    I'm going out on a limb to assume that they are better than the Wikner twins.

    There's some information about the two of them in this thread.

    Ruslan plays right wing and Roman's on the left side. And from what I gather, Ruslan is the more talented and productive of the two but not as complete of a player. He's also listed by CSB as being 5'11 while Roman is only 5'9", so I think it would be safe to say he's the superior of the two prospects. He'll probably go quite a bit higher.

    First of all, its the Bashkirovs. Ruslan (aka Rotislav - due to his cristening name or somesuch) plays right wing and is the top-end prospect that should go in the early first round, especially with the exposure he will get in the Q. He was the best player on Russia-89, and played even has experience playing for Russia-88. Roman plays left wing, is about 20 pounds lighter, and is perhaps a 2nd or 3rd rounder. One of them used to play center with his brother on his wing - but i can't recall which one. Their (and their dad's) priority seems to be making the NHL and keeping the boys together.
