I think AA will be in the AHL this season unless we get an injury from the centers.....

AA will be a great player in the AHL this season...and halfway through....the Rangers staff will be looking for any opportunity to call him up.
I'd agree with that. I expect that Anisimov starts the season in Hartford, hopefully plays better than he did last year, so by the time December or January rolls around, the first injury that happens, they can call him up and see if he's ready.

Zipay had a live chat today on his blog...didnt know about it but I just read the transcript...he was VERY impressed with Grachev and brought him up a few times...calling him a steal.

Here's one line:

Quote:
Grachev looks like a steal and Renney likes the improvement in Anisimov. Grachev bulled around somebody today, forgot who, and ripped a shot for a goal; again, this was a scrimmage with not much D. But even Dave Maloney was nodding his head in approval.

Where did Zipay say anything about skating issues? I skimmed through it again and couldnt find that.

Not Zipay...that was one of the knocks on Grachev...but, if you watch him going through the drills, he looks ridiculously smooth for someone of his size, and with "supposed" skating issues.

Just watched the video. he did look like a good skater with good hands...

The one thing that stood out..he is a damn hard worker and the kid is huge!. Match that with his skill and we could really be in for a treat. I still can't believe he fell to 75...

Hope he gets good ice time in the OHL next season...the kid is going to put up a ton of points.

i dont think the knock on uim was his top speed or his stride....moreso his acceleration which is understandable as hsi legs probably have to catch up to the size of his body after he grew....he will be fine

I think that, like AA, Grachev was a victim of the lack of a transfer agreement.

I wonder if some of those perceived skating issues might be because he's played on the bigger European ice surface. Doesn't that tend to make prospects seem slower, and maybe worse on acceleration? Anyway, it seems Evgeny's seem to do well in the NHL, so maybe we'll see a bear rip up the OHL.

Actually, it may be the other way around. Grachev doesn't have a contract in Russia, so the lack of a transfer agreement is moot. More likely he fell (if at all) because he's just not as well known.

He has a contract. Yaroslavl let him go, same as they did with Anisimov.

Didn't see that, but it just reinforces what I suspect--Russia's a big country and the less buzz about a player the more likely they are to be overlooked, especially if your current team isn't going to fight to keep you.

The hockey world is loaded with good old boys and once the word spreads that "its going to be hard to get russians out", "russians are now going to be staying home" most teams do not have the budget to spend scouting players where there maybe issues outside of their hockey skills. That is one reason why our last 3 top russian prospects are ours. We can pay the money to scout, we can pay the money to get them here. All 3 from what I have seen should have all been 1st round picks. That we got one much later in the 1st round, one in the 2nd and the last in the 3rd underscores the hockey mentality and explains why they are ours.

One of the rules of the KHL is that teams can only have one player under 20, so that could be another reason why Jaroslavl let him go.

He's at the camp wingmanpei but we haven't heard anything about him nor have they made a video of him like several others. It's not surprising--just drafted I expect he's further behind than a lot of the others. He'll surely be back with you guys next year and hopefully he continues to develop. He looks intriguing to me.

Well that makes a lot more sense! It's been reported in NA the way I wrote it. Thanks, Avy!

He'll definitely be back in junior this season, wasn't expecting him to make it. Just curious if he was holding his own in the drills or if he was doing anything that was making him noticeable, etc that kind of thing.

Personally, I'm interested in Joey Ryan.

He's a defensive minded kid who had a tough streak but who seemed to take some serious steps back last season.

Still he always had a rep as a hard worker a good listener and a kid who could be paired with an offensive defenseman and help hold down the fort.

Certainly sounds like the kind of kid we should be taking a flier on. I much prefer taking shots like this than multiple Lessards and Browns.
