I think he could have helped Russia at the WJC had they given him more ice time last year.
What I really like about Tarasenko from the limited games that I have watched is that he is not a selfish player and has very good play making skills and uses his teammates well.
I'm looking forward to seeing him in the NHL next year. It looks like Nikita Nikitan is doing well for the Blues so far, so Tarasenko would have someone on the team who has already gone through the adjustment of learning the language and adjusting to the culture in the US.
I know you probably mean the WC; otherwise, that statement is pretty funny, ha.
