A thread for every player: Evgenii Dadonov

Evgenii Dadonov

(rankings among Checkers forwards)

GP: 35 (15th)
Goals: 3 (16th)
Assists: 16 (5th)
Points: 19 (11th)
Points per game: (7th)
PIM: 6 (18th)


Age: 23 (March 12, 1989)
Height: 5'10" (1.78m)
Weight: 178lb (81kg)

Contract status: RFA
Previous contract: 3yr/$1.96m ($875k in NHL, $65k in AHL)
Acquired: Trade from Florida for Jon Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom


I have to admit, I learned a lesson with this one. When JR made that trade, I saw it as totally risk-free. Matsumoto and Lindstrom had no shot of coming here, whereas Dadonov had an outside chance, so it seemed like all upside. Then the Checkers fell apart, missing the playoffs, shortening our prospects' seasons, costing the organization money, and depriving the fans in Raleigh of a neat chance to host a playoff game in 2012. So much for there being such thing as a risk-free trade.

If Dadonov could make the roster next season, that would be great. I don't see it happening based on his half-season in Charlotte and I have to think he's on a plane to Russia if he gets cut in training camp. Fair to assume he signs a contract, gives it a shot in October and we spend the next couple of seasons wondering if he ever comes back?

Also, what's up with the extra "i"?

I still like the trade, Matsumoto and Lindström are career AHLers, so it's two older guys who are prolly never gonna make it except for maybe the occasional emergency call up, off the books, whereas Dadanov has a shot. Granted it f***ed up Charlotte, but I see that as a one off. I could see him being a decent 3rd line energy guy and he does have slick hands and a nice wrist shot. 10-15 goals and some spot PP time I don't think is out of the question if he busts his butt and gets 100% serious.

Would love to see him signed and get a shot at a top 6 spot in camp, but doubtful he beats out our established players. That means he'll be KHL bound for at least one year, though as we've seen with Babs that's hardly a permanent situation with this team.

The only problem with that plan is that it doesn't benefit our team in any way. The only upside I can imagine is that he's marginally cheaper than Dwyer, Stewart, et al. But it's not enough of a difference to really matter in the big picture.
