Yes. Zykov has an excellent shot and solid offensive skill overall. But what I like most about him is he's sort built like a tank and will use his size around the boards to win battles.

The intangibles also seem strong with him. The reports from B-C are he's fit in really well with that team, speaks decent english and has even taken french lessons.

I'm usually all for going BPA at all costs, but this year, we NEED to draft some size and power if we ever are going to shed this small/soft image of the big team. It's almost impossible to do it via trade or FA. You have to draft that aspect. Zykov would fit. With that said, if Petan or Compher is available in the 2nd, yeah, you take that type of player. But there needs to be a priority on getting size and power game with some of these picks.
