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.
ehm, skating is one of Slepyshev's strenghts, not easy to be a better skater.
But agree on Zhafyarov looking mature beyond his years to go along with his skills.
Anyway, barring injuries and related troubles (conditioning), both should be locks for the WJC team imo.
More importantly now, does anyone know what injury occurred to Buchnevich and its supposed extent?
