buchnevich has a tremendous shot. his shooting is perhaps his best asset. hes is a pure sniper with the ability to beat nhl netminders right now.

he has all the shots. snap, wrist and very heavy slapper. he shows great timing and the ability to move his body in opposite direction and one time with power. he can pick corners and shows high ability to shoot off stride. his deek moves are natural and intuitive and his ability to shoot it at full speed is top notch.

he can get pucks on net with speed and accuracy. something this organization is sorely lacking since we moved thomas.
I know that you love your Russians. Would you feel the same way if his name was Todd Smith from Arizona? I'm actually pretty hopeful about him, but how many times could you have seen him play to make that statement?

Edit: I'm not trying to be overly critical of you personally. We've all had our ups, and downs (My future first line center Frolik). I just remember you banging the Lisin/Koko drums for a long while.
