    What are the chances that these guys will make the NHL?
    Who do you like better between these 2 offensive defensemen?

    I don't know anything about Macias but I thought Russel looked terrific in training camp.

    He is on the smaller side but this kid has world class skill and I thought he used his size effectively in the defensive zone. A young Brian Rafalski immediately came to mind when I watched this kid.

    I think he has an extremely good shot at making the NHL. I was puzzeled as to why he got sent back to the juniors so quickly - I would have liked to have seen him in a preseason game or two.

    HF writer Guy Flaming has seen Russell play a lot and is extremely high on him. For a detailed report I'd suggest you PM or email him.

    Thanks. I heard that Russell would be up there with Jack Johnson if he had a bit more size. Nice to hear that he's been as advertised in training camp.
