I take it that Naumenkov had been made available by the KHL for the WJC, only to be injured.

Was he an offensive-powerplay quarterback like Gonchar was a few years ago?
I wouldn't put Naumenkov in the Gonchar league just yet, but yes he was quaterbacking the powerplay.

Russian roster is solid. The offence is surprisingly not the dominant bright spot on the roster. As I said Yakupov is the only star in the making for sure. The rest of the offence is really deep and solid. Russia has a shot at the gold. But so have the other usual suspects.
