People need to realize the old boys network is still alive and well with many clubs in the KHL- rookies simply don't get the opportunities they do here in the NHL.

Petrov will be with the Islanders next season...book it.

Other than to play against the best hockey players in the world ? If he's truly competitive, like most hockey players are, he'll want to come to North America to play against the best. He stated last year he wanted to.

What about the likes of Ovy and Malkin... Petrov is not in their class, but was rated vert highly, the derailing factor in Petrov falling in the draft was his status with Russia.

However, like the aforementioned players, the NHL is always going to be the league where players want to be. Although the KHL can dish out the money, the NHL is still the prominent league in the world for premiere hockey.

I could be wrong, but I feel like there is more a chance for kids in Russia to be able to name NHL players, oppose to kids in America being able to name anyone in the KHL (that is not a spec to come over to NA).

Kirill appears to have gained a step...looking good for the Leopards here, and with no extension signed yet in a KHL season that is winding down and toward the playoffs, look for Kirill to finally join the Islanders this summer.

With limited ice time, and being demoted to the third and fourth lines as most young players are in the KHL, this video will have you shaking your head...

He has skill but lets wait till he at least signs a contract before we call him a blue-chipper.

lets hope Snow can get Petrov to sign and that Kirill develops into a good NHL player because the islanders need help badly

How old is Petrov now? He seems like he really did not have good stats in the KHL which is a lot worse of a league than the NHL.

He's 20 right now and will be 21 in April I believe. One of the main reasons he is still in Russia is partly because of his contract and partly because his mother is ill. Not sure what she has, but I did read it in more than one article that he was staying because of his mother, however fully intends on joining the Isles at some point this year.

There were questions obviously flying around of he was trying to back away from coming to camp or not. He is not avoiding the situation.

As for his lack of "production". These leagues tend not to play young players. Just like the Swedish Elite league. You can be a great up and comer, but if you haven't been with the team for a few years, you are gonna play on the fourth line. It doesn't help getting injured either.

He definitely has the hands and the size..played enough with men to step into the NHL...but we all have to wait until camp...

KHL is worse then NHL. But that doesn't mean that it's easy to put up big numbers in KHL. It's a low scoring league.

Petrov has taken a step forward in his development this season, but he still has plenty of room for improvement.

I think it would be better for him to stay in KHL for 1 more season.

He is 21 years old. He is 4th on his team in scoring, despite only getting 14 minutes a game. The players ahead of him are all in their 30s, two of which (Morozov and Niko Kapanen) played in the NHL for a few years.

His numbers are not dominant, but nobody is saying he is as good of a prospect as Tarasenko or Kuznetsov. Petrov is a solid prospect with a decent chance of being a 2nd line NHL player in a short time.

It isn't that it is in America or Canada it is that the NHL has the top players from around the world in it.

Petrov's skating style in that video somewhat reminds me of Tavares'.
