    Russianprospects.com reported that he was injured in Dynamo's previous game--he did not play in today's game (a 6-0 win over Amur ..1G+2 A for Igor Mirnov).....but you need "premier" coverage to access the whole story on their site? Any RSL watchers who post to this board have the scoop? Is it a serious injury for Malkin?

    It's on the Metallurg (sp?) official website as simply being a serious concussion. The rough translation says there isn't an exact timetable for his return but he could be out at least until April.

    My sports day is going just great......the Caps just dealt Bondra for not near enough and the guy I most want them to get in the draft (the one consolation from this unbearable season) has gotten a serious enough concussion to keep him out almost 2 months...this is just lovely! :mad:

    The Olesz/Malkin concussions are definitely bad news for whoever ends up picking 2nd. Probably no biggie in the long run, though.

    I agree.
    This coming draft will be interesting: Barker value is dropping and both Malkin and Olesz had concussions and this is enough to keep them out of the top 5.
    Anyway the popular top four of the boards "Ovechkin, Malkin, Olesz. Barker" is not going to happen IMO.

    Why is Barker's stock falling?

    Malkin is still an unbelievable talent, too much to pass up at number two.

    Well, 5th in the NA mid ranking isn't that good and I read somewhere that many scouts would take Green before him.

    Well CSB is obviously not the answer. First, they are often way off, and second they're more of a reflection of something wrong than the source.

    My question was "WHY" is his stock falling?

    His play from what I've heard has been superb, numbers are here to back it up.
    What's wrong?

    Any team that has a top five pick, and is looking for a gamebreaking offensive talent will take a long look at Schremp IMO.

    Sorry but that gave me an eerie reminder of the 1999 draft and a fellow named Patrik Stefan.

    I don't recall if Stefan had concussions then or continues to. Does he?

    He's not exactly panning out, but I'm not so sure injuries have anything to do with it.

    He did have more than one concussion before being drafted....mostly in the IHL.

    Actually he only played like 20 some games in his draft year because of a concussion.

    Sounds like a Thrasher's scout!

    (reference to drafting Stefan after a series of concussions and a question about his medical records)
