Last time I've seen so much speed going end to end is Malkin. Nichushkin doesn't have the hands or the same vision but Malkin didn't have as much power as this kid. Absolute beast. His one hand stick strength is amazing too, making accurate passes with one hand while holding off the defender at high speed.

Way more exciting than Yakupov when he takes off with the puck.

Kosov too, bad hands but he is no doubt the fastest guy on the Russian team- and that says a lot. Wouldn't surprise me if he is the fastest in the tournament. His conditioning has been world class, as he said, with Kulyomin Gonchar and Malkin as inspiration under Paul Maurice and NHL fitness coaches, he made a huge fitness leap this year.
