UNBELIEVABLE!

Quite an intersting thing the boy goes on to progress since he shined in Switzerland at the ournament at 12 years of age with 1990 KAZAN team. Scoring 18 GOALS during the tournament.

Believe big problem not to have NHL-IIHF-Russia agreement NOW! Hopefully by December Russia signs it the way it can be good for both sides IIHF and NHL.

MOREOVER with NOVOKUZNETSK Siberian club new phenomenon is almost developed Kitsyn Maxim late 1991 born boy! He practiced 2006 pre-season with SENIORS and he is so big like a MAN almost 6.3 in height! 2010 NHL Draft ELIGIBLE boy but must make his SUPERLEAGUE debut season 07/08 for sure!

Watched him closely at 1991 born players tournament Moscow region Governor's Cup this 2006 August and he looked FANTASTIC! BIG, quick and skater with scoring touch. Shots are strong with quick release. Not bad 7 goals and 3 assists TOTAL 10 points!


I doubt that Petrov is a phenomenon. The same goes to Kitsyn. Follow "the next ovechkin" thread.

Voynov (also 1990 born) plays in every game if i'm not wrong for Traktor in RSL. Phenomenon?
