I don't know how you can compare Slepyshev to Zhafyarov when one of them is injured. Before the injury Slepyshev was definitely a better, more mature player.
That's why I wrote SOMEONE LIKE Slepyshev. It doesn't have to be Slepyshev and no one else, it was just an example.
I don't know how you can't compare them, they were both healthy one month ago. And I'm not sold on Slepyshev being a better player either. Zhafyarov definitely has more offensive flair, his stickhandling is superb and he is a better skater. Yes, Slepyshev has more all-rounded game, size, experience and leadership but in terms of on-ice skills Zhafyarov is better
