Korneev is only 19, but he must add size and strength. At 176 lbs is just too small and his lack of strength will be exposed down low and in front of the net. Will need to be paired with a big stay at hom defensemen. (Korpikari, Linhart, Beauchemin perhaps) But being only 19, he should be able to grow some and a few years of weight training should help as well.

I've heard that Savard was looking to bring Korneev over after this season, if he continues to play well. I do think we have a possible gem, but we'll know more in a few years.

Oskari Korpikari plays in the SM Liiga (Finnish Elite League) for Karpat.

Also, Mark Flood got an assist on the game winning goal in ot tonight, and has 2 pts in 2 games. Was on the ice for 3 of the Petes 4 goals, and 2 of the 3 goals against.
