i think it's more about injuries for marchenko. unlike many other, i don't consider the KHL or being russian a problem.
good players still get want to play in the NHL due to money and credibility.

if marchenko can stay healthy and he's as talented as some scouts said a while back, then he's an exciting prospect.

bodin (without r) is a project, because he never played against the best in his age group. he's coming out of nowhere. the best part of it is that hakan helped him to get a try-out with a better program.
that reminds me of datsyuk back then who was asked by hakan if he needs something and he asked for some new skates.
