well, Varnakov coming from a VHL background doesn't know the product all that well, so he wants to see all the premiere candidates in battle environment, I can understand that.

Two early concerns: Varnakov seems to prefer guys with KHL/AHL experience even if it's minimal and they have 7-8 KHL/VHL games with a few shifts per, what kind of game shape will they be?

He really likes big d-man, both select teams (Subway series and 4-nation) are loaded with humongous d-men. To me it seems Sweden is the team to beat and last year's Bragin-team looked very slow vs. swedes.

Other than that, I think the strongest players are being called up and I see very little questionable names if any.
