Bo if you going to compare the two, try looking at it more clearly. Korneev played for the worst team in teh RSL last year, that's why it was easier for him to get ice time, as the talent level wasn't there.

Now Kastsistsyn has Zherdev, and a few others on CSKA that it's not as easy to get ice time. Kastsistyn has played in 6 of the 21 games, not great, but why not wait till the season is over to see how he does.
