Bragin was getting it right to the last man but i expect Varnakov to have 1-2 forwards/defencemen with ?
Prokhorkin found himself in same situation Kabanov was last year. Bragin said in an interview that he doesnt know what Kabanov is up to-moving to Sweden (rumors), to me it sounded more like an excuse, he just didnt want him in the team. Prokhorkin is not playing, same as Kabanov he would be an improvement over 1-2 4th line guys but the difference is minimal, a hot, top shape Prokhorkin would be a diff story but hes nowhere close.
Overall i see a lot of depth in this team, defence looks unreal.
I think Prokhorkin knew that by going to AHL he was pretty much not going to make the WJC (few AHLers ever end up going). This is an example of a stupid move to NA, add it to the list. He could've waited it out like Gusev- play some VHL then loaned to a weaker KHL team and get experience. But Not good enough for him- impatient youth...
