I'm higher on Kundratek than Pashnin. Tomas might have been Hartford's best and most consistent defenseman over the course of the season, even more so than Valentenko. Not a bad performance for a 21-year old. Now, is he a special player? Probably not. He could be a nice bottom pairing guy in a couple of years though.

Pashnin, I'm just not sold on. There's a difference between looking good in training and development camps and performing well in actual competitive games. His performance in the KHL was pretty "meh" from all reports, so I don't know why so many people are predicting that he steps in to make a difference in a vastly superior league in the next year or so.
