At any case Zhafyarov isn't a servicible 4th liner.
From watching him play I wouldn't be so sure. He's a not a lights out elite top player at junior level. If everything works out well for him he might become a 2nd, 3rd liner. I don't see real superstar potential in him. That doesn't mean he's a bad player. But NT? Really?
Refereeing was extremely one-sided in that game. A fact recognized by other Finnish hockey fans who watched the game.
A fact no one cares about in a pre-season game(conveniently ignored the fact same people said Torpedo played very undisciplined). Besides, Rönn works in the KHL, why would that league even hire such an incompetent ref (legit question)?
