A lot of the hype came from Holmgren's own comments which, at the time, seemed to come completely out of left field. Nobody was really paying attention to Bodrov until he started making comments about Bodrov possibly being ready to jump to the NHL level in the near future.

At the time all this started Bodrov was performing well with Tolyatti Lada. Then of course there were locker room issues leading to his trade. Now he is way down on Mytishchi Atlant's depth chart. Granted they're better than Lada, but there's some other issues with Bodrov's game.

Who knows where this could all end...with the Flyers' deep pool of defensive prospects (hell we couldn't even fit them all before the Ratchuk trade) it's looking more and more less likely that we continue to pursue Bodrov so hard, if we haven't stopped already that is.

Anyway, 2009 depth analysis (used to be called the System Audit):

HF depth chart also updated.
