    From mr bugg's mock:

    Just as quickly, the question marks began to disappear when he was named the best forward at the 5-Nations tournament in February and after a strong performance at the World U18s. Gone from his game were the all-to-commonplace stretches of coasting and apathy. What replaced it was sheer domination.

    Anyone watch Vasyunov during these tournaments? Could he have turned the ''proverbial'' corner?

    He was Russia's leading scorer at the 5 Nations with 3 goals in 4 games. As for turning the corner, from what I understand he didn't really excell at the U-18's a few months later, put up some points but it wasn't a breakout tournament.

    I would say Vasyunov was very, very far from showing "complete domination" at the U18s. He was obviously skilled but not all that productive, overshadowed even by his own linemate Anisimov.
