Neither is ready to make a step to adult hockey as of WJC, doubt they can make a step from Juniors to the Olympic NT in two years, basically in a season and a 1/2.
I think many of us are hoping they have a rapid jump but realistically Russia will be lucky if even one of them make the squad. Good to see Malkin doing well this season and Kovalchuk finding form. Not going to mention Datsyuk as he is always just perfect, my favorite player. Really hope he does not drop off too much come 2014.
