You know what, CSS has him as a righty also. I'll change him to righty.

It's kinda confusing isn't it. The main thing I guess is that he continues to improve and establish himself as a legitimate top 6 prospect.

Go Push.

Lethbridge is off to an 0-3 start but will improve and be a contender, Red Deer and Medicine Hat are always strong, Swift has taken a step back and the Hitmen might be the early favourite in my eyes.

Should be fun to watch though...
We're not counting on him to be an enforcer by any means, but we're glad he's at least sticking up for himself instead of being another soft Euro that MANY Kings fans have complained about having for a while.

Remember, we have endured the past few seasons with a combination of Modry, Stumpel, Palffy, Straka, etc. Granted, Palffy and Straka are very skilled, but they were also very unphysical. There were even a couple threads made once Stumpel made a body check, because physical play from our Euros are alien to us

That makes it 2 goals, 1 assist and 5 pims in 2 games for Push.

I listened to the game last night and one of the radio broadcasters mentioned that he spoke to one of the Kings scouts about Pushkarev. He said they were obviously happy he was able to play in the WHL, and commented on how good a player Pushkarev is.

So obviously the Kings will keep a close eye on him, and I don't know how far the Hitmen will go but I guess theres a chance he could play with the Monarchs if their season ends early.

During the draft in 2003 the Wings were trying really hard to move up and grab him, Red Wing scouts were compaing him to Igor Grigorenko at the time.

He's a keeper that's for sure.

They offered their 2004 first rounder for him. Less of a playmaker than Grigs though.


Phoenix offered their remaining 03' draft.

But would you say more gritty and physical? Which one do you think have the best shot at having a good nhl career?

Pushkarev to the first question.

As of right now? I'd say Pushkarev. From all reports, Grigs has not been the same since the "accident".

Maybe it will come back, but at this point and time I would take Push.

Nagy would be a good comparison to Push right now.

Pushkarev got an assist on the Tomanek goal. Those two have really been clicking too.

Another assist by Push on the Ladd goal. Beauty play from behind the net from what I heard.

Didn't play soft out there, he didn't seem to be intimidated by the physical game. On the fight he was punched first by Versteeg (not sure why he didn't get the instigator or roughing call). Did okay in the fight, obviously that's not his strong suit.

But overall a great showing. Has the typical european skill level but looks to be determined to fight through the hard checking in the WHL. It looks like he'll be an impact player for the Hitmen, I'd say he's top 3 in terms of skill but not nearly as big or as strong physically as Ladd or Getzlaf (both of whom looked very good.) Getzlaf is the best prospect I've seen on the Hitmen since Brad Stuart (definitely take him over Beech or Brendl in a heartbeat), Anaheim has a real bluechipper there.
this sounds awesome !.. sounds exactly like how sjostrom learned how to play his second year. i can't wait to see calgary come to pg then if he's playing like sjostrom did his second year, fun to watch
