While I usually agree with davedave, I don't believe that any of our prospect are close to Samsonov's level yet. I think they might be in 2 years' time (Perezhogin if he puts it together and mabye Kost). He is a proven productive player which is not a given with our young and very streaky team. Secondary scoring was our downfall so he'd help adress it.
Thats where I think I disagree. Samsonov proved time and time again hes a very streaky player himself. Hes not a building block, hes an utility scorer like Zednik. He fades under pressure as well, another reason I dont like him.
