2013 WJC Russian Roster

Tough loss tonight.

Who do you guys think are good candidates for next year's roster?

Please tell me there are defense-men that can actually win battles along the boards and don't turn the puck over every time they touch it.

Here is the list of eligible players for next year:

Goalkeepers

Makarov, Andrei
Vasilevskiy, Andrei

Defenders

Sergeyev, Artem
Naumenkov, Mikhail
Nesterov, Nikita

Forwards

Kucherov, Nikita
Yakupov, Nail
Grigorenko, Mikhail
Kosov, Yaroslav
Khokhlachev, Alexander

It's a good thing that both goaltenders are eligible to play for next year especially considering the tremendous experience they've gained from this year. I also think the group of forwards is a solid one but I'm assuming some of them might not be released should they do good in the NHL. I'm thinking of Yakupov primarily but Grigorenko is also a possibility.

These guys should be returning. A good group of returning players.

On another note, was I ever disappointed in Kucherov's effort tonight, hopefully he was just out of energy.

EDIT: If Grig doesn't make the NHL next year, Khokhlachev Namestnikov Grigorenko up the middle would be awesome.

Generation of 93's is kinda meh, but together with 94's we should have a competent team.

Kucherov can stay home. I don't want him on the team.

Horrible performance yesterday.

He was just staring at the puck the whole game.

good team hands down, but if we don't have Grigorenko and Yakupov (which very-very likely) it's not all that good all of a sudden

I think Yakupov and Grigorenko will be definitely in NHL next season so we can count them off.

Assuming that everyone will be available (I know Yakupov and Grigo probably won't) but ideally I would like to see:

Kosov - Grigorenko - Yakupov
Shalunov - Prokhorkin - Kucherov
Slepyshev - Khokhlachev - Zlobin
Shmelev/Yakimov - Kadeikin - Nichushkin

Of course, some will improve significantly, and some will stagnate, which makes it really hard to guess right now. And as usual, there will be someone who surprises and plays well in KHL at the beginning of next season, like Kosov this year, or even Zemchenko...

I know Kucherov and my guess is he never got back in shape after his SSS injury. He looked good only in the 1st game, but after he looked slow and obviously tired. He wasn't even 1/2 of himself...

There is a rumour that the Canadian and Russian junior teams will be playing some games against each other this Summer. Two in Russia and two back in Canada.
I think it may hold some validity as Canada will be hold a training camp in Russia this August.

At this moment, it's not really a rumour, just some things need to be finalized.

yes, I was very pessimistic in the beginning, but with 91 MHL was just started and I didn't know as many players as I do now. We'll see, it's gonna be tough at home without true leaders.

Not that I know so much about russian defenders at the junior level, but I wonder how much information you have about them?Do you get to see MHL or KHL?
