The friendly Russian

Anyone else really happy with how Saprykin played the other day? I love his speed, and his quick release. If only he was a bit stronger, I often see him getting pushed onto his ass. He was a lot better at this in the last game.

I hope we can keep him for next season. Hopefully he gets promoted soon, so we can see him at his best. I wouldn't mind him on the 3rd line instead of Neil, or instead of Schaefer on the 2nd line.

Saprykin impresses me quite a bit. Every time he's on the ice, I find myself hoping he gets a goal - you can tell he's been craving one for a long time now.

the guy is energy. When the others see how hard this guy who didn't even make the starting playoff roster is working, that's gotta give them some fire if they were at all thinking about dogging it.

very true. Same with Volchenkov. How can you dog it when a teammate comes out and says if its not broken I play.

And I'm sure it goes both ways with Vov, watching Heater and Spez will be the catalyst to Volchenkov's 80 goals next season.

Love him to bits. I agree he runs around like a chicken with his head cut off and is insanely sloppy, if he could reel it in a bit he'd be solid. Reminds me of a less finely tuned Comrie or Vermette. The offensive zone penalties have got to stop but the elbowing was just self-defense and the tripping call was ********.

Schubert and McAmmond just need to go to the net, because that's where Saprykin will be throwing it no matter what.

Love the way Saprykin has played. Could do without a couple of the penalties he took for no good reason though.

Saprykin has been playing okay, but that line needs to get the puck on the net more often. Also, that line has been playing pretty terribly defensively. I'm not impressed by that

Saprykin may remind you of a less finely tuned Comrie or Vermette, but one thing he has in his favor which the others don't have to the same degree is size---he's not too easy to push around.

Another great game tonight. He was really strong on the puck and kept coming up with it somehow. He has all the parts (including great size and strength as you mention jasonjim), he just needs to put it together.

edit: he also looked really good with Heatley and Spezza on a shift tonight. Not saying there's any room for him with them this playoffs, but maybe next season...

He had one just real, real awesome shift.

Solid game overall.

Have been watching this guy and waiting for him to bust out since his early Calgary days. I hope he is more than the energy guy everyone is saying he is and will start to pot a few.

His line mates are not good enough. Might get lucky, but his line is just a hard working line.

Mccamond is pretty good.

He's good at what he does but he is not really a goal scorer. Scored 20 goals once in his career and that was five years ago and only has three goals in 29 playoff games.

Great at working hard and the PK but offense out of McAmmond is a bonus.

Put Saprykin on the second PP unit and he'll get us a goal or two next round.

Saprykin-Fisher-Comrie
Meszaros-Preissing

If nothing else Oleg can tumble all over the crease.

Pretty much everything McAmmond has generated this year has been from a puck scramble or playing with Alfie. The 4th line is not counted on for offense. Schubert has no points at all this post-season.

edit: actually watching McAmmond's highlight package on Nhl.com a) Schubie's had some nice setups b) McAmmond's got a great shot. Should use it more often.
