    Central scouting has him 40 of NA skaters.I've seen him plenty.He's a good fast
    skater with good stickhandling abilities.He holds on to the puck too much sometimes
    but overall he's adjusting to the game in N.A. pretty well.I'd like to see him be
    a little more physical but for a first time Euro he's not bad and has fit in well
    here with the Rocket.He played well in the prospects game.He might go better
    than 40 NA IMO.

    Surefire 2nd-3rd rounder

    His game is well enough rounded that he might actually sneak into the first round.

    I have seen him only for the second time at the CHL prospect game, and I must say he was pretty impressive. He may be on the small side at 5-10 or so, but the guy's got wheels and is a pretty good stickhandler also. He was among the best forwards for Team Davidson and had a few nice speed bursts that led to scoring chances. The guy's got a reputation of being a very selfish player, though. I guess that's just part of being a goal-scorer... still, I could see some team take a chance on him in day-one of the draft, probably in the 45-60 range. Too much skill to pass on IMO.

    He is 6'01

    Size isnt a problem for Slava.

    He will be a top 50 pick more than likely.

    I was just guessing about his size, probably because he doesn't really play like he is 6-1 and because of his hunched-down skating style. But you're right though, I could see him get picked in the top 50 too.

    yeah he looks smaller than he is.

    He has too much skill to drop deep into round 2.

    Early 2nd rounder IMO. I'd put him in the top 40.
