Starshinov is a player who I actually soured on somewhat after drafting him last time - especially after seeing how much Firsov outscored him internationally, where assists are actually recorded. His playmaking is terrible for a center (I think it's probably worse than Bowie or Barry, neither of whom should be the primary playmaker on an ATD line). He's definitely a great guy in front of the net, but he needs linemates who can get him the puck when he's in front of the net.
Which is why he'd be quite good with Howe...
