It's like Khokhlachev, who came from great CHL seasons to having 1 point in 20 KHL games. great
Sergeev is a very different case, there is a bit of defense crisis for the Russian jr teams. But I wouldn't call him anything outstanding like Orlov or even Arzamastsev from before. More like- he's not going to screw up and thats ok.
Unless Varnakov has something against CHLers, he will probably give Zlobin at least a long look.
Zlobin is a fine player and is older than Slepyshev.
