sweden or Hamilton. If he plays in Sweden, this coming season is the last then he is coming over.

Oh snap I didn't know Hamilton was Bro's CHL rights holder. Always learning something on the ol' Oilfans.com. Plus gotta be 19 for the A so I shoulda known.

Broberg is playing on TSN right now, for all that care.

I just caught the 3rd. Skated very well and the puck didn't stay on his stick very long and he got ouot of the zone efficiently. He iced it once, but it looked like the forward just missed the pass. USA outmatched Sweden, but Broberg controlled the play when he was on the ice. Announcers were really bragging him up.


Also looked big.

Highlight pack.

Only really see him around 1:10. His D partner decides he doesn't want to do stuff and gives the puck away in the middle of the ice and you see Broberg at the end trying to cover and not getting there in time :)



Kaliyev with some good goals. Would be very annoying if he ended up being great for LA after dropping to the 2nd round for some unknown reason.

And Broberg scores on Olivier Rodrigue on a 2 man advantage powerplay, making the score 3-1 Canada over Sweden.

Eastern Oil @OntarioOilers

18 y.o. SHL seasons

Broberg 42, 1-7-8, 0.19 P/G
Klefbom 33, 2-0-2, 0.06 P/G
Klingberg 26, 0-5-5, 0.19 P/G
Karlsson 45, 5-5-10, 0.22 P/G



Looks like Broberg put up 4 points in feb to double his total for the year. Ending up with a reasonable season as a youngin getting limited minutes and offensive opportunity in the SHL.

Looks like Broberg will stay in Sweden at least through next season.

https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/hockey/news/oilers-philip- broberg-planning-to-stay-in-sweden/

"Broberg will continue playing for Skelleftea AIK, where he notched one goal and seven helpers in 45 games last season, rather than link up with AHL Bakersfield. Perhaps once the 18-year-old 2020-21 Swedish campaign wraps up, he can join up with the Condors for the final few games of the year."

Shortened season. Potential shortened 20/21. May as well. No harm.

I wouldn't have been upset if they brought him over to play in the AHL but I have no problem with him staying in Sweden to develop. Looks like they have an organization actually serious about developing talent.
