    Will anyone be drafted from the Golden Russian team?

    I'm thinking the following players have a chance:

    -Burdasov
    -Kalinin
    -Panarin

    It would be sad not to see any of these guys in the NHL someday...

    In my opinion, Burdasov played a rather poor tournament all around.

    I could see the other two perhaps, but i wasn't really paying much attention to them. I'm going to say that none of them make it as first rounders.

    Panarin? Guy is really small and not so great as a player.


    Kalinin and Burdasov were not impact players, yeah Kalinin scored a very important goal, but nothing more.

    Sobchenko, Shikin and Urychev have a chance. But Russia was mostly carried by drafted players: Tarasenko, Kuznetsov, Kitsyn and Orlov.

    The are alot of under the rader guys on this team. Golubov, Sergeev. Panarin is very highly talked about in Russia. And Shikin should def get a look. I hope the Caps draft all of them lol!

    The whole team would be drafted if they were North American, but considering the 'Russian factor':

    Panarin - No. Talented but small and weak.
    Kalinin - No. His motor never stops but has limited offensive potential imo. Fantastic utility player at this level though.
    Burdasov - Yes. Very good skills with an NHL build....must put it together though. Good project player to draft in later rounds.

    imo others worth consideration - Shikin, Zaitsev, Berezin, Urychev, Sobchenko, Golubev, maybe Dvurechensky.

    More or less I agree. Panarin is a good player, but as you said, he has no NHL body. Kalinin doesn't have enough offensive potential, he's just a member of the Kazionovs/Shafigullins of this world. Burdasov - dunno why he wasn't drafted, he's a big skilled player - not next Ovechkin, but a good player.
    Shikin imho is not an NHL caliber goalie, Zaitsev is a bit too up and down, but still I don't get why he wasnt drafted. Berezin and Urychev...hmm, average (from NHL POV). Sobchenko is a great junior player, I'd draft him. Golubev is good, but I don't see him drafted (even though he's very good one on one and is a neat playmaker), Dvurechensky .... I'd draft him in a hartbeat, he could be a good third liner in the NHL if you don't expect too much Canadian antics, he's got a good frame and good technique as well, watch the 5th goal tonight.

    And Dvurechensky also played well in the Super Series tournament earlier (along with the drafted Kitsyn), where Nikita got two goals and four assists.

    1 or maybe 2 as highest most the others ->KHL

    I'm sure the Russian factor will prevent many of them beeing drafted

    Burdasov's toughness shouldn't be challenged, he got hit hard a few times and didn't miss a shift.

    Orlov was impressive.

    The Caps have a couple players on that team already drafted(Kuznetsov, Orlov)... I'm guessing other teams might have a few as well.

    Sorry, Burdasov was awful... Give away after give away. Has the one toe drag move, worked once the whole tournament, tried it about twenty times. Kind of player that likes to dangle. Was one of the few players to be a minus for the Russians, and like Pierre said: the guy just can't finish!

    Agreed with Burdasov, but Panarin has and showed a very good skill set and grit for his size.
    Kalinin was a very important player because he wins battles, and compliments the good players. Didn't like him on the roster coming in, but now I see why Bragin brought him. One word with him - Grit. He was a silent warrior for the Russians. Check out the Kitsyn goal again from yesterday. That was a great example of an amazing behind the scenes play that Kalinin made to forward the puck to Kuznetsov by winning a battle between two Canadian guys. It's a lot of little plays like these....

    The transfer agreement fiasco will stop all but the most talented Russians from being drafted high for as long as it takes to get an agreement done. No NHL team is going to waste a high pick on a guy who may not ever play here (beyond the normal risks associated with drafting)

    Good for you?

    I really liked Burdasov, Dvurechensky and Sobchenko.

    Good for Russian hockey. Russia needs it's "sergei shirokovs" and "evgeny dadonovs" to play in Russia. They are wasting their talent in the AHL.

    Harsh, but I agree, Burdasov played great.

    Burdasov is an underachiever, but I would draft him. A late-round pick on a guy like this a good low-risk/high reward move imo.

    Dvurechensky, Zaitsev and Sobchenko should all get drafted. All 3 have good upside.

    I had high hopes for Berdyukov, but he turned out to be one of the bigger disappointments.

    Urychev, Berezin and Sergeyev are interesting stay-at-home D-men that are worth considering.
