    Does anyone know his thoughts on coming to NA rather sooner than later? SKA is not a good place for development when they know a player won't resign with them, as Rangers fans are learning with Rykov and Shestyorkin.

    This guy has got an amazing ability to keep the puck in front of him/on his stick through traffic.

    Datsyuk-esque. Really exciting player to watch.

    That way, he is like every other SKA player. Either the situation for him to come will have to be really good or he will take his sweet time (and paychecks). Knowing this everybody will pass until Washinton drafts him and wins the cup in 2027 or something :sarcasm:

    SKA will probably lose Gusev and Barabanov next year. Prokhorkin as well. Dats isn't getting younger. So it's going to be a lot of spare spots on the roster. Especially as to offense.

    You don't have to worry. They are already scouting other KHL rosters. :help:

    Is he going to be a center or winger long term?

    Looks like he plays only at wing now.

    Good stuff Caser... that kind of talk might scare a few teams and lead to him falling a few spots.

    Edit: replied to the wrong quote... meant to reply to Caser's post directly above mine

    To add onto this....

    Said he won't come to the NHL until he is ready and won't play in juniors or the minors. Wants to mature as a man and come over with his family. He said he doesn't know English well. Currently has a 3-year deal with SKA. That might hurt his stock a bit.

    But if you read the article, he seems like a very logical and humble kid. Mentioned that his favorite players are Kuznetsov and Ovechkin and that he'd rather go a year without sex than a year without hockey. :laugh:

    My favorite quote was this....

    Date or training?

    - Training. I have a girlfriend. And this does not bother me.

    I took the time to translate that whole thing, good stuff even if some was lost in translation. Interesting guy for sure.

    When he's stuck in the VHL he might have different ideas about coming over.

    I get a feeling SKA youngsters aren't too bothered with being stuck in the VHL. 1) they are still getting paid relatively well; 2) they still live in St. Petersburg; 3) they have the big club nearby - all medical, training facilities, etc.; 4) they get called up for some garbage minutes fairly regularly; 5) you play for the VHL title against pretty good competition every year.

    One thing you have to give SKA credit for - players are pretty happy to be playing for them. There are exceptions (Chudinov, Khokhlachev) but those are mostly players in their prime, not the youngsters.

    Panarin and Dadonov beg to differ.

    He's just trying to steal my heart, that's why. Such an exciting prospect.

    It's pretty insane. Can't remember a prospect that has done it before. Definitely a guy I wouldn't mind dawning an Avs sweater next summer.

    Yah i dont understand how every goal is so nice. Like does he just always go for the hail-mary, one-man-team play every time and we only see it when it works??

    He had some nice passes and scored some nice one-timers at Hlinka.

    Iirc, in the interview that was discussed earlier he told something that coach recommended him to go by himself if he thinks that he can improve things that way (unless his linemates have a better situation, of course).

    Good decision. No reason for any Russian to play American/Canadian juniors/minors. History has showed that 99,9% of them failed to make the world elite level if chosed American/Canadian juniors/minors.
