You beat me to Shalimov by two minutes.



Of the nine Soviet forwards drafted in MLD11 only Kamensky and Vikulov would I consider clearly better than him (Zhluktov at the same level).

He is the one Soviet player available for this draft that could arguably play on a main ATD team, without any real question marks due to the fact that he excelled during the post Summit Series era, when there was no doubt as to the worldclass level of play of the Russians.

He only scored 3 goals against Canada in international competition in a mere 9 games against Canada. But he scored some key goals among the 12 he notched in 35 international contests against Czechoslovakia. His tourney-leading perfomances in the 1975 and 1982 World Championships bookend a solid career in the Soviet league.
