- He has by far the highest offensive upside.
- He is the most skilled prospect in terms of: stickhandling, skating and pretty much shot wise as well.
- Skill is not his number one asset. It's his intensity and his ability to win battles. People who have watched him play consistantly over his career know this.
- At some point he has proven he can dominate almost every league he has played in.
He is only 21, and actually played quite well for what he was given here in ottawa, just a little extra time to get used to the NHL, a little more confidence and he is a major threat.
Him going back to Russia is not a big deal, he can develop there while making more money to provide for his family whats wrong with that tabernak.... (hockey players have short careers... you've got to make as much as you can).
I dont think fans realize how much of an asset this guy is i have ABSOLUTE confidence this guy will be a good player for the sens everyone just needs to relax and be as patient as possible. Hes the real deal.
