    As a Flyers fan you should be aware where Provorov came to the CHL from, don't you?

    You are agenda driven if you deny facts like that.

    My only agenda is the wish for the russian NT to get better players. Like it or not. NHL is to me a farm league to the team a care the most about. And when I see the NHL and it's minors system having a negative effect at developing young russian talent I look for other options and obviously for Russians developing at home is a better option. Especially for forwards.

    Of course I know where he came from...and all I ever said about careers being ruined in Russia was that not all players, anywhere, are going to develop into NHLers.

    If your only care is for your national team to get better players...fine.

    But stop blaming our junior program for selective players who don't make it..it's ridiculous. There are plenty who don't make it who stay there. There are North Americans who play here and don't make it. In every sport.

    And if a Russian kid has a dream to play in the NHL, there's nothing wrong with him coming over to learn the language and get used to the culture, as long as he's mature enough. The same applies for kids here moving away from home to play...some of them just aren't ready for it without the culture shock and language barrier (though there are instances with French/English)

    Seen him play a few weeks back, was pretty underwhelming overall. He looked slow. Showcased some nifty mitts a few times, but other than that he was very quiet.

    Crystal ball isn't working with him.. so far anyways.. The Titans should get to the second round tho. His 2 way play has been excellent from what i've heard, the whole season.

    Well, he had 1 points in 6 games, struggling against his former team. Since that 1st round, he scored 8 points in 7 games with a +7 ratio. You'd think he cameback from an injury or something.. :sarcasm:

    So he's won the QMJHL, but 5+5 in 18 games for almost 20 yo player doesn't look very promising.

    Only player with more than 1 ppg is 20 yrs old. Next at 1 ppg is also 20. Defensive-minded team, what do you expect exactly? You dont like winning?

    And yet 9 guys on this defensive-minded team scored more than Rubtsov did. Certainly disappointing.

    They’re not a defensive minded team, they play good defence but don’t mistake them for a defense first squad. The team averaged 3.65 goals per game in the playoffs and 3.97 in the regular season. He had 53 points in 68 games for the Titan this year regular season and playoffs included.

    He was honestly invisible in the playoffs, he played on a line with their #1 C and didn’t produce like expected. I must admit he looked a lot better at the WJC then he did at any point during the season in Bathurst. I don’t know why he didn’t produce more but it wasn’t ever in the cards for him it seemed. When he was drafted I expected a two-way Top 6 C likely as his upside, the offence could still come together and become a top 6 forward but he definitely isn’t a C in the NHL. He’s horrible on the draws, played primarily the wing all season because of it and doesn’t have the upside I thought he did. I’d say he’s a 3rd/4th line winger at this point, if he can even produce enough to play in the NHL. This year was a major disappointment for him.

    He had a really disappointing year, there’s really no defense of it at this point. A former first round pick shouldn’t be below a PPG average as a 19-20 year old in juniors.

    I don’t know if he checked out down there or what but he was basically invisible in the few games I watched this year which seems to align with everything else.

    I wouldn’t completely write him off at this point as he does do things well off the puck but his stock has definitely taken a good hit. Next year in the AHL with the Phantoms is going to be huge for him.

    The Flyers' management just needs to give Rubtsov #51, tell Haktard that he's Filppula, and he'll be an NHL regular!
