Orlov's on the older side and will be counted on pretty heavily. As said, no surprise there really. No one else on their blueline has plays as heavy a role on a KHL team (albeit one of the weaker ones) or has been drafted by an NHL team.
Still no word yet if Galiev has officially made the team but he was reportedly one of two reserve forwards during today's practice (the older of the two...the other being Namestnikov), which bodes well just for simply making it. Word should come later today. Kuznetsov centered the second line with Valuisky & Kalinin. If Galiev does make it the Caps will have the most prospects participating.
Orlov's playing great. Amazing defensive & offensive instincts. So talented, he's got "it".
Kuznetsov is showing the great talent he posesses.
Eakin's getting it all done. Talent, hard-word, physical two-way play. What's not to like about him?
