    Who would you rather want on your team... who will be the better player of the three?

    I'd choose Lisin. He has the most upside and has speed to burn. He seems to be having a fairly good season and is the only one getting a regular shift in the RSL out of the three. I haven't heard if he stopped cherry picking or not.

    Voloshenko is a close 2nd. I think he is the safer prospect. He has a wicked shot and I think his game will fit the NHL style.

    Lisin is surprisingly still getting a regular shift on a loaded Ak-Bars team. Pre-draft it was insinuated he is a cherry picker with speed but there have been several first-hand reports before and since that he is defensively sound. I'd be inclined to believe that because its unlikely he'd still be in the RSL if he was a cherry picker on the 3rd/4th line.

    The other guys have more upside but I would go with Yunkov. I love his passing and two way play. Plus he goes into traffic and does dirty work.

    They are all good. In case what you want:
    - Two-way setup player with good defensive awareness - pick up Younkov
    - Speedy Winger and point producer - Lisin or Voloshenko. I'd pick up Lisin.

    It looks like Lisin will be on the top line with Ovechkin and Dmitri Pestunov (Coyotes' prospect). So team Russia has made their choice.

    I'm a big fan of Voloshenko, very underrated player in my mind. I look for him to have a good showing at the World Juniors.

    I'm still angry the Pens drafted Salmonnson over Lisin. What's hands-of-stone up to these days, anyhow?

    I'm not impressed. I can't seem to find his tier 2 stats anywhere though, so he may have picked it up.

    Lisin ->

    Not too shabby on a STACKED AK-Bars team.

    I don't know why everyone is so pumped up about Salmonsson. I think at best he's a third liner.

    Ahh... here are Salmonsson's stats from Almtuna, Swe-2....

    6 GP, 0 G, 1 A, 6 PIM

    ... really impressive. No wonder so many teams are kicking themselves for not drafting him in the first round. :shakehead

    I have hope for Yunkov, but I'm not sure he'd be the best out of the three.

    In some ways, I think he's one of the most likely of the bunch to reach his potential.


    Lisin and Voloshenko have a pretty high ceiling, while I don't think Yunkov will ever score as much as they can.


    But either way, I'm interested to see what Yunkov might look like on a line with Alexander Semin in 2-3 years time. Yunkov's got a little finish, but likes to setup more, and I think the two of them could be a solid pair on a dangerous second line.

    You probably also hated the Goligoski pick.

    Don't know anything about Yunkov. The other 2 I can comment on though.

    Voloshenko's biggest knock was his skating. Had he been a better skater, he probably would've gone top 20 in the draft.

    Lisin is perhaps the fastest skater in the world for his age group, possibly even one of the top 10 fastest in the world. He doesn't have that great of finishing ability and for many players, it's hard to make plays a lot when you skate at top speed, although there are rare players that can do it.

    I really thought Voloshenko looked good last night. I thought Lisin looked OK, but again, he didn't make a good move when Ovechkin sent him in, going full speed, and Montoya poke checked him. Voloshenko is not as bad a skater as I thought he would be from what I've heard. He's about an average skater on team russia which is the fastest team in the tournament.

    In the NHL, I'd take Voloshenko out of the three. Lisin, although a better thinker I would say, reminds me a bit of a skinnier Ivan Novoseltsev.
