Pavel Buchnevich vs Andre Burakowsky

Two players that seem to have a chance to be picked in the first round or early second round.

Don't know much about both players beyond the fact that Pavel is russian, Andre is swedish and I get confused about which is which when they come up in a conversation.

Any poster that has seen them both care to chip in ?

Burakowsky is a very talented offensive player. He is very quick and slippery, his skating really stands out. He can play both center and wing, he often plays center on the J20 team and winger on the senior team. He is very dominant playing against his own age group but has not yet looked confident playing against men. Often he tries to do too much with the puck and loses it in bad places, he is not really good defensively without the puck either. So far he has looked a bit like Filip Forsberg did last year, he is still not very mature as a player but he could have a major breakthrough any time.

There have been rumors that he will sign a contract with a SEL-team next season. This puts Burakovsky in a pretty bad situation, nobody knows whether Malmö is willing to give him much icetime to develop if he's gone for next season anyway.
