Sam Carrier update: 3G/10A/13Pts/9PIMs/+6 in 10 games played for Baie-Comeau; he's in the top 10 in Q dmen scoring with fewest games played among that group; Baie-Comeau has 10W/4L so far this season and play today.

Injury news: now 2 Caps prospects on the sidelines - Galiev out and now Patrick Wey.

"Patrick Wey was cut with a skate blade and severed a tendon in his foot, expected to be out at least 6-8 weeks."

According to this Kuznetsov has been playing center.

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Adam-...pect/155/39055

Quote:
Yevgeni Kuznetsov, Center, Washington Capitals – Not a whole lot to add on the future star but 8 goals in 15 games is extremely impressive. My main issue is he doesn’t trust his linemates and being put back at center for the first time in 3 years has not been a great move, he is very greedy and should be a winger. If Caps fans are pi$$ed that OV isn’t scoring anymore have no worry...Kuznetsov averages 9 shots a night. He leads the league in GWG’s with 3 and if you want a win you send this kid out.

Carrier named to QMJHL's Subway Series team.

Kuznetsov was named to Russia's preliminary EHT roster.

Was glad to read the Carrier Q Super Series news; expected given his season to date, but never know with these rosters.

I think 2 or 3 of his goals have been penalty shots

That assist was very semin-esque with long reach, drag, and dish.

just discovered, some quotes from Kuznetsov, copyright goes to sports.ru (very reliable source)

http://www.sports.ru/tribuna/blogs/centre/249849.html

the article is named "Kuznetsov-Show version 3.0"

it's a highlight of his great plays and his quotes of this season so far

i was suprised to read what he said

some raw translation: "The game is better on bigger (olympic) ice.Game is slower, but there's more space.Indeed there are less shots on goal than in NHL rinks, but we're not used to that kind of hockey here in Russia, like they're not used to our style and rink.We (in Russia) even think that the game on NHL sized rinks is a bit stupid" - lol, i thought he prefers small rinks before i've read it.

next about his team Traktor of KHL:
"I wouldn't run from Traktor for sure (imho:does he mean like Malkin did?) The crew here is exellent(people who work in club).I've been said already, if i want to go (NHL) i shoud just talk with them.IF i'm convinced i'll talk about it."

next about the league (KHL):"If it were Ovechkin, Datsyuk, Malkin playing here, i wouldn't even think avout NHL"

so does he think that with these trio KHL would be on par with NHL or what does he mean???

next about AHL:"PLaying in AHL for 2-3 years is not for me."

that's true, i can't imagine he's being sent to minors.

about his transfer inside the KHL: "I wouldn't never move to another KHL team from Traktor.That's my point.I grew up in Chelyabinsk(city where the club located, it's in South Urals), i owe everything to this club.they made me a hockey player."


wow he's such a homer.he seems to be realy proud of his birthplace and his home club.

also what's worry me his club Traktor is becoming like super power in KHL, the governor of the region is giving full support to the team from this season.their goal is Gagarin Cup and the club now is very stable and rich, they can try to stop Kuznetsov from moving to NHL at all.

my worrys are:

1)home city he's having very tight roots with
2)big, stable club which is becoming a powerhouse in KHL
3)he's given a lot of ice time and top minutes with fine line partners
4)he married in summer, the girl is local and the ceremony was held in Traktor Ice-Arena
5) he's realy KHL's own Stamkos here.in other words he's HUGE star, and is growing more bigger.

i would like to see him in NHL, but now i'm a bit worried.

That's not news I want to hear. I think his uncertainty will lead to a new Semin contract this winter. I couldn't imagine us letting Sasha walk and Kuz staying put. We would be hurting.

I'm just wondering if he's willing to come over to the Caps on a rookie contract as opposed to making a butt load of money in KHL. He's making serious dough right now and once his current contract is up, Traktor will offer him well over 850k tax free.

So for now you get acquainted with the NHL with the Playstation.
Yes, when I play, my hands even tremble. I want to go there as fast as possible.
– What team do you play with?
– Washington. I get all the Russians, the young ones as well, and I play. I created myself and I play on a line ith Ovechkin.
– And who scores more?
– Me, of course (laughs). But only virtually.
– Capitals’ fans can’t wait for you to come.
Well, in a year. I don’t know if I’ll play with the Caps from the very start, but I plan to play there already the next season. Ovechkin told me that he will be helping me with the flat. I will live a couple of months at his place, then I’ll get my flat. I already surfed the internet to search the prices.

http://www.russianprospects.com/publ...article_id=699

I'm going to cling to this interview like it's a life-line. I know that the kid is still young, and I'm sure that his feelings on the matter have oscillated over time, but I still believe that he intends to come over next season. If he doesn't, I won't hold a grudge. It's his prerogative, and he has to do what he feels is best for his career, family and legacy as a hockey player.

I don't know. 850k taxable over 5-6 mil tax free does seem like a significant cut. Not to mention his agent's income. He doesnt need NHL. He's already on the Russian national team. Guaranteed ice time with Traktor or any other wealthy KHL club. He got a free appartment from the governor of Chelyabinsk for winning a gold medal in last year's WJC. Why start over in a foreign country? Getting paid dog *****, gotta buy a new crib, ice time not guaranteed, drag his new wife away from the family to a foreign country. It's not like Ovechkin will be running errands for him. If I were his agent, I'd be advising him to stay home and keep doing his thing. If anything, I'd be looking for a way to dodge the rookie contract and get paid Semin's money right away.

I'm not concerned. If the Caps want him, and want him to be in the NHL, he will be here.

If they want him to sit in Hershey for a season, he's not coming.

Considering how well he's playing in a mens league plus 'hopefully' having a healthy off season of training I hazard to guess he'll be slotted for a top 6 RW considering one or even both Semin/Knuble might be gone.

Not so sure he'd start on top two lines if semin is around. Perhaps on the 4th line with mp in a limited role during ES and some pp opportunities. Perhaps some second line fillin during sob time.
