He potentially could be far better in the NHL than Grabs or Kulemin and might even become an elite NHLer statistically like Datsyuk or Malkin..

An OV -- Backstrom -- Kuznetsov top line might soon become the NHL's most dangerous trio in time.
Well first Kuznetsov has to decide he wants to come to the nhl first, what if he pulls another Radulov
