    All weight jokes aside....

    Will this guy ever play for Calgary? Or better, will he ever come to the NHL?

    I remember he had 2 or 3 great WJC's.

    Likely not. Hasn't improved his conditioning, last I heard still a backup, Flames management is dissapointed in his work ethic, and with the IIHF transfer agreement, I can't see the Flames giving up very much for the guy.

    Taratuhkin and Trubachev seem to be on the rebound for the Flames priority list though.

    Almost no chance whatsoever, his prospects of getting a starting role in the RSL aren't that great.

    If he got into shape he could have been decent.

    For a fat slob that guy has incredible flexibility and raw talent.

    that kind of attitude will not get him over to the nhl

    Don't the two kind of go hand in hand? At least at that level?

    No idea, but he made Tlachuk and Hull look like Kate Moss in comparison. If I had to guess I would think he was in the vicinity of 60-80 pounds overweight.

    He's 6'1", 240ish I think now.

    To compare, the heaviest NHL goaltender according to NHL.com is Jason Labarbera, he's 230 but he also has 3 inches on Medvedev.

    Nope.

    He can be 300 lbs for all I care, but if he makes the NHL, I want him to be conditioned to play the amount of games and practise at the level NHL goalies do.

    Gump Worsley was fat, and survived. Medvedev could do. It's just that Medvedev is lazy, and that's why he probably won't see a second of NHL ice time.
     
  14. Doesn't sound like he is grossly obese. More like could lose 25-30 lbs then 80-90 lbs. 6" 1" should go about 200-210 lbs.

    Doubt weight was what kept him out of the NHL.

    You don't think 20-30 lbs is signifcant?

    Yes, 200 pounds WOULD be a good weight IF the guy had muscle for that frame BUT 200 pounds with little muscle for a 6'1" is still FAT.

    Medvedev was training on farm club (Spartak Moscow) last months. He hasn't played even one game. Now he's looking for a new team. I think his career is over. Great talent. But he is tooooooo lazy. Nobody wants to wait when he grows up. He acts like a child. So sad.
