good point. especially with the good start khokhlachev had in NA.
But Shalunov is scoring on a very good rate since the beginning of this year, in any team he played. If he keeps it up through the season and plays the U-18 WCH up to the expectations... he'll be a very intriguing prospect, particularly if we take his size into account. We all know how fans and scouts overseas love size, as a pure matter.
(btw, I've seen him play only once... so this is a wild guess talentwise.)
