    Who's the better prospect? Can anyone who has seen them give me some insight into their strenghts and weaknesses. Do either have a chance of making their teams this season, and if so, what would you expect their output to be and who do you see as their linemates?

    Thanks for the input.

    p.s. I know that neither of them are Ovechkin, so you don't have to bother mentioning it.

    But Ovechkin is better! How can you talk about someone else?

    Shishkanov has done very well so I'd probably pick him.

    Shishkanov isn't my bowl of soup, i'd rather have Svatos on my team.

    Shishkanov is IMO, the most underrated prospect among forwards, along with Polushin that is.

    Had a chance to watch Timofay in the Admiral Amerk series and he was unnoticeable for both games I watched and he was unheard from in the ones I listened too.

    Don't know enough about either, but Svatos is in the NHL so...

    Does Shishkanov have attitude problems?

    I'd take Shishkanov, but not so much for the potential/talent difference.....as the injury issues with Svatos. Svatos has top-notch skills make no doubt about it, but his recent history of consecutive shoulder injuries could spell the end of any type of NHL career he could have.

    he was just coming back from a 4 week ankle injury, and supposedly tried to come back a little too soon. from that point on, he was night in and night out the admirals best forward, and was arguably their best forward all season.

    re: attitude problems, not that i know of. he's a little defensively oblivious, but he's a very hard worker and well liked among this teammates\milwaukee fans.

    He sort of reminded me of a less effective Milan Bartovic.

    Svatos showed good things and is a legitimate NHler. He will most rpobably be a good one too. I just bellieve that Shishkanow is the man to get here, he has that habiliti to dominate... he remind me of a young Valeri Kamensky. It's jsut amazing to see how he can just dance around defencemaen... Great hockey sense... I'd take Sish even if not a regular NHLer like Svatos
