This could really go either way, he is a player for sure based on what I've seen in international competitions, but it's so hard to predict how his type of player will perform on the bigger stage. I'm hoping for a boom, and for him to be able to win some draws for us. I'm not holding my breath for the latter, but it would be nice.
This guy better be able to win a face-off. As much as I'm appreciating Backlund's new confidence, I really wish he spent the summer working on his game in the circle.
Hey guys, Flyers fan coming in peace. I'm so happy for Cervenka finally getting a shot in the NHL. As for the faceoffs, there are his stats from KHL http://en.khl.ru/players/16827/ . It seems that he didn't take as many faceoffs as a few of his teammates but his percentage is usually slightly under/above 50 percent and in the last 2 seasons went way higher. Hopefully he can keep it up.
