Blinded by your crush on Sergei? Were you the one following Sergei the other day after game 7?

If he doesn't he'll still be productive, but I like to look at what a guy may develop into.
I think we'll see the true potential of SK next year as we're seeing little by little in the POs.

The reason im saying this is because i don't think Koivu and Higgins were the best linemates for him. He will explode when playing with his bro IMO.
The Sedin twins had 29 and 34pts in their rookie seasons, both playing almost full seasons.
The Kost broz are ahead of them if we look at Pts/GP ratio.

Not saying they won't have to work on some things, everybody has to work on stuff to constantly become better. Even AO and Crosby make mistakes and learn stuff.
But i just don't think we've SK enough to have a solid evaluation of him.
We switched him from line to line a lot just like his bro in the beginning of the season, until we kept him on with Koivu.
But as of next year, im sure the Broz will play together and we'll be able to evaluate them better.

I do understand what you're talking about though.

Granted most weight references are false advertising. However when drafted in the import draft by London:

SIARHEI KOSTITSYN
LW
6' 0"
190 lbs
March 20, 1987
Novopolotsk, Belarus

That was the summer of 2005. I don't think it is a stretch that he is close to 200 lbs. He had a bit of extra weight his last year of Jr in 2007

If anything he needs to work on his skating a bit. His physical size is not so much a problem as inexperience and the need to be stronger on his skates. Regardless of that he gets involved in the hitting (9th on the team in hits) and seems to enjoy it.

In jr he took penalties when he got hot-headed or just too cranked up. I still think most of his penalties fall into that category

He said in an Interview with CKAC about a month back he weighs about 196lbs.

Don't get me wrong, I have a full man-crush on Sergei like I haven't had since Saku was a rookie. I just feel we've only seen the tip of the iceberg with Sergei so far.
Of all the posts, this summerizes it perfectly

unafraid to say the truth, that sergei HAS looked LESS than mediocre out there FOR the most part and STILL has DECENt stats, that just proves what type of player is going to be my god..

Also, lets not forget bruins were playing 12 feet over their heads in the middle part of that series.. NOBODY on the habs looked any good including sergei

Latendresse was 22 in junior, but begin is 22 here, and so he took 84, even when begin is gone i think Lats will stay with 84, considering nobody in the entire history of the NHL ever wore 84 before HE did

Notice how you capitalize 'bar'. Like how some people would capitalize 'church'. Now I'm thinking about the Simpson's movie, where the folks in one run in panic to the other.

There is NO WAY this kid is 200lbs...or even close to it. Player vital stats are waaaaaay overblown. I've been in the weightlifting game for about 25 years. These players are lean...and a lean 200lb'er is freakin' huge....at so-called 6'. Which is probably totally inaccurate too.

I gotta say that I really like Sergei's game. He's probably going to wind up being a more complete player than his brother. Andrei seems to be a pure goal scorer.

Did you listen to the Interview he gave to Ron Fournier on CKAC ?!

He clearly stated that he was 196lbs !!

Why in the hell would he lied ?!

I think mcphee has him pegged. Similar to Koivu, but needs to start using his speed on the outside, low, driving to the net. Saku should teach him how to protect the puck (keep it outside, away from the defender) all-the-while using his other hand to "lean" against the defender while keeping low and moving his feet towards the net.

Koivu was awesome at this when he had that extra step. Low center of gravity, leverage, speed, drive(to the net) and protecting the puck. If he keeps his feet moving, he either gets to the net, or draws a penalty...in most cases, that is.

Having said that, this is something Andrei is built for too. They should show those 2 old clips of Koivu pre his first major leg injury. He was almost unstoppable back then. To think how great he would had become had he not lost that step (which he clearly did).

Plekanec had 35 because Bonk had 14.
