    So far so good! I thought his stats were great because of Grigorenko(in Russia) but looks like the guy is a real deal!

    Hes on quite a tear recently...I am not sure what kind of NHL potential he has...he isnt very big, 5'11 170...and he isnt very quick, but he has great vision, hands, hockey sense...will be interesting to see what happens.

    One would have to think he is a power play specialist at the next level. He is kind of a PP specialist at the QMJHL level. His stride is short (like so many) and he doesn't get much out of it. His shot is pretty much non existent as well. I would imagine his goals have been tap ins do to his excellent smarts. If someone were to improve his skating to the point that he is average for his size, he would be interesting moving forward. At this point Shalimov probably projects better for the NHL.

    Shalimov is also a year older...

    Kamaev's skating isnt bad...his technique is fine...and he is very skinny if youve seen him off the ice...he has an immature build...once he gets stronger his skating will improve.

    Kamaev seems to pull of amazing set-ups every game...I havent seen a kid with his vision in some time...he seems to have a 6th sense out there and you cant teach that.

    180 lbs at 5'10 is not that skinny though, its more stocky for that height.

    There are things wrong with his stride, it is short. He is missing out on the first 3rd of his stride. I agree with the vision and passing ability. If you read my report I had a lot of great things to say about him from the blueline in.

    I prefer to go by what my eyes see than what some sheet of paper tells me...

    Im not saying his stride is perfect but saying Shalimov has more upside is silly...thats just my opinion.

    It depends if you feel Kamaev is a PP specialist at the next level. You must remember the 2 games I seen of Shalimov he had 5 points with 3 goals, none on the PP. Invisible for a good portion then he explodes out of nowhere.

    He has 6 goals on the year so you basically watched him score half of his season output over the course of 2 games...I can see why you are high on him :)

    Im not saying I dont like Shalimov...but there really is no comparison in my opinion...Shalimov to me looks like a 6th-7th rounder and Kamaev a kid who could go in the top 90.

    I agree on Kamaev, I have yet to see a prospect with better hands in this year's draft. When you match the hands with his passing/playmaking ability, you can create a lot of offense below the hashmarks.
