    Is Marchenko on the team? Is there a link to the roster?

    Solid roster of KHL/MHL guys.

    Bragin said around 5 CHL players will likely be added for WJC-U20. I think Grigorenko might be too young (1994). Kabanov wants to play, but must first prove himself with a productive upcoming season.

    :dunno:
    Potekhin - Namestnikov - Kuznetsov
    Lyubimov - Khokhlachev - Yakupov
    Gusev - Telegin - Kucherov
    Galiev - Apalkov - Zemchenko

    Marchenko - Ozhiganov
    Arzamastsev - Isangulov
    Antipin - Gurkin
    whoever - whoever

    Makarov
    Kostenko

    Some kind of a new Russian trend for the past couple of years, Russia getting out shot- even by weaker opponents. They still win a lot, but anyway:

    Shots: 38 Czechs- Russia- 27
    Pentalties: Czechs 18 Russia 30

    I think it just comes down to individual skill and finishing, Russia's least problem, and Defense being the most problematic.

    I would switch Lyubimov and Telegin, keep OHL and Red Army guys together for sure

    A. Pedan has played for the Russians in the past.

    If he starts having a big year in the OHL, does anyone think he may start getting a good look for this year's Team Russia entry?

    Gotta love FHR, how hard is it nowadays to get a guy with a camera, any camera and at least take some pictures. I'm not even talking TSN kind of coverage where they have daily features on their U20..

    Russia could skate a really good team this year.

    by the way i made a tribute for Russia world junior team in buffalo 2011

    Shalunov needs to step up this season. He had a poor season compared to his projected developement last year. Nothing to do with being in a shadow of Kuznetsov.

    To me, he looks to have a pretty low hockey IQ and struggles to make good decisions on the ice.

    Is he similar to teammate Anton Burdasov? I noticed that of Burdasov at the WJC; great tools but no toolbox.

    Kucherov is showing that U-18 explosion wasn't a fluke.

    Russia is stacked when it comes to forwards but as always defense seems to be the weak link.

    Defense is weaker, but I wouldn't call it weak. It's as usual, we have good offensive defensme, and mediocre defensively.

    Yes, good comparison. When I watched them play for their MHL team, that was exactly the case. They would pull off something nice, but usually at the wrong time and couldn't finish what they started.

    Too often you would find Shalunov trying to deke the defense and take a shot from the slot (most of the time unsuccessfully) while his team is changing lines..

    Who knows, maybe coaches will teach him the "When" part.

    Hope, Kucherov will set another record - for WJHC. Would be interesting then to see all those explaining why he's a 2nd rounder...

    The defense will solid. However, for as good as Marchenko is, this year's team will be missing a player the level of Orlov...a guy who was able to, by himself, elevate the defense to a much higher level.
