    Karsums a much safer bet for the NHL but I Parshin has amazing talent, elite stickhandling and skating. He's 5'8 though.

    And Karsums isn't much bigger. Though he plays so much bigger than he is.

    Of the two, I've only seen Karsums, but I've seen plenty of him, and I love what I see. Hits, drives the net, works in the trenches, is great positionally. He should be poised for a huge season playing on the top line, but will need help to fill Bernier's skates. Parshin sounds like he is the better puck-handler/more skilled of the two, though Karsums is no slouch himself in that regard.

    Will reserve judgment on who is "more ready" until I see some of Parshin.

    He's coming off an injury-plagued season, of course, so it will be interesting to see how he bounces back; and whether he can maintain his up-tempo, physical style.

    But he should be playing with Graham (or Pineault) on the top line, so he'll have ample opportunity to regain his touch after somewhat of a lost season.

    I saw a couple of CSKA games online last year and Parshin has some sick skills. Kinda reminds me of a smaller, softer Samsonov. His size isn't that big of an issue against players his own age, but he'd get killed in the NHL.
    It's too bad. A player could have Crosby-level talent, but if you're under 160 pounds there's no way you're playing in the NHL. You'd be risking perminant injury every time you step on the ice. :(

    Martin Karsums is the type of player fans love to watch. He's small so he gets that underdog mentality, he's a fast skater, he can handle the puck, and most importantly...he hits like a freight train. He's a smarter, less skilled, version of Alex Bourret, is a comparison I'd make to another prospect. He's got a nice wrist shot too.

    I would say T.J. Hensick with lesser speed though I have seen Hensick only two years ago during World Juniors in Yaroslavl. And the only comparison about Parshin which comes to my mind is Hensick.

    1G+2A in last 3 preseason games (he had a point in every game). His team scored only 7 G in last 3 games.

    He is not crappy. Definitely. I am sure that Parshin will start season on the second line atleast. It seems he has good chemistry with Mozyakin so far, who is CSKA best forward.
