I hear all this talk about Evgeni Malkin being able to come into the NHL and contribute as a solid second line player, yet Sens fans seem to have doubts about Alexie Kaigorodov being able to do the same. I'm not comparing their potential by any means, but I'm just wondering right now, can Kaigorodov contribute in the NHL for the Sens? I didn't see him play the last year, but look at his numbers in the RSL compared to Malkin, who was on the same team. Kaigorodov: 57 games played, 15 goals, 33 assists, 48 points, second in RSL in scoring overall. Malkin: 52 games played, 12 goals, 20 assists, 32 points. Can Kaigorodov contribute at the NHL level next season?
