Those two have been the only reason why Kladno is not a bottom feeding team this year. It's sad that they didn't end up on the same line in the NHL. They have been amazing.

Plekanec has been hurt and missed a game lately. The very last game, against Zlin which is a team Jagr hasn't beaten since he was 22 during the first lockout (in fact Kladno hasn't beaten them since) and with half of his team injured, Jagr carried Kladno on his back with 5 assists to a 5-2 victory (Plekanec missed that game).

Giroux had 19 points in 9 games before getting hurt... But the answer is Varlamov.

I would argue that Tavares is doing better than both Seguin and Bergeron.

Seguin: 29 games, 40 points.
Tavares: 25 games, 39 points.
Bergeron: 21 games, 29 points.
That's nothing...

Omark: 31 games, 45 points













(in case it's not obvious enough)

This thread needs more Tim Stapleton. Former Jet, 4th liner, undrafted is near the top of the KHL scoring race. He was hovering around 3rd for a while. Tied with Kovalchuk as we speak. At the beginning of last year he was in the AHL.

From what I hear, nobody was even interested in signing him at free agency.

Edit: I may be wrong about him in the AHL, or may not, but he was definitely a healthy scratch for quite a few games.

Malkin was the best player in the world last season and he's the best player in the world this season too playing in the KHL which is currently the best season in the world. The only player with more points in the KHL is his teammate who has played a couple more games then Malkin.

I'd like to direct everybody's attention to who leads that league in points.

He was an underrated player for the Jets last season as well IMO

I'm sure his other winger helps too.

Right now I'd say it's either Malkin or Varlamov.

The KHL is the 2nd best league in the world to the NHL and those two are playing all world there.

Its hard to say someone in like the Swiss or German league is having the best season as the competition is not nearly as high as the KHL.

Czech Extraliga anyone? Any love for the 40 year old Jagr?

He's 20 lbs lighter, quicker and faster than he's been for the last 10 years and he's playing on NHL size rinks in the Czech Repulbic plus he's playing 20-25 minutes a game.

His 1.72 PPG leads that league and 74% of his points and PPG translate to the NHL. He's playing on a 141 Pts clip over 82 games or if you want to do the translation, 104 Pts over 82 games.

The guy deserves some credit. The KHL is a great league but it's not the only meaningful league in Europe. Playing on the smaller NHL sized rinks have to mean something.

I say if there is a season, Jagr plays at a PPG clip rather easily back in the NHL.

Malkin is not even his team's leading scorer. Jagr leads his team in goals, assists and points and is second in overall in league scoring (55 Pts in 32 games for Jagr to Ruziska's 59 Pts in 36 games). Jagr is also 3rd in goals and 1st in assists.

Jan Mursak, being a fringe NHL-er, yet tearing up EBEL, where some more prominent forwards like Vanek, Gagner and Grabner are also playing.

Does the AHL count as abroad? How about Jordan Eberle? He is currently tearing apart the AHL with 49pts in 32 games. Taylor Hall is doing great too with 33pts in 24 games.

Malkin, Kovy, and Ovechkin in the KHL. They're definitely the best players there, and some of the best over here.

Definitely not "the best", but I like this answer. He was supposed to get a very legitimate chance on the Wings last season, but the fluke injury in the preseason kind of squandered his chance of getting a good look last year. Hope the Wings brass doesn't let it him go until they give him a good chance. He was going to play on a line with Helm, that would be a lot of speed.

Malkin and Varly seem like the easy answer.

I like seeing the non-superstars who are crushing it.

Malkin and Varliamov, considering the level of competition they're lighting up and shutting down, respectively.

I'll throw out Zetterberg's name as well, if he's still shredding the Swedish league with his soon-to-be linemate Damien Brunner.

Haha. Not that he wouldn't merit it anyway, but what coach would have the balls to deny his owner any amount of ice time he wants.

Jordan Eberle is a good answer. He's absolutely dominating the AHL. 14 more points than anyone not named Schultz in only 32 games.

Mr. Unsustainable is killing it, as usual. Hall's been great also, 3rd in points per game behind Eberle and Schultz.

Switzerland is not Sweden, you know.
