    I believe this year team had best stock on centers for a long time. Khovanov, Voronkov, Morozov, Alexandrov have some potential and skill.

    btw, loved to watch the line of Podkolzin - Morozov - Marchenko to play for the SKA yesterday against Dynamo Moscow. They looked better than many established players like Plotnikov and Koskiranta.

    Hopefully these young kids start to break up the lineups of good KHL teams more often in the future.

    While I agree that CHL route isn't the best option for Russian prospects, staying with their home teams isn't always ideal either.

    Prospects from top KHL teams like SKA, CSKA, etc seem to have it the worst. They are often times blocked from playing time by veteran players.

    I wish there would more "loan" transfers in KHL, where top teams with surplus of talent send talented youngsters to lower teams where they will get more playing time.

    If you look at the top Russian players right now, a significant percentage of them developed by getting playing time for mid-to-lower KHL teams.

    Tarasenko and Zaytsev with Sibir
    Panarin with Vityaz
    Kuzy with Traktor
    Dadonov with Traktor, then Donbass
    Bob, Orlov and Kaprizov in Novokuznetsk
    Varly and Gavrikov with Loko

    That's the most ideal route, clearly.

    For the last 2 years in the WJC, Russia has had, at least arguably, the best players on the ice, but has found a way to lose. Nothing comforting about that. I favor turning the page on the coaching staff, but I would be interested to hear other solutions. Like every other team, Russia should be motivated only by Gold.

    Larionov is officially taking over. As some of you might now I am not a fan. I don't want this man anywhere near russian hockey for what he represents. But he has some very big shoes to fill. Let's see what happens, but I am definitely less excited about russain U20 NT games from now on.

    Ths also means Bragin is most certainly getting a job with seniors. Probably both SKA and NT even.

    While I understand that it is a pretty likely scenario, "officially" is not exactly the right word here, at least yet.

    I guess it is official enough now.

    I don't like it one bit.
