Simple question - can Provorov overdo one of the greatest Soviet / Russian defenseman of all time?
It's far too early to tell, but do you really think Provorov is going to become arguably the best Russian D of all time?
Provorov's good but come on this is Fetisov, easily.
Sure, he could be better. But probably not.
Personally I'm not sold we've seen Fetisov's ceiling yet. Redo this poll when he's 75.
Fetisov is Top 10 defenders of all time lol. I doubt Provorov will reach that level
This. He may have a better NHL career than Fetisov, but that's a completely different discussion.
I guess it's (remotely) possible, but I find it incredibly unlikely.
What is this.
Fetisov is quite possibly a top ten defenceman ever and was possibly the best defenceman in the world for a few years in the early 80s. That's a very tall, unrealistic order for Provorov.
Unless Provorov is elite defensively (like Doughty level D) and scoring 60-70 points a season, then no.
Fetisov career high in nhl was around 40 points
I'm confused about why this matters since Fetisov's prime happened years before he was in the NHL.
Fetisov is condiered a top 10 Dman of all-time.... How do you even start to compare?
Why stop there? Why not Bobby Orr?
Was thinking the same thing. It's crazy unfair to compare a 20 year old kid to a top-10 D of all time. Provorov is very talented though. With his style and personality, he looks like Ray Bourque's illegitimate son.
People who didn't vote for Fetisov obviously don't know who he was.
Holy overreaction Batman
At Provorov's age Fetisov already was the best Soviet defenseman (alright, probably tied with Vasilyev) and one of the best in the world.
I am the biggest Provorov fan but lets relax a little, and stop comparing him to someone like Fetisov. I do however think he will easily be the best blueliner in his draft year; he is just amazing and so cool on the ice.
I'm waiting two or three more years until I can judge that. It's incredibly unlikely.
No. Fetisov is clearly a Top-10 D of all-time, and in my opinion, he's Top-7. So, no, absolutely not. And I'm a Flyers fan who loves Provorov.
Hold your horses there. Provy is good but Fetisov is an all-time great.
lol what is this
Fetisov was also underrated as a mean SOB. Very tough.
