Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Arizonan God, Oct 29, 2015.
Scored in today's MHL play-off game:
In a way its similar to Brady Tkachuk. Brady is getting outscored in the ncaa by other players his own age and yet many here have him as the 3rd best forward in the draft.
Who do you project better into the NHL moving forward Caser, Kravtsov or Denisenko?
Very tough question for me, as I already mentioned in another thread, i like Kravtsov more and his KHL performance obviously is something impressive, yet it is important to remember that Denisenko is half year younger and at this age it really matters.
First game in KHL against SKA today. In first line with Kontiola and Talbot instead of Kozun
Had pretty good game today for Lokomotiv, laid a really good hit on Prokhorkin who didn't keep his head up. Which resulted in a series of roughing and fighting from both sides. Denisenko was then targeted by SKA players, namely Voynov. Btw Slava also fought 18 years old Kovalenko a bit later, tough guy.
P.S. Not sure if khl mediaplayer is working for you, it's pretty awful for us too tbh.
Loko should go after Tikhonov the next match. Picking on a 17 year old because of a clean hit is a punk move.
I think Tikhonov actions were justified. The hit was clean but he couldn't have known that and Prokhorkin was pretty shook after it. It's pretty common in NHL to go after the guy even if he laid a clean but really hard hit so it's no different here, he got welcomed to the men's hockey so to say. But when SKA players went for Denisenko later it was a bit too much, Voynov's multiple cross-checkings and then his fight with 18 years old Kovalenko weren't something to be proud of tbh.
I understand the reasoning, but I don't like grown men going after kids. Go after their teammates. I think that is or should be one of the unwritten rules of these fights.
Didn't Nizhnekamsk do that to Kravtsov in the last round of the playoffs? I don't like any of it. I think its similar to when a goon in the NHL goes after skill players. If fighting is going to have a place in the sport, let it be between the guys who have that as their designated role or at least experienced players. Skill guys and kids/rookies shouldn't be picked on and egged into it.
Well I think his age didn't matter at the moment, Tikhonov just stood up for his partner. It wouldn't have made sense to go after someone else when it was Denisenko who took out Prokhorkin. He probably didn't even know who it was and what's his age, it was in heat of the moment. And Thikhonov isn't a fighter or goon himself, he was just all fired up after scoring 2 goals.
In situations like these some other older Loko guys had to step up and protect the kid. Why Talbot didn't do it? Korshkov really stood up for kids later in the game although he himself isn't much older.
Nizhnekamsk is another matter, Dirty Naz at it again.
Mrs.Prokhorkin should man up. Going down like that after a hit by a guy with a cage is embarassing. And SKA should suck up their emotions and admit those Loko kids are fighting well.
When you're playing with grown men you're one of them. I'm sure Denisenko doesn't have a problem with that.
Scored in MHL play-offs:
Denisenko vs Shafigullin MHL regular: 9+13 in 31 games vs 20+16 in 22 games
Denisenko vs Shafigullin MHL playoffs: 3+2 in 6 games vs 4+10 in 6 games
And they say Denisenko should be picked in the 1st round.
Denisenko got disqualified for 3 games tho so we'll have to wait for their matchup.
Stats can be deceiving, Shafigullin is part of the only producing lines in his team and in Loko all 4 lines are decent and producing pretty much equally.
Reaktor has 2 producing lines. They just produce really well - 4 Reactors players lead the scoring race.
Not going to Under-18's due to some sort of fall out with Hockey Russia. Who knows what it is over.
Yet another Red Flag?
that's idiotic. is rotenberg on the team by the way?
They didn't invite Kravtsov last year, and this year it's Denisenko. Kinda weird coach decision, to say the least. And of course they never say, why.
The reasoning was injury. Denisenko claims to be healthy, but what wouldn't a player say to protect his stock?
Let's see if he plays in the MHL finals.
