    I find him really similiar to Pavel Datsyuk. The kid has sick skills. Very good potential, and has the capabilities of becoming a 1st line center one day, but he will be kept behind Spezza, and they should form a very good 1-2 center punch.

    I've likes what I've seen so far. Looks like more of a playmaker than a goalscorer if you ask me.

    He'll likely be playing with Alfredsson and Vermette as the 2nd line centre, so I think 60 points isn't out of the question.

    He has all the skill in the world, once he gets his feet wet in the NHL he should be a dynamic offensive player for a good long while. 60 points is a fairly conservative guess for this season but it would be my best guess.

    Yeah, he's basically got the #2 center job to lose. As for whether or not he comes in as billed and performs is way up in the air, however he will be given every opportunity to make an impact. Reports say he'll either play on the Sens or go back to Russia, however this is all fuzzy at this point. We'll know for sure when he gets into town and certainly after camp.

    His skill set is unquestionable.

    His ability to withstand physical play is.

    So who's better, Grabovsky or Kaigorodov? They seem similar anyway.

    Kaigorodov, somewhat substantially. Although Grabovsky has shown that he can shine when he is the go-to guy.

    He's your prototypical pivot centreman. He won't take over games, but if he develops a better scoring touch to go with his passing, he can be a very effective player. Distrbuting the puck and breaking into the zone seem to be his stregths.
    Think B. Morrison if you're llooking for a comparison. Although he might be capable of playing on a 1st line eventually, it will be mostly as a compliment to one or more "dynamic" winger(s). At this point I wouldn't pencil him in as anything more than a second line player.
