"Svech is doing a good job, and he tries hard every shift ... he's doing a solid job. So when he gets in there, he's just gotta keep doing a solid job."

31 Prospects: Red Wings’ Seider, Canadiens’ Caufield among top performers of 2020-21 - Hockey Sense
The way he has played this year, I really feel that there’s a good case for Seider being the best player outside of the NHL currently. Seider leads all U20 players in the SHL with 26 points. That puts him just five points behind Nils Lundkvist’s record for points by a U20 defenseman in SHL history, set last season. Seider, however, has a higher points-per-game rate at 0.72.
That’s just one paragraph of three written on Seider and it’s all about 31 teams. This is a good article to read thoroughly.
Excuse me, three picks down to two decided by a lottery is this year....rest is 2022.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) March 8, 2021
Sure, they can grandfather the Luongo rule but not this one.
