How is he looking now that he has played a decent amount of games in Worcester? Does he have a realistic chance to make it to the NHL in a top-6 role?
I like Tarasov a lot. Realistically I think he has a good change in making the NHL. Top-6 I'm not quite so sure yet, but he is going in that direction. He gets a nice jump on the play and has a great wrist/snap shot and isn't afraid to shoot. A matter of fact we scream at a lot of our players to shoot the damn puck instead of passing, but I can't recall too many instances of that being directwed towards him. He'll be on SJ's radar during the pre-season for sure.
