Taking into consideration the good season Perezhogin had in Russia this year, I think his chances of making the WC's squad for Russi are extremely good, I had my doubts because of all the players that may be ahead of him, but according to some posters on the Russian board, he'll make the team...
If that's the case, it's great news and means that we have a player that maybe can do alot more than what we think
He gets lots of love and hype here at the Habs board, but not that much elsewhere at HF or throughout hockey circles (as noted by his exclusion in several top 50 lists).
I know what you mean, but to me recognition isn't that important. Obviously being left off top 50 lists sucks, but does it really matter? To me it doesn't. Management knows what his abilities are and if they are excited about him that means more than a list.
Hype is just that-hype, it means nothing, once he comes over and plays well (as I hope he does) other people might start to appreciate him. But for now, Habs fans know what he can do and more importantly management knows what he can do they're in a position to make him play.
From who? Because despite his small stature, he's not shy from the physical play
I was kiddin cause Lebeau his probably the least physical player i've ever seen.
Being less physical than Lebeau his nearly impossible.
I was just wondering what type of player perez his cause last year i didn't pay much attention to the Dog's cause there was action in the NHL. And this year i hear a lot about the Dogs but Perez his playin in Russia ... so i didn't had the chance to see him play much...
Ive been saying for a long time that Perezhogin will be a NHL star.. A bit more recognition would be appreciated.
What is there to recognize? I agree that Perezhogin is developing really well right now, but how can anyone say that he will be an NHL star before he has even played an NHL game? I have some great expectations as well, but they are only expectations, nothing more.
IHMO, Perezhogin will become a nice top 6 scoring winger, in the mold of Samsonov (no, I'm not saying he will have a Samsonov-like production). Not the kind of guy who can carry the team on his back, but a nice, good offensive complement who can play in any situation.
He also once said Urquhart reminded him of Spezza... He's bound to get one right eventually...
Yes a poors man Spezza... Same frame, great hands, both are'nt physical, both doesnt always play with intensity in both ends of the ice... The main difference is that Spezza do everything at a higher level.
