There's no question the skill is there. His skating is top notch, and he has very good accelleration. I think the goals will come, but from what I understand he doesn't speak much English at all. I'll be in Hamilton next week for a 3 game trip so I'll be watching him closely.
The language barrier could be a big thing holding him back. It would hinder his comprehension of the plays, warnings or other things hollered from teammates on the ice, and his overall confidence.
I heard somewhere that he had an english tutor? Is this true or am I mistaking him with another Canadien's prospect?

All the Best to Sasha!
