    Well if Samorukov can play top 4 D-man minutes for a club of this caliber then I would say pencil him into the starting 6 for the Oilers next season.

    It's never smart to pencil in prospects, things can always change between now and the start of next season.

    That said, he definitely has a legit shot at making the team.

    Hands down my favorite Oilers prospect and I ranked him #1 on our prospect pool

    As some of the guys on the thread have said, there are no guarantees that the KHL game evolves to the NHL but you have to think that with the D-men we have that he has a very good shot at making the club next season.

    I think we can't go too far with the current defense so I hope that by the end of this season Bouchard and Lagesson are at least semi-regulars on the roster and that next season Samorukov and possibly Broberg join them.

    You almost have to wonder if he will join the team after the KHL season is over. It ends at the end of February, but his team is pretty good IIRC, so there is the chance they go deep into playoffs as well, so he might not be available for a while after that I suppose.

    Its the old Red Army team and they are always good so yes they might go a long way into the post season.

    Regardless, Sammy might be as good as anybody the Oil currently have so bring him in for a look see.

    Romanov looks ok right now, and he played on the same team and had worse statistics. He was 1.5 years younger, though.

    The good news is that Samorukov has played in NA in both the OHL and the AHL. In his draft plus 2 year he was absolutely dominant at both ends of the ice down the stretch and in the OHL playoffs. His offensive game blossomed when he no longer had to baby sit for Merkely who had no clue that defensemen had to defend. I suspect he might take some time to show that offensive side of his game in the NHl bacuase he does seem to think defense first. But I'd be surprised if he deos not become a solid NHL'er at the very least.

    Even if no real offense emerges, I like his rep as a "shut down" guy because this is what the Oil really need. Good positional hockey and skill at reading the ice is our number one need. Right now I don't see any D-men who are really good at these vital skills.

    Better go look at some of his fights . Lots of them weren't defending a team mate and cost us .

    I'm calling it now. Sams played the KHL and AHL. He'll be an Oiler next season

    The sooner he gets into the Oiler lineup the better.

    Even if CSKA goes to the finals they’ll likely be done by the end of April. Samorukov might be able to help the team out down the stretch here this year.

    I'm glad samorukov is showing so well, but isn't a big difference between he and Romanov is Romanov's skating?

    Sammy is great all but we also have Lagesson, Jones, and Bouchard that need playing time or need to be traded. TOO many young D.

    I don't see Romanov in NHL as some elite skating D like Hughes. Samorukov is taller/bigger/lankier and has a big shot and hits hard. I compare him to Petry but others here say Gavrikov. Sammy can deke and skate into the O-zone like a forward just like Petry.

    I didn't think Sammy's skating was that good, but if he can the Oilers will be laughing

    Lagesson is a nothing prospect. Jones I don’t mind but I’ve always liked Samurokov better. Maybe we end up trading Jones at some point. Sammy brings a different element.

    I think Lagesson is underrated. He will be an NHL regular. His foot speed is lacking but he's been consistently the best Condors D. Jones was a tire-fire (the decisions in his own zone were baffling) until last season.

    IMO Lagesson moves the puck better than Larsson and Russell. I think he could replace them permanently.

    +26 is good for second in the league and first for all D. His PIMs are low also.
