    Very exciting news, both for the Flyers fans and for the Count (tm @BernieParent). Looking forward to seeing him develop! Well earned contract

    Thanks for the nickname nod. It is presently in the Player Nicknames Subcommittee, co-chaired, I believe, by DFF and Beef. We should have a definite conclusion in three to six nevers.

    I don't care if anyone else does, but I'm calling him either Ye-Z, or E-Z...Depending on if he goes by Yegor or Egor (I've seen both).

    I promise you, that is not going to survive the deluge of abuse I am going to unleash on it.

    His stick must be 7 feet, so we have an excuse if he struggles.

    The key with Zamula, like all physically undeveloped players, is how his game changes as his body fills out - in three years, at 6'3 200 (assuming his frame can carry that much weight) will he add/subtract speed and quickness? That's probably the toughest part of scouting, a kid who's close to fully developed at 18 is an easy projection, a kid who needs to add 30 lbs is somewhat of a mystery. Even NFL scouts, looking at 21-22 year olds, have to make that project, imagine how harder that is with 18 year olds.

    Is it just about Flyers' heritage that they seem to sleep well over drafting a 6'5" behemoth in the early rounds that can't handle the puck and needs to catch up for years to even that out, like Ginning or Morin, but at the same time they are so tentative about spending picks on slim and small D that have obvious skill but need to fill out?

    To me it sounds rather easy to give the latter type a nutrition plan and tell him to eat enough cheesesteak to gain weight because the rest is in there already.
    Does anybody have an example where gaining 30 pounds ruined a high ceiling prospect?

    Maybe? I remember something about the Leaves wanting him to bulk up, but the extra weight really slowed him down.

    Luke Schenn was just a kid who was kind of maxed out by around his draft on top of being a dying breed. After Schenn & others they started looking for guys with his profile who could at least skate well like Tinordi, Oleksiak, Morin, Zadorov, etc. but these past few years even guys like that don’t find themselves in the first round anymore either.

    I was actually trying to think of someone who once COULD skate and COULD handle the puck before he bulked up and all was gone.

    Not a Luke Schenn type of broad shouldered hitting machine built as a prototypical shut-down D.

    This is some sort of lengthy news story done in Russian on the legend, Zamula. Hopefully one of our Russian friends like @Caser & @CSKA1974 will stop by and translate or give us any tidbits.



    Feel free to tag any of our other Russian friends who might want to see this.
