I think Anisimov is capable of more than what he is showing right now, and even more on the big ice with good linemates.

I know this is pretty far fetched, but if Nichushkin is where Kuznetsov is right now in a couple of years, or maybe even better- wouldn't we want him on the team? He has the talent. Watching him at the U17, he already has NHL speed and size is very good. He would be like Malkin at 2006 Olympics...

I don't really see Shipachyov as an Olympic Calibre of player. He is a very efficient scorer, but I don't think he would make that next elite level.

Kulemin is another guy who is on the fence. He can be a real solid workhorse, but this season he's ineffective.
