    Now, I'm not saying this player has the mental makeup of Berezin or anything so don't flame me. ;)

    But It hit me last night sometime in the second period.

    He's a little on the small side.
    He's got rifle of a wrist shot and is accurate with it.
    He can dangle.
    He doesn't skate as well as his peers.

    Am I totally off base with this comparison??

    I've never seen this guy other than two games in this tournament, so I could be totally wrong, but even his skating style reminds me of Berezin. :dunno:

    I don't think Berezin could ever danlge though.. He had one inside outside move, but that stopped working after a while and he became useless..

    Hluchy wouldn't mind a 37 goal season in the NHL - Like Berezin had. ;)

    You forgot the most important Berezin criterion: does not pass the puck. Ever. ;)

    I think I made it very clear that I was comparing the physical attibutes of the two players.

    nope, not really actually.

    Berezin's Toronto stats are actually pretty impressive on the surface from start to end. Three 20+ goal seasons and a 37 one. Thank god the Coyotes got Markov as well.. could you get two more different Russians in attitude / aggressiveness?? A good bloke though.
