Vadim Tarasov turns 28 on New Year's Eve and currently plays net for Novokurnetsk Mettalurg of the RSL. He has played with them since 02-03 after playing in Quebec with the Citadelles in 01-02.

Andre Bashkirov is 34 years old and plays for Cherepovets Severstal of the RSL after 4 seasons in the Swiss league with Lausanne. He has 1 point in 6 games played. He last played for the Habs and the Citadelles in 99-00.

Alex Buturlin is playing in his third straight season with Tolyatti Lada in the RSL. The 23 year old has 11 points in 31 games. He attended a Habs camp after being drafted (he played juniors in Sarnia of the OHL for two years after being drafted in 1999), but has yet to make any recent noise about coming over to play pro hockey in North America.

Buturlin is still quite young, is enjoying decent success in the RSL, and the Habs still own his NHL rights, so he still could come over to North America at some point. I would be surprised if we saw the other two in North America again.

Thanks... If we have to put those three players back in our prospect's ranking, where would they rank?

Hey Don you forgot Bashkirov's stint in the RHI, the roller hockey league.

Alll 3 guys have been a part of the Senior National team for Russia, which is good to see. Buturlin I wouldn't mind seeing over here someday as he plays a good defensive game and has good size, but I would be surprised if he ever came over.

One of our Russian picks that seems to be having a very solid season is Andrei Kruchinin. '98, 7th round, 189th overall. He has been paired with Alexi Yemelin at points this year and is having a career year stats wise. He is leading his team in scoring for defensemen and he's only 4 pts less then teammate Buturlin.

Likely on a golf course somewhere enjoying the retired life.

it seemed like tarasov was putting up great numbers and that he would get a good shot in north america but he just disappeared so quickly.... that's a strange case but it just goes to show how prospects can change from hot to cold in a matter of days.

What I had heard was that he was pissed over his lack of playing time in the playoffs since he sat the bench and Garon wasn't very good (nor was the team) In addition I had heard his wife was not too happy living over here.
