It's easy to get excited about Russian prospects, there's the allure of the unknown with them and your imagination/wishful thinking fills in the blanks. Look at me, I'm still hoping that AKost turns into a Marian Hossa under Martin. Hope springs eternal.

I'm not sure how comparable they are, but at least a little
All Ill be saying here is that he wont have the time to skate that free in the neutral zone at the NHL level.. will probably have to work on the basics in the AHL..
