Thanks!

Over a full season, Fetisov comes to mind off the top of my head... I don't recall it being done since Soviet times. Afterall, a point per game in the RSL would usually make you one of the elite forwards in the league, if not the scoring champion. Koltsov is truly comming into his own and making a case for himself as the best defenseman in the RSL. Yet to be fair, while having the best PPG, he is only tied for 2nd in scoring amongst defensemen. In terms of his NHL outlook, due to the unavoidable adjustment period he would most likely start off as a bottom pairing powerplay specialist. Establishing himself in the top 4 would probably be achieved sometime within his first season. I am a poor judge of eventual upside, but I think superb #2 - #3 primarily offensive guy is Koltsov' possible final destination.
