I've always really, really liked him. Not the biggest, fastest or quickest (pretty quick though) but he has tremendous skill. Competes really hard, uses his great hands on both sides of the puck picking guys off on defense.

Skill and compete, I like that. The fact that he isn't that big isn't exactly great for us. All three of our top prospects (Baertschi, Koko, Gaudreau) are pretty tiny along with most of our forward lineup.

Hoping for the best.

Really think he could be a top line player. Really talented kid and it's tough to see him go.

Hmmn, I think he is a bit disappointing so far.
I saw 3 Spartak games with him in KHL and he looked actually poor. He started with good minutes early on in the season but he really let his team down with lots of bad turnovers and was benched quiet a bit for being somewhat a liability. He was trying to do stuff that worked in junior, obviously it didn't work in KHL. The later games that I saw with him it looked like he didn't really improve from the first 2.

Most commonly he would try to skate in to the zone but was overpowered or forced to give the puck up very often. It got to a point where it was pretty predictable and bland. His stats were pretty bad too.

Probably the reason why Boston is including him in every trade offer right now. Doesnt sound like a typical Bruin.

Interesting prospect here not getting enough talk. One of the AHL leading rookies and is almost a PPG at 20 there, which isn't entirely common. Has really exploded in the second half of the AHL season with 23 points in his last 15 games (8G - 15A)

Curious if he has a future with the Bruins considering the Center depth they have. Not much of a flight risk considering he has been in North America since he was 15, so he should be getting some NHL looks eventually.

Has his projections changed any since this point last year?

I wonder if he'd convert to wing. The Bruins tried Spooner at wing and it wasn't a fit, same with Soderberg. He's really turned it on recently. He has great chemistry with Seth Griffith. The two have been point machines.

I'd imagine the B's will give him a shot toward the end of the season if they've locked up a playoff spot. He came up and practiced in between Lucic and Iginla while Krejci was at the Olympics.

Anyone care to take a stab at his NHL projection?
