I'm not expecting him to ever become Pavel Datsyuk, but he's going to need to learn how to not be a liability on the ice defensively.
Shame the Rangers couldn't move up to nab Vasilevski. I know they were hoping to get him.
Yes, he missed his backcheck on that play. But, by the same token, there's a reason that the coaches had him out on 2 of the last 3 shifts of the one-goal bronze medal game.
He's not a perfect prospect, but I'm certainly excited by his overall package.
