    I think he'll produce, but he'll need a little bit of time to do it. He won't contend for any rookie-of-the-year honours, and might need to break in slowly before fully realising his offensive potential. Eventually, I think he will produce.

    I would compare him in that regard in some ways to a guy like Slava Kozlov... he can handle the puck and he can shoot or make plays, he's basically talented in all offensive areas. (Although he's a bit bigger and stronger on his skates and should eventually be more willing to play in traffic than Kozlov was). Or maybe a Sergei Zholtok, only again, smoother skater and more consistent. But that general kind of offensive impact. That would be my _prediction_. Sort of a 30-goal guy, with maybe a max season around a pt-per-game, but generally a bit lower. A solid 2nd line offensive player in today's game.

    That said, one always likes to predict a bit conservatively (well... maybe that's not so true around here!)... there is some chance that Perezhogin could emerge to be a larger offensive force than I've suggested, but that would have to count as a pleasant surprise for Habs fans. If Kastitsyn is the 1st line scoring winger for the team, I like Perezhogin backing him up as a 2nd line threat. A few years down the road. If all goes well.
