I know you probably mean the WC; otherwise, that statement is pretty funny, ha.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest he'll never be that good.

No offense to Tarasenko.

I wouldn't say that's going out on a limb, and it's not an offense to Tarasenko. Fedorov will be in the Hall of Fame.

I was trying to be a little understated.

He'll have Grachev too.

Another 2 assists in the 14th game of the season. He now has 8 goals and 9 assists. He needs two more points to match his point total of last year, which he accumulated in 42 games.

Okay. If we're restricting comparisons to "absolute best-case scenario Soviet legends", Krutov would seem to be a more apt parallel for Tarasenko.

They're both fast, skilled, gritty, competitive wingers built like tanks.

I'd go with Oshie on steroids, or a rich man's Oshie, i.e. very similar styles of game, except Tarasenko is bigger, faster, and more talented.

Hes leading the KHL in scoring (both points and goals) as well, although his team also has played the most games in the league. Lehtera is #2 also.

Tarasenko's skill set reminds me more of David Perron than TJ Oshie, although Tarasenko is more of a shooter than both of them. Perron plays a more aggressive game in the offensive zone than Oshie, and thats how Tarasenko likes to play. Also, at least in the WJC, Tarasenko was a bit of a cherry picker in the defensive zone, and Perron has a tendency to be the first one out of the zone as well.

Tarasenko and Lehtera are 2nd and 3rd in KHL scoring at the moment. Tarasenko's tied for the lead in goals though.

As posted on another forum by Siberian Tiger (our Russian friend! )
Quote:
Vladimir Tarasenko has been named the KHL’s Forward of the Week. He played 4 games and had 5 goals and 5 assists. Both were league highs for the week. He had at least 2 points in each game. Two of his goals were game winning goals. He was also +6 for the week.

For the season, he has played 14 games and is 8+9. As of today, he is tied for the most goals in the KHL and is second in the KHL in total points.

Man I'm really interested to see what kind of numbers he'll put up in the NHL. I think the Calder race next year is gonna be unreal, Tarasenko, Kuznetsov, Granlund, all the 2012 top prospects.

Euro prospect for the Calder? It's probable with: Tarasenko, Kuznetsov, Granlund, Grigorenko, Yakupov, Galchenyuk(US-Russian-Belarussian)!

If Tarasenko stays on his current pace, he's up there with the all-time leaders for 19 year olds:

Name League Season Age GP G A PTS PTS/GP
Tarasenko KHL 2011-12 19 14 8 9 17 1.21
Malkin RSL 2005-06 19 44 21 26 47 1.07
Bure USSR 1990-91 19 44 35 11 46 1.05


NHL Rookie Seasons
Name League Season Age GP G A PTS PTS/GP
Tarasenko NHL 2012-13 20 ?? ? ? ? ?
Malkin NHL 2006-07 20 78 33 52 85 1.09
Bure NHL 1991-92 20 65 34 26 60 0.93

Pretty sick company. Bodes well for a huge rookie season.

Huberdeau and Strome will probably make their respective teams... it will be quite the impressive group.

He's just leeching off of Lehterä and Enlund.

Maybe the Blues should acquire Enlund's rights as well (unless he's a free agent).

Is Tarasenko considered as a 19-years old? In December he will be 20.

What I don't get is, why a player like Ovechkin can score at less then a ppg in the RSL can be considered a franchise player and then Tarensenko, who is on pace for something like 1.5 ppg, isn't.
