HC Krylya Sovetov select:

Joe Cirella D: Cirella will bring physical play to our blue line and a lot of experience with 866 games played ( including playoff ).

He had a strong burst of speed off his first couple of strides, and caught the opposition by surprise by carrying the puck out of the New Jersey zone to relieve the pressure.

Most of his offense came from point shots from the blue line, though once in a while he would surprise everyone by jumping into the slot for a one timer.Joe Cirella was a solid NHL depth defenseman for many years

David Krejci C:Krejci will bring good two-way play and playmaking abilities to our second line.He had 3 decent offensive seasons and led the playoff in both points and goals during the Boston Bruins run last year averaging over 20 minutes of ice-time.In 08-09 , he led the league in plus and minuses with a great +37.
