5'11, 200+ is hardly "undersized," I think... there have been plenty of players with Tarasenko's skill set who are smaller than that, and have still had solid careers.

If anyone's expecting him to be Crosby, he's not going to be... but I don't see any reason to think that he can't be the first real power forward to come from Russia to the NHL. If he can have a Keith Tkachuk kind of career, I'll be jumping for joy.

I think someone among these guys:
Grigorenko, Yakupov, Tolchinsky, Iljin, Nichushkin +maybe Kuznetsov

i think he will be a 2nd borderline 3rd line center. I would take Anisimov over him, who's also never becoming a superstar.

From the few videos I've seen (albeit from 2009), Nichushkin reminds me of Malkin.....a less playmaking, more goalscoring version of him.

in 5-10 years there won't be many russians in the NHL, let alone superstars.

In 5-10 years, the only Russians in the NHL will be the superstars. Maybe you don't understand the current trends but the reason Russia has falling NHL players is because the majority of mid-level and complimentary talents are no longer coming to the NHL for various reasons.

The NHL Russian pool is likely to shrink and only the elite will remain.

i would take Burmistrov over Anisimov 24/7. There is only a view superstars in NHL , so no suprise that he will not going to be that kind of player but he has all tools to be regular 60-70 points player.thats for sure.

there is currently about 30 russians in NHL and i think this is the stable amount of russians in next 5-6 years and then its going to increase.

I'd say so. Looks like the Nhl hasn't been for him to adjust to. And there will be more russian players back in the nhl they will notice life is better in north America. And I say that cause of the lack of Heath care,hotels and what not.

Hmm, what makes you think that the amount will increase from 30? Is there a large group of talented Russians coming up or will players be leaving the KHL to come over to North America more?

Me too. Burmistrov has already shown me more skill and natural talent than Anisimov, and has shown 2-way ability as he was being used in PK situations and doing well before he started finding his offensive game.

He's already an established part of Atlanta's lineup at 18 whereas Anisimov is just finding a nitche at 22.

there is age groups from 95 and later which includes more kids with better education in terms of icehockey. no money were invested in to kids hockey in the 90-s and lesser amount of kids played icehockey because of various reasons.
