Bourret could turn into a Morrow or a Verbeek if we're lucky. Cherepanov doesn't apparently have the skating of Bure though he is supposed to be quite the finisher. As lazy as some of the critics have said he is--he doesn't quite fit the Brendl mode. Doesn't look like he's going to eat himself out of the league. He's got something to prove besides--now. Anyway hitting for 18 goals in the best league in his country at 18 years old is quite remarkable. Maybe a Hull or a Robitaille type--supposed to have fantastic hands--to me a legit 1st line prospect. Anisimov and Bourret are possibilities but Alexei goes to the top of our list of forwards--though I'd rate him (for now) behind Staal and Montoya.
