To be honest though, the guy has to buff up... A LOT before he can safely play in the NHL. He has a tendency of cutting across the slot a lot... and I would hate for him to run into a player like... Pronger or something.
Besides that hes got a world full of skills, but not like... open ice dekeing skills. Hands down one of the smartest players seen with the puck for a long time. His decisions on the ice with the puck are always smart and are always cycling moving, and making scoring chances. For him to come next year would be a dream come true for a lot of us.
I'll drink to Cherepanov coming over
Buffness will not save him from open ice hits. I think we all know of a pretty huge player whose 250+ frame did jack for him..
If you're gonna get hit it doesn't matter whether you're 260 or 170 lbs. It's all dependent on the person.
