Sochi 2014
 
Now that the roster for Vancouver has been announced, we can continue our tradition of predicting which players will be invited to the next Olympiad.
Some of the line-ups posted over four years ago were amazingly accurate...

cska78 12-29-2009 08:08 AM

Ovechkin, Malkin, Kovalchuk, Grebeshkov, Tyutin, Korneev, Semin all get reinvited.
I think we will see Kulemin (the one from Toronto), Tarasenko, Anisimov, Filatov ( a big may be )...Tkihnov?

and the forth line will be centered by S. Fedorov with Fetisov likely to come back again))))

cska78 12-29-2009 08:10 AM

Bryzgalov, Varlamov in goal

Washington Capitals 12-29-2009 10:18 AM

Maybe Orlov. :yo:

rananda 12-29-2009 11:32 AM

OV - Datsyuk - Semin
Kovalchuk - Malkin - Radulov
Filatov - Anisimov - Kulemin
Kabanov - Loktionov - Taresenko
Frolov

Markov - Nikulin
Tyutin - Grebeskov
Volchenkov - Goncharov
Voinov - Chudinov

Bryzgalov
Varlamov
Proskuryakov

MaxV 12-29-2009 11:48 AM

Well, assuming that NHL lets them go....


Ovechkin - Malkin - Semin
Kovalchuk - Anisimov - Filatov
Grachev - Loktionov - Kabanov
Radulov - Datsyuk - Kulemin

Markov - Volchenkov
Kulikov - Tyutin
Korneyev - Grebeshkov
Nikulin - Goncharov

Varlamov
Bryzgalov
Bobkov


- Hopefully Datsyuk and Markov don't decline too much in 4 years.

- I think Kulemin and Anisimov will both develop into good 2-way forwards.

- On the 3rd line, I prefer Grachev as a Center and Loktionov as a winger, but it looks like their respective teams are trying to develop them the other way.

- We have a bunch of other forward prospects that I was considering.

- We have several talented offensive-minded defensemen (Voynov, Alexandrov, Zubarev, Orlov, Zaitsev, Chudinov, etc.) that I was considering adding, as well as a couple of stay-at-home d-men (Emelin and Anikienko).

cska78 01-01-2010 10:36 AM

what have you all been smoking putting Burmistrov on the first line...his ceiling is a Kuryanov - type player, imho

MaxV 01-01-2010 10:46 AM

I disagree.

Burmistrov has a MUCH higher ceiling then Kuryanov. He's a fine 2-way prospect.

Currently we have only three centres in NHL and all of them look to be a lock for 2014. Then we have several solid but unspectacular 87-88 born centers in Churilov, Klyukin, Krysanov and Bodrov, couple of 80 born veterans in Tereschenko and Zinoviev, and promising youngsters with Loktionov and Burmistrov leading the pack. There is no definite option here. And don't see why Burmistrov can't be a one.

MaxV 01-01-2010 08:08 PM

There is also 22-year-old Vadim Berdnikov. Ivan Telegin and Andrei Kuchin are talented Centers also.

Zine 01-01-2010 09:17 PM

Grachev can also play center.

is that why someone put him on the first line? because he's a fine 2-way prospect?

This is a prediction for 2014.

What variable do you want us to use? Third eye?

Dynamo81 01-02-2010 04:52 AM

2010 team V Potential 2014 side

Who would win. I understand a lot can happen and new players can arise but your personal 2014 team V 2010 team for next month What is the better side?

RusskiyHockey 01-03-2010 11:15 PM

Ovechkin-Datsyuk-Semin
Kovalchuk-Malkin-Kulemin
Filatov-Zinoviev-Radulov
Frolov-Anisimov-Grachev

Markov-Nikulin
Tyutin-Korneev
Kulikov-Volchenkov
Grebeshkov-Vishnevskiy

Varlamov
Bryzgalov
Nabokov

Slitty 01-04-2010 03:48 PM

Defense is a little trickier to predict. Many of the current Olympians have a good chance of returning in Sochi. Markov, for example, is the oldest, but it's hard not to imagine him being back. Barring the unforseen, Grebeshkov and Tyutin should only improve and be back as well. While Volchenkov plays a style that wears the body and includes a high risk of injury, his chances are also good. Nikulin should at the very least still be in the mix, and Korneev will hopefully continue his development and warrant consideration as well.

Other than that, there aren't many presently established players that seem to be likely candidates. Of those currently on the cusp of the national team, only Kulyash and Kondratiev are young enough to have any prospects of being competative in 2014. So younger players will probably have to grow into the remaining spots on the roster not filled by returnees. Here is my defensive corps of those most likely to do so:

Kulikov-Anikienko
Vishnevskiy-Voynov
Goncharov-Zubarev
Alexandrov-Nikitin

Zine 01-04-2010 05:51 PM

Kirill Koltsov and Anton Babchuk are possibilities also.

I hope these players make improvements.

Solid lineup. I think all the players have good chances, but I'd rank Zubarev and Nikitin a little behind the others. I think the guys with the best chances are Kulikov (plays in the NHL at very young age, by 2014 he'll have experience), Goncharov (I guess he'll be playing in the NHL), Voinov (same) and Alexandrov (same). Anikienko is a tough defenseman with a big shot, things that don't hurt in international hockey, and this might give him a chance, though he doesn't really score as much as Kulyash or Dmitri Vorobiev 2-3 years ago.

I'm not sure koltsov will have a chance if Bykov remains

MaxV 01-14-2010 11:15 AM

I haven't watched any Vityaz games, but the 2 young players that are having a good statistical season are Center Vadim Berdnikov (22 years-old) and Defenseman Dmitri Megalinsky (24 years-old).

Considering their supporting cast, their numbers are impressive.

Future candidates?

Alessandro Seren Rosso 01-14-2010 11:25 AM

Megalinsky is a very good defensive defenseman. He was even rumored to join CSKA this summer. He is a good young player, but not sure he has Olympic games potential

Slitty 01-15-2010 04:14 AM

And finally, the goaltending should be handled by Bryzgalov, Varlamov, and whomever (it's currently neigh impossible to perdict) else.
