If Bodrov pays off, I don't think we'll see the rewards until next year in training camp. Unless of course he looks like Ray Bourque in NHL '94 on the Phantoms.

you never know . . . this was a guy Homer was saying was for sure NHL ready. Obviously, that could easily be a load of crap, but he played in a tough league and at the team was very highly regarded by people who followed the league closely. We also don't know the truth behind what was going on with him over there. Maybe it comes out at some point, maybe it doesn't, but hopefully he is not too out of shape from not having played for a month or so.

Maybe some of the other people can let us know what he's been doing since his contract got torn up.

I am pretty sure it was one of Homer's quotes where he said that Bodrov was out of shape at the moment and hopes he will get back in shape by playing with the phantoms.

We actually have a lot of defensive depth for the future: Coburn, Carle, Parent (if he can stay healthy), Bartulis, Syvret (hopefully if he doesn't make it as an NHLer here he'll get a real shot elsewhere) , Marshall, Bourdon, Lehtivuori, and Bodrov (if they can prove themselves). It's a whole lot of ifs but it still makes me kind of excited.

It was. Bodrov is out of shape.

Bertilsson has a legitimate shot as well.

Bodrov is on an AHL-only contract for the rest of this season. This way a year isn't burned off his ELC. Same situation as JVR last year.

True, but the problem we've got now is too many small D prospects and not big guys.

Bertilsson, Marshall, Bourdon, Lehtivuori and now Bodrov are all not much more than 6' 190.

With Pronger, Carle, Timonen and Bartulis locked up for the next three years, Coburn and Parent left sign, and Syvret on board too, there isn't going to be room for more than one of them to make the NHL team in the next 2-3 years. Marshall seems the most likely candidate, if Parent never regains his health.

Check Bodrov's blood alcohol level before putting him on the ice.

True, but he's still only 6ish and 200ish. He is feisty and tough as nails, but that means diddly when it's huge guys like Malkin or Jordan Staal you're trying to check. I think Marshall is the best of the prospects, he's just never going to be a crease clearer because he lacks the size for it.

Fair enough, but I don't think he rates as a sure fire NHL prospect yet. Hopefully, I'd love to see him fill out and make a run at the big team. Would fill a big need.

Shouldn't matter. Determination + Adrenaline + lower center of gravity = he'll mess some fools up

The newest Adirondack Phantom stood by the back doors of the cold Civic Center basement, stripped down to tights and a T-shirt, sweating like he just ran wind sprints on a July afternoon.

He had just finished a torturous 15 minutes under the direction of strength trainer Ryan Podell after practice on Thursday. Podell had put him through devious-looking workout involving the kind of thick ropes you’d see on a sailing ship.

Welcome to America, Denis Bodrov.

Not much was typical about the Russian defenseman’s first week in Glens Falls. The Philadelphia Flyers’ second-round pick in 2006, Bodrov had been playing in the top Russian league until he split from his team in late November under cloudy circumstances. The Flyers signed him and assigned him to the Phantoms on Monday.

There’s two impediments to Bodrov’s assimilation into the Phantoms: his conditioning, or lack thereof, and the fact that he doesn’t speak a lick of English.

Podell will take care of the former. The later is sort of everyone’s problem.

Bodrov, for his part, doesn’t seem to worried, at least about the on-ice part.

“We talk the hockey language,” Bodrov said laughing, speaking through translator Slava Kouznetsov, the Flyers’ power-skating coach.

Kouznetsov has been a fixture at Bodrov’s side this week, but he left for Philadelphia on Thursday. So how will the Phantoms’ coaches communicate with Bodrov now?

“Sammy and I are good artists,” Phantoms coach Greg Gilbert said, referring to assistant coach Kjell Samuelsson.

He laughed, but he wasn’t kidding.
