    Since I have been in hibernation since the lockout, I am looking for a little info. Which of these players do you see having solid seasons? How about a few years down the road:

    Zherdev
    Semin
    Hemsky
    Zinovjev

    I don't know much about Zinovjev...Zherdev, Semin and Hemsky are all very similar players. Hemsky, however, seems like a player whose hands excel in tight spaces around the goal (think Hejduk), while Zherdev and Semin have better hands in open ice. Zherdev and Semin play virtually identical games, using crazy moves around the perimeter and then slicing into the slot to take a wicked wrister. I'd say Zherdev has the best overall goal scoring instincts, but Semin is probably more creative and has a better wrist shot.
