Yeah, like Pisani and Skille..
Makarov had an outstanding training camp. If memory serves me right, he led the scrimmages in scoring (3G, 6Pts) and was solid in the one pre-season game I remember seeing. He was also the best player on the ice at the Toronto rookie tournament a month earlier.
Makarov did more than enough in training camp to warrant a couple game look, but he never got it. The fact that he didn't speak much english very likely held him back.
