Oh the irony. In 1993, this club didn't want to have anything to do with Prospal. During the last lockout, he lead Ceske Budejovice back to the Elite League......

Here's highlights of the AkBars-Lokomotiv game. The video starts with Anisimov and ends when Anisimov scores the game-winning goal at the 60th minute. That was a great play for him to make d-man to miss a hit. And Sanford was fenomenal in net for the Loko, once he made 4 saves in a row. Tonight Anisimov scored another late goal to give his team 3:2 lead at the 55th minute against Filatov's Salavat Yulaev.
Both Anisimov and Bobrovsky were invited to the Russian national team for participating at the Eurotour tournament.

Joe Pavelski without Joe Thornton in the KHL - 1 assist in 7 games so far. The best team scorers Platt and Stapleton couldn't produce anything with him at center. Now Pavs was moved to the 3rd line and tonight played 15 minutes. He was good on PK and in the face-off circle though. Someone who wanted him as a centerpiece in Nash's trade should watch a few Dinamo Minsk games.

So, what you're saying is ... you don't like him?

Is it any surprise that a guy produces less when he isn't playing with Joe Thornton? It's no secret that players like Thornton make everyone around them better - that's why they are superstar players. Pavelski is a well above average two-way forward in the NHL, and is at least equal to a guy like Brandon Dubinsky. Don't be surprised when Dubinsky produces less with the Jackets since, you know, he won't be on a team with Brad Richards or Marian Gaborik.

Don't think you could have much more of an off year than he had last year. Even playing with the Jackets I believe he can bump that.

No thanks, I'd rather watch some ECHL before KHL.

As far as your rant, it's early in the season. I'm not shocked at the development. I've watched Pavelski plenty. If this 7 game stretch is your evidence, I find it beyond laughable.

I agree Pavelski is overrated, but 7 games, during a lockout, in a completely different league doesn't prove anything.

Sorry everyone who tried to watch Joe Pavelski playing for Dinamo Minsk today. He was scratched. Probably I'm not the only one who dislikes him. Intresting that today is Pekka Rinne's 30th birthday and he got his first KHL shutout.

Bet your loving that. Bet I don't care if Pavelski ever plays in the KHL again.

Saw Prospal on the ice tonight at the Ice Works coaching the AAA Junior Jackets. I was surprised he hasn't left yet based on the above announcement.

He was in the Czech Republic. The Elite League is on a 2 week break now.

Don't read too much into his return.

Dubi rarely played with Richards or Gaborik. He put up his best numbers (the last three seasons) when playing with Anisimov as his center and Callahan as the RW. One of those two guys is already with him in Columbus, and you guys have a couple of players who could play the RW in the same way that Cally does (Umberger is the most obvious). I would be absolutely shocked if Dubinsky didn't score 20+ goals and 50+ points in the first full season with Columbus.

Even if he doesn't spend time on a line with them, he will still see improved numbers due to the fact that he won't be keyed on as a top offensive player. In Columbus, there are no elite level players ahead of him on the depth chart, and thus he will see more time against the Duncan Keiths, Ryan Suters, and Zdeno Charas of the league.

I disagree. Dubi seems to be at his best as one of the focal points. His best season (year before last), Richards hadn't arrived yet and Gaborik missed extended time (and didn't play well when he wasn't injured). Dubinsky led the team in scoring. The year before that, Gaborik was awesome, but nobody else did much besides him, Prospal and Dubinsky.

I get your argument, and normally I would agree with the logic, but Dubinsky's track record just shows that he doesn't quite fit that mold. I still think that a big part of his slump from last season was the fact that Torts immediately pulled him down to the bottom 6 (while other players like Anisimov, Callahan, and Richards got copious chances to redeem themselves). Put Dubi in the mix, and he'll come through.

I'm pretty sure Dubinsky's numbers went down last season because he was on a team with Brad Richards. Gaborik has been there for 3 seasons but I don't know how much if at all they played together during that time.

That's not about like or dislike. I just don't think Pavelski is a good player in general.
Every European league is on 2 weeks break now cause of the national teams tournaments. Right now Russian national team is playing against Finland at the Karjala cup. After 2 periods Russia leads 1:0. Anisimov with a goal, Zherdev with assist, Bobrovsky is on the bench.

Well my assumption is that you don't know him personally, so you were referring to his game. Since you don't appreciate his game you don't like him as a player. You've admitted it and you also had an axe to grind since you brought it up in the first place.

That's fine that you don't appreciate his play. I don't share your view. His play in the KHL is not proof that you are correct. It's also not proof that you are not.

I agree, and I think its very similar to the situation with Jack Johnson. These are players that don't want to be rank and file role players on great teams, they'd rather be leading a bad team on the path to recovery. They want the pressure, they perform better when they feel it.

This is the first season in many years that I don't have serious concerns about the locker room. I'm sure there are a few disgruntled players in there, but not like the problems we had in years past.

After the game with Finland (Finns won 2:1 in the SO) Russians are praising Anisimov a lot. Looks like he's the first choice to be the 3rd line center at the Olympics. His game was called "fundamental". Anisimov is doing everything - goes to the net, fights along the boards, plays on PK, he's gritty and confident. He looks like a well established all around player. Should I say that I would take him over Pavs any day of the year?

Anisimov seems like a less physical, more offense version of Svitov, is that close?
