    I'm still shocked but at the very least we got rid of something (albeit something good) that was perceived as a problem by Stevie and we got help on defense which we needed and also sorted out potential protection and cap issues.

    Sergachev might be a bit too unproven for us really to make this trade but I think he'll be a good one, not sure how good though and if his game of walking the blueline and cutting down the middle in the offensive zone will translate.

    Ran across an IIHF article about Sergachev from just before the last game of the Memorial Cup.

    Hedman, by the numbers, was the best PP QB in the league last year. Not sure about Sergachev passing him anytime soon as Hedman is getting noticeably better every season. Having 2 guys who can play that role will help our PP a ton though, I agree.

    I can think of a couple of reasons. Russia plays 11 - 7 so less minutes all around. Can't confirm but from watching it seems he played on third pairing. He also played on second PP not first who got most of the minutes. And last reason I can think of ... he was young for the U20 team. The tourney is dominated by players on last year of junior eligibility ... he still has one more year of U20 WJC eligibility and he is on the younger side of of his own year draft mates.

    I don't expect him to make the team. He'll go back to Junior ... this is the year where he'll see first PP minutes and be on the first pairing for the WJC U20. We should see him dominate this year.

    Key to note as well outside the WJC ... on his junior team he played both sides. Either Sean May or Sergachov played every defensive shift. They both played 30 minutes plus Sean May comes on ... Sergachov comes off...Sergachov comes on and Sean May comes off. They played both of them like this throughout the Calder ... he logged a TON of minutes.

    Many Russian names have diminutives that are for use by relatives and friends only e.g. Vladimir becomes Volodya, Viktor becomes Vika, Aleksandr becomes Sasha, Mikhail becomes Misha.

    EDIT: Since you bring up Rexxar, LS, I think interestingly that there is a diminutive for bears that is similar. Masha? Perhaps geoo9 or kshadoo will help me remember.

    This is a must watch/read for all Bolts fans. I have seen Serg do these plays over and over again. He controls so much of the game because of the things he does. If he is able to bring this to the pro level Tampa will have a fantastic D/man for years to come. Misha had great success two seasons ago when the Spits acquired Brendan Lemieux. On the power play Serg would feed him for one timers in the same spot Stammer likes to hammer the puck
