2. He is better than any of the players you mention. By a margin.



You really think Canada's offence is better?

1. As of now he's ranked 2nd and to be out of top-10 is a bit too much of the slide. Although that's possible.

2. Now he arguably is. Obviously not by a margin but as of now he could make the biggest impact in men's hockey. But speed, size and these power moves are not going to make him a star. Let me take a wild guess here, you don't watch much of the junior hockey, do you?

3. Yes, I really think Canada's offense is better and, more importantly, stats reflect it. I mean kind of an odd thing but Kovalchuk and Semin are the only Russians playing on the 1st lines in their teams this season.
