I ****ing loved this guy when he played for TPS in Finland during the lockout. Great vision and puck skills. Gotta love.

He has also learned how to effectively use his body against bigger players. Pretty impressive actually. He uses leverage really well, rather than relying on strength.

Yeah, Russell has been a pretty solid player for us. His offensive skills never really developed, but he was a guy who was rushed to the NHL and has played for Hitchcock for almost his entire career. But he has elite skating ability and is very tough despite his size. He can definitely make a play bringing the puck out of the zone. Limited offensive player though IMO, average-below average passer/vision, weak shot from the point.
