    That's why I didn't want that Worlds for Belarus. Now I just hope it's a kind of insurance for the worst scenario. After all they also established a semblance of salary cap which probably will keep decent legios from the league.
    Lol such a mess!

    Ilya Usov has made his USHL debut, left no mark on the scoresheet, but the fact itself is worth noting.

    Fortunately, the federation, after a huge wave of negative reaction from fans, edited/cancelled some of projected changes. 28-and-older players limit will be 7 players per team (instead of projected 5) and legios may be from any country, not only Russia-Kazakhstan-Ukraine.
    And the federation denies that they intended to naturalize Russian players.

    There was an understandable level of backlash on every hockey related webpage I saw in past month, so no wonder federation caved. Now watch them dish out a passport to Osipov next spring :D

    I tried to look at his signing and resigning from different angles, including his possible naturalization, but it still makes no sense for me. The only good thing in Osipov is his last name. It's way easier to avoid BalticWarrior's attacks having Osipov in NT roster than having Bailen :)

    I guess it's time to make a humble prediction on draft chances of belarusian players.

    NHL Draft
    Yeryomenko
    still Sharangovich
    and let's say Sapego.

    CHL Import draft (in decreasing order of likelihood):
    Alistrov
    Kolyachonok
    Kazyanin
    Stepanov
    Protas
    Oksentyuk
    Barkovsky

    I'll give you Yeryomenko. Sapego is a decent wildcard, but in my eyes Sharangovich simply isnt an NHL material despite his somewhat superior ceiling.

    Well I'm probably biased about Sharangovich. Plus in the lack of attention of the NHL to belarusians, getting players drafted becomes a kinda competition itself, no matter if they'd ever have a shot in the league :)

    I would not go as far and say that there is some sort of lack of attention as such. Who were the players in past years that should have been drafted and weren't? Prospect quality is only now picking up and with bunch of players playing CHL every year it is impossible to say that NHL is not looking at them, they just find them not worth drafting.

    I didn't mean to say that it is caused with indiffirence or prejudice or something. Sure, it's all about quality.

    You basically nailed NHL draft, eagerly waiting how close you will be with your CHL prediction. As now it again is possible to draft goalies, maybe Tolopilo gets picked even though I like him less than Sharangovich. :sarcasm:

    With goalies being drafted this list mostly makes no sense, I'll be happy if we get 2 or 3 players drafted no matter who.
    Anyway I'd change few names by now though. No Barkovski and Masilevich instead of Oksentyuk.

    * which doesn't mean that I expect goalies from Belarus instead of mentioned players, but means that a lot of goalies expected to be drafted leaves little room for field players, which makes it harder to compete against top-nations players.

    Few updates.
    Sharangovich is signed by NJ Devils.
    Alistrov and Stepanov are signed by their WHL clubs and there are rumours of some other junior players have signed deals with CHL clubs.

    Belarus U17 ntdp (2002-2003-born players) outscored Brest-2 and Shakhter-2 in exhibition games respectively 12:2 and 7:1. These kids seem to be going to dominate Belarus-2 league this season.

    Yes, I noticed that, too.
    I guess North-West team is the (or one of the) reserve team for Russia u17.
