I could see Bourque doing pretty well with AK Bars is he stays focused. Obviously they are going to be a pretty good team anyways, so he will be able to find his way on to the score sheet pretty often and he will have the help of Timmy Stapleton to adjust, who seems to have the KHL style figured out more than more NA players that I've seen. I can see him being just a little less than a point-per-game player there.
right, one-dim player, who wilts at any sign of physical contact...I see - 52 games (if somehow he finishes the season) - 20 pts.
Savinainen (sp?) is rumored to the KHL. Rather average per stats, but may be a late bloomer? played at the WC
Savinainen is not the biggest guy, or the fastest, or or the most skilled. But he makes things happen by always giving his best. He can do everything there is to be done in the ice. Teamplayer. Crazy. Heart of a lion...
depends how much money he wants to make...Detroit/Monreal would love to have him for the right price.
Rumours are there are NHL offers, could just be posturing for a better KHL contract though. Im dreaming that he goes to Detroit. He's already burned bridges with too many other teams and not many of the other teams make sense. Detroit is definitely a candidate IMO.
The Caps should sign Zherdev. He would be a huge upgrade over a ton of their players and would fit in nicely. The guy has completely changed his game. His defense has improved tremendously.
first few seconds were Zherdev backchecks and takes the puck away from Spartak player,shows exactly that,not even talking about the incredible goal he scored.
I hope he stays here,hes one of my favourite players in KHL and one of leagues stars.
