Perez has great upside but he needs to polish his finishing skills, and his puck protection. He loses the puck a LOT.

I'm not ragging on the kid, I'm glad he's on the team, I'm just not sure what kind of player he'll be in 5 years. He'll be a good one, but 30 goals 40 assists good, or 15/15 and a terror on a checking line ?
I don't know if he'll ever be a top 10 scorer, but I do feel his offensive potential is untapped. Once in a while, he'll make a jaw-dropping goal(montreal knows what I mean) displaying all his skills. There are alot of facets to his game he's still not exlpoiting to its potential. He's very good with the puck, but I see a lot of tentativeness still, he's using his speed more then last year, but at the end of last game, you could see he was trying to get to another gear. He just started using his shot the last two games, he's got a great one, but he's still a bit shy with it. I think the afinogenov comparisons are good(they even look alike), but at the same age, Perezhogin is a stronger player, both physically and on the forecheck.

I am delighted by Perezhogin's play. I had a lot of faith in his offensive potential, but I am seeing a complete hockey player this year.

Montreal has started drafting well again, but evidently, they are developing their players much, much better than in the past. (Say, the last 10 years. I am really looking forward to seeing what will become of Chipchura and Kostitsyn.)

Perezhogin just turned 23, so I am convinced that he will get better offensively. I don't like the comparisons to Afinogenov, Perezhogin's puck control is not as good, but I see a guy who will become a solid player on both sides of the puck, and will no doubt score more than 60 pts some time in the next few years.

Tonight, he had several outstanding chances, and was easily one of hte best players on the ice. I'm hopeful that he can continue this and that this isn't just a flash in the pan moment. I think after Hossa scored 4 goals in 4 games for us in 2002/03, I've decided to reserve some judgement on some of our younger players. However, Perezhogin has improved steadily this year, and I'm getting the feeling that this isn't just a hot streak.
the difference between hossa then and perez now is that perez has game(defensive game,forecheck,speed and corners)and hossa was a floater who scored 4 in 4 games.


Huet is the man thats all...

Perez has improved and has regained my confidence in him. i lost interest after the stick swinging incident and kind of disapeared off my radar. Last year he just wasn't consistant. Now he seems to have developed a good all round game and starting to turn heads. Good for him. Hope his offensive game starts to come and we will have a really good offensive 2-way forward.


p.s. Can't believe raycroft is on teh ballot and Huet is not. I mean only the Toronto media and a few doubting Hab fans thought Huet wasn't the man. He is a great goalie and he proved that last season and now again. I never lost faith in him, i saw great technique and a few bad bounces early in the year but he was still pretty solid. And now he is on fire....

I guess you forgot about Higgins But ya, other then the 3-4 games Perez played with the lazier russians, he's looked very good.

Those extra 10 pounds didnt slow him down and they are really helping him in the corners. He has blazing speed and hes using it well.

He is this year, exactly where Higgins was at the biggining of the year last year. IMO we will see similar breakout soon and this of course is good news for our team. Its good to see what Perezhogin, Higgins, Latendresse and Komisarek bring to this team.

I absolutely agree with this. Many people, including myself, have stressed about conifdence issues in he case... while he seems pretty at ease with Bonk and Johnson, I think it's still an issue for him. Look at last night's game; he works hard, scores a beauty... next three shifts, he tries Superman like plays (all failed)... I don't know what to think anymore, is it a lack of confidence or a lack of skills. Also happend against TO when he scored his first goal, tried all sorts of crazy moves.. all failed.

just a thought.

What??? He rarely loses the puck, actually he only has 1 giveaway accroding to NHL stats; last on the team in that departement........................... and is also 4th on the team in takeaways with 13. He's very strong on the puck, in the corners, along the boards. I don't understand.

Agreed completely, and that's probably why everyone is so ecstatic about this guy, he's playing great and yet he seems to still try to go faster, quicker, stronger, etc...

Plus... on the bench or between plays he's smiling a lot, looking like he's having lots of fun out there... can only help if you have fun doing your job!

I think you focus on him way too much man. Your trying to disect his every move. What superman like plays are you talking about? I saw him try to flip the puck up through his feet but it slipped off his stick. The next shift he intercepted a pass and walked in and took a clapper on goal. I was glad when I saw a burst of energy after scoring. I'd take that everyday over another Sundstrom-like robot on this team. If the PB&J line is kept together all year, Perezhogin will lead them in even strength points. That's my prediction.

Samsonov is actually leading the team for even strenght points with Mike Johnson(95-96 in the NHL..ouch). Kovalev is 1 point back.

I'm not trying to discet every play of Perezhogin, I could do the same with any other player.. simply Zhogy's one of my favorites.

As for last game's sudden Superman symptom; I remembered my gf and I just laughed out loud after Zhogy scored his goal against the Laffs.. the next few shifts, he tried so hard but blasted pucks like 5 feet wide... So after Perezhogin scored his 2nd goal I looked at my gf and told her it's going to be Superman time, we laughed.

The same thing happend last game. The shift after he scored (or the 2nd), Zhogy entered the zone and tried to pull a between the legs puck move and simply lost control of it.. how many times did you see Zhogy enter the zone and try a move like that? Next ****, he barley crossed the blue line and took " THE slapshot" which was about 3 feet wide... you never see him try that.

anyways...

I'm a huge Perezhogin supporter. All I have to say is that last game he reminded me SO much of Mighty Max... hey, didn't he have a ****** start to his career too?

Good thing he's trying... too hard you say ? he could try even harder and I would still be happy...

Really, the skills are there, the effort too... as long as he keeps working hard and try to learn as much as he can... what more can we ask from him ?
