I wish I could have found a feed to tune in yesterday. I am very excited to find out how these guys do.
I have a few questions if I may.
Can ANYBODY give me a true idea of Barbashevs size--hes now listed as 6`3 on the Official site.
I have now heard sizes ranging from 5`8-155 to 6`3 -185...lol
I was bouyant to hear that he plays a physical game.
I have the U-17 final on DVD, so I have watched that a few times, but with the upmost respect, he was over shadowed on that day by Tolchinksiy and Nichushkin, so I am still trying to get a good view/opinion of him.
I have saw a few small clips of Jaskin and he looks a big, strapping lad, with a great shot. The knock on his draft year was that he wasnt much of a speedster ?
Who would you compare both Jaskin and Ivan too, and who was the centre between the Euros?
PS..Wildcatml28, just sent a PM to you for more info, if thats ok.
Barbashev was measured being 6'0.5" 185 lbs at the Wildcats' training camp this week. Jaskin is a big boy alright and loves the physical play too. They both avoid going around players and prefer to go right through them. Barbashev took faceoffs last night and is probably the fastest skater on the team. Jaskin looks like a man amongst boy out there , it really shows he already has 2 years pro under his belt. He's got 4goals and 2 assists in 3 games , preseason. PM me anytime
