I am not saying Belov sucks, or won't make the team, I am just saying people penciling him into the line up is very premature. The KHL is a differnt league, bigger ice ect. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up back in the KHL after a breif try out.
Belov will assuredly be in the top 6 barring something unforseen happening like him completely looking lost in preseason or Klefbom dominating the preseason games.
He didn't come over here to play in the AHL and MacT didn't sign him to a $1.5 mil contract to play in the AHL. He'll be on the opening night roster.
It's looking very likely that Schultz's, Smid, Petry, Ference and Belov will be the 6.
