what ever happened to this kid wasn't he going to be the next Paul Karyia??
He's in a big slump but he's only 20 I think so he has lots of time to turn it around.
was he ever drafted? cause I was just reading about the 2001 draft and he was going to go in the top 3 what happened?
type in: chistov, 2001 draft
And you will know... It's magic.
He was the 5th overall pick by the Ducks.
He has only one goal until now but lead the team in assists.
Well, watching Anaheim this don't mean much, he is struggling just like the rest of the team.
Anyway he's very talented, I still think he's gonna be a great player.
I'm disappointed in him.
He showed signs of greatness in last year's playoffs. Now he doesn't look the same. Perhaps a general team slump and his youth combine to make for a bad situation for him. Still, I expect his talent to shine through sometimes. He'll break out of it (I think so anyway) but this season is really disheartening.
Same here. I thought he'd be better than that.
And after all, Redline did go on record stating their belief that Chistov was the best pure player in his draft class
Ducks this years Hurricanes and Sophmore Jinx....a year or two form now..our tunes will be changed....
There is no doubt in my mind that Chistov will be a very good player in this league for a long time.
I agree. With the Ducks struggling neither Fedorov nor Prospal emerge. Nuff said.
Give him credit, he plays well but simply he can't score goals this year.
Moreover the Ducks score something like two goals per game, not much thought.
He's been jinxed this year and has hit more posts than any other Ducks player.
He's only twenty.. he just needs time. Will he be a better goalscorer than Kovalchuk? No. Will he be a better playmaker? I think so.
