Makarov didn't "Krutov" the transition to the NHL. He seemed to acclimate quite well.

However, he was not an elite scorer in the NHL. Not even close. In terms of offensive production in his age group, he was on par with Neal Broten in 1989-90.

Assuming he doesn't come with 4 teammates, when viewed as an individual, I don't think he's on Bossy's offensive level, and he doesn't overcome that gap with other parts of his game.
