    A good friend of mine was saying this kid looks like the next best thing from Russia. Basically said he's an amazing offensive talent but didn't have a good read on him.

    Has anyone seen him play? or have a report on this kid? Is he up there with Ovechkin?

    Thank you.

    Also, was he at the U-17 tournament in St. Johns last year? I'm recieving a tape of the tournaments final two games, well I see him?

    He's not up there with Ovechkin, but he's damn talented. I'd say he's more in the range of Zherdev. I don't think he'll be #1, but he has a great chance of top 5. And I don't think he'll drop.

    he is 2006 ranked (88 born), he is suppose to be the 1st overall pick, and reports that I am hearing is that he has the ability to be better than Kovalchuck. He is putting up better numbers for his age than guys like Ovechkin and Kovalchuck put up and people are saying he could be the better talent of the wave of the Russians here.


    I will see him at this years U17s in Lethbridge when I go so I will get a better read on his then.

    From what I have heard he wasn't really spectacular in the 4-nations tournament held in Sweden this past season. Vasyunov scored 3 goals, 0 assists in 3 games which obviously is respectable, but from what I gathered there were other Russians that stood out more... such as Popov (forward) and Kutdusov (defenseman).
    I also heard that Russia had two interesting/good goalies in the tournament, one named Varlamov, but the other ones name escapes me at the moment.. grr
    oh well :)

    I belive a poster named «Guillaume» on the Russian board told me that his incredible stats were mostly due to lack of competitivness in his area, since most of the other talanted kids were form «Ural» region.. but that was maybe a year ago.

    I don't think he's as feisty or cocky as Kovalchuck. So I say more like a Zherdev for that main reason.

    You can say that in any Youth AAA type league though.... with the exception of the GTHL maybe?

    I know when a top nhler from Kingston plays AAA they usually dominant

    Derek Roy from Ottawa in Major Bantam had 92 points in 36 games.. 64 goals.. wow
