He can make very good outlet passes. I like his size and how collected he is on the ice - a very cool customer in his own zone. I think this prospect has a lot of promise.

RE Goalies: Barulin is doing better now than earlier this season, but as the Sweden Games have shown, he needs at least another year in Russia. If this is his last year to be signed, then a year in the AHL could help, but he is not NHL ready yet.
Thank you very much for the updates, sir.
