    well i think he played in most of their games but was usually on the 3rd and 4th lines...he was a rookie and behind some NHLers...he does very well against players his own age but he (at least last year) seems to be still a "boy" and hasn't matured completely yet

    Wow. I'm surprised. He was a top rated prospect not that long ago. Why do you rate him a bust? What's happened to him?

    He's been mediocre in the AHL and has now signed a non-lockout deal in Finland.

    I think Richmond could be a top 4 d-man.

    He isn't a bust, he has all the talent to be an NHL starter right now just his consistancy has been blown up due to his weak team. If he is off a little he gets lit up. Ahonen going to Finland may give him some confidence being a starter on something other then Albany.

    Ryznar is more likely to be a 4th liner then Tallackson, Tallackson's skill set is just to high, he needs to put it all together.

    Kadeikin is a bust.

    Was Barulin the goalie that stood on his head in the '03 ReMax Challenge for Russia?

    Tallackson could end up one of those players who is a better pro than amateur. I think the Devils' coaching staff will end up taking care of his inconsistency issues. Big, a great skater, defensively responsible, and a tremendous shot add up to some nice potential.

    He's not a bust yet. In fact, he had a great WJC. If Nashville can ever get him over here, he could still be Nashville's 3rd or 4th line C.

    Lev, I agree with that assessment. He didn't receive a lot of ice-time. But they did sometimes use him on the penalty kill and the report said his work on the third line was good. We'll see how he progresses next season.

    Both of them could be solid number one goalies in the NHL one day.

    If Tallackson goes to see the Wizard and asks for a heart and some courage he could be a great player. Has all the tools non of the intangables.
     
  15. Wow maybe everyone's right, Matt Jones must really be a good athlete, if he can play football as well as hockey. I don't know if the Jacksonville Jaguars will be happy with him playing hockey though. Yeah, that was very corny I know.

    I know only of Matt Jones and of David Leneveu. Jones has been a steady college defenseman, not putting up a lot of points, but getting the job done. He projects to the third pairing one day. As for Leneveu, I can't say enough good things about him. He has backstopped two of the worst teams in the AHL over the last two years, but has still put up reasonable statistics. I see no reason he won't be an All-Star goalie in the future.
