Could Pechkurskiy or Zhelobynuk crack the third netminder spot ?

How about Berdyukov on the defence ?

All of these offensive defenceman Kulikov, Orlov and Zubarev for example are good that way .

Some of the people here whom know far more about them could you help me out. Can they also develop a strong defensive component to their game ?

Or are they already strong defensively ?

Can we see perhaps not in 2014 but by 2018 a new defensive corps that can compete with the best of them and take the pressure off the offence ?

Could one of the u17 like Khokhlachev or other kid like Avtsin be a surprise call up if they keep developing ?

I'm not comparing them certainly Avtsin to Ovechkin who made the 2006 team but in age terms if they do keep going as they are.

Cheers.
