    If i got it right only one player from current squad is eligible to play in next year championship... so any ideas of players which can make the team in 2012??

    we know Bragin prefers to work with players he knows (said it himself) therefore all team , except Bobkov being from KHL or MHL

    but looks like next year he will have to have a better look at north American leagues as players like Namestnikov, Khokhlachev, Yakupov are one of the top prospects....
    how will the 2012 Russian team compare to the gold winning team of 2011??

    I will write a player who has played at least one game in KHL this season.

    Amirov (D,´92) - Lokomotiv
    Potekhin (F,´92) - Magnitogorsk
    Apalkov (F,´92) - Magnitogorsk
    Arzamastsev (D,´92) - Novokuznetsk
    Galimov (F,´92) - Neftekhimik
    Isangulov (D,´92) - Salavat Yulayev Ufa
    Kartaev (F,´92) - Salavat Yulayev Ufa
    Zemchenko (F,´92) - Severstal
    Zheldakov (D,´92) - Spartak
    Palenga (D,´93) - Spartak
    Gogolev (F,´92) - Spartak
    Shalunov (F,´93) - Traktor
    Stepanov (D,´92) - CSKA
    Marchenko (D,´92) - CSKA
    Lyubimov (F,´92) - CSKA
    Gusev (F,´92) - CSKA

    And....

    Nesterov (D,´93) - Traktor but he has not played a single game in KHL this season
    Kucherov (F,´93) - CSKA junior team in MHL, has not played in KHL, but he is at 6th place in points in MHL

    and of course Kuznetsov

    The interesting part of this year's Russia's team is that the '91-born generation is a very weak prospect pool for them.

    There have been far more talented Russian teams in the past, but rarely did those teams play as organized as this one.

    The 2012 Russian team is going to be even better but younger but will have more gamebreakers.

    many are 1993, how many 92's were on the team this year? Goaltending becomes an issue - Kostenko, Makarov are the only experienced goalies so far.

    according to the prospects posted upwards we surely can add some guys from MHL who are not known right now across the world.
    Actually I can see the 1st line
    Kuznetsov -Namestnikov- Yakupov
    Marchenko- Arsamastsev.

    That's very true, but 91 had 4 excellent goalies: Bobkov, Shikin, Garipov, Sadikov.
    92 has Kostenko, Suchkov, Todykov, Eremin, Brashkin. This looks pretty much a downgrade so far. Markov is a 93 and he didnt look that solid at the U17s (still better than Suchkov)

    For sure I am almost certain the same approach will happen next year again I'm trying to be optimistic. Kuvaev's adjustment to a tough league like the WHL at his age is impressive, would have to think if he continues to play well he'll at least get an invite. Is it true Galchenyuk cannot play for Russia only Belarus or USA?

    Eremin I thought was pretty good....Suchkov and Todykov - forget about it...Brashkin for sure has potential, but like I wrote earlier - goalies worry me the most, well and defense - the usual...BTW wasn't there a Russian goalie playing juniors in US somewhere? If yes, what's the scoop on him? Oseledets is a 93 also, but has played pretty well for Red Army.

    It'll be very interesting what the Russian team will look like for next year. At first it appears that Russia will actually have somewhat of a choice, on the other hand - it doesn't seem to be quite as obvious as this year.

    Perhaps (not position specific):
    Kuznetsov - Namestnikov - Galiev
    Gusev - Kartaev - Shalunov
    Grigorenko - Prokhorkin - Kucherov - This line seems to good chemistry
    Apalkov - Khokhlachev - Yakupov

    Def.
    Marchenko - Arzamastsev
    Isangulov (good size) - Nesterov
    Ozhiganov (seems to have an excellent shot)
    Stepanov

    Goalies are a tough call at this point, unfortunately.

    Ivan Telegin , Stanislav Galiev ..... 2 names which didnt make it to the team this year, Telegin cause of injury, if im right, and Galiev who i think should have been on the team.

    The 2 of them and Kuznetsov will be the oldest players in next years team, the most mature and experienced guys in my opinion.

    Bragin will have no option other than to invite to the team some guys playing in north america as the likes of Telegin ,Galiev, Namestnikov, Khokhlachev are one of the best of their age group.

    Heyy !? ... No love for guys like Sergei Barbashev ? Alexander Gogolev ? Pavel Kulikov ? ...

    2012 it's far enough to see who's the best of the crop ! But if we have to make the team Now ... We are in trouble ..
