The Rangers arenít promising Cherepanov will
soon become another Ovechkin, Kovalchuk or Malkin,
but, according to assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld, ďAlex is
definitely on track to be a high skill-level NHL player; heís
a powerful skater with a quick release.Ē

Management believes Cherepanov will be strong
enough physically and mentally to compete for an NHL
spot the moment he comes over. The issue is whether
the Blueshirts will be able to overcome the political issues
and get the flamboyant winger here next season
