Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by All Star United, Jan 21, 2006.
How has he been playing this year? Whill he make it to the NHL? If so, when?
Probably not, and never.
At this point the answer points to no NHL for this young forward, but the Bruins should give him a try. His style of game would make sense in North America. He doesn't see the ice all that well, but is physically gifted and has a lot of talent. He hasn't developed well over the past several seasons, but has made some improvements this year under Plyuschev, at least spending the entire season in the Super League and playing better overall. I hope he is signed by the Bruins to at least get him into the AHL, but I am not sure what his status is as far as his own intersterest. Attitude has always been an issue with him. It's nothing super bad, but he has an ego, though he does listen to coaches etc. I mean he was hailed to be a top 5 choice even by RP before his shoulder issues.
