I also believe during the SSS he mentioned how he loves North American ice. "Here everything is faster. Pro players play smart, they don't run around too much. Besides, the rinks are smaller and that also speeds the game up. I like small rinks, though. I always play well on them." I think is what he said
Yes, I read that article too. Read another which said he also only thinking about playing in Russia for now. We likely will have to wait for the Combine to get a somewhat definitive answer unless something comes out of the U20's. Anton Slepyshev who I had as second rounder last year didn't show up for the Combine and consequently didn't get drafted.

31 to 40 is now up at thehockeywriters.com
