(By Groshev I assume you mean Guryshev.) Guryshev was a 3-time all-star, Shuvalov was a 5-time all-star. The Double-A pick looks stellar in comparison to the AAA pick.

Shuvalov is cited as doing the little things well. I don't want to make assumptions about a player's all-around game unless there's evidence for it. It's a question mark.

I don't treat this as a fantasy game, as you know. We are amateur hockey historians, displaced in a galaxy far from the History board home we came from, trying to make our way back home. (Just add Cylons and we've got the hockey odyssey version of BSG)
