It look like he his having a tough time craking up the lineup of the top team and is playing very well in the 2nd division and even when he play with the big team is playing on the 3rd/4th line so could he change his mind and start playing in the chl? (Medicine Hat (WHL) hold his right)

what you think?

NO. No way wont happen. From what I just heard, he is on a goal scoring tear, with 5 goals in the last 2 games. I'm having a very hard time getting info from CSKA-2, but if he continues to play like this, he should get called up again.

Is it a strong league? Can you compare it?

Thanks

Tough call. I would think it's around the ECHL level. I think some High league teams are playing against some ECHL teams this winter, so maybe that's why I compaired them.

Kovalchuk. Russian Super League is the top league, and they don't care about developing players, they just try and win. So, most of the younger junior aged players play in either the High league, or the 1st league, which is a notch below.

No, I thought you meant the High league where CSKA-2 plays.

What is the CSKA team in the High League??

It's very bad for him if he's in the junior league. Perezhougin was a great High league player 2 years ago and had some hard times in the Super league (many though he would dominate in the RSL like Frolov did after his year in the RHL) and at the habs camp.

If he's really in the Junior league he should come in the CHL like guys like Shishkanov Yabukov and Artukhin did

CSK VVS it is Central Sport Club of Air Forces, Samara city

I think this club doesn't have any relation to CSKA Moscow

Bottomline, he should come over to Canada ASAP if he wants to develop into a NHLer.

There are many things to consider, language, physical play, rink size, culture.

I fear staying there could slow his development...and we need a scorer soon!
