Vladdy Namestnikov

Let's admit it....this guys the bomb


http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...ith_character/

I'm trying to figure out two things:

A. His offensive upside

B. An NHL comparable

With respect to A. it feels like he's got 60pt+ NHL upside

as for B. I'm at a loss. On one hand his skill set seems a little like Burmistrov. But he's chippy, he chirps....he's improved defensively...he seems like a more pass first russian version of Brad Marchand......


What do Bolts fan think? Because I think this guys the real deal....and I trust Steve Y in developing him properly...

I hope he's nothing like Marchand, that guy is a bum and disgrace to watch sometimes. I havent seen much fim on him, but I see him as our 3rd line center in a couple of years. Hopefully can be a little like Staal and give us great depth down the middle, and maybe he replaces Vinny when he hangs um up.

See the Datsyuk one is interesting because that was a comparison for Burmistrov as well. Who is still an excellent young player himself looking to take some real strides next year.

The thing is Datsyuk is like Lady Byng esque...will Vladdy is a lil *****...in a good way...

He reminds me of the a-hole version of Tomas Plekanec.

I don't want any of our players to be another Brad Marchand. I can't stand that little wiesel.

I've heard some good things about him, haven't seen much of his play but Tampa do have some nice prospects that I hope turn out well, especially the Slovak ones because I'm biased
