I'm not saying he's Panarin, because 99.999% chance he's not. But would you decline to sign Panarin because you have enough small forwards already? You would look stupid in hindsight if you did.

If they really like him and think he has potential then he's another asset with upside.

But again I know nothing about him, just saying I wouldn't decline every small forward because we have a bunch.

Good housekeeping I guess but doesn't seem that necessary. I guess the plan is to go through as many Spencer Abbott's as necessary to find the next Artemi Panarin.

Size is irrelevant. You get players you think are good. They obviously liked him enough to bring him here.

Why must some look at size and completely make up their mind that it's a waste of time?

Soshnikov has been a great KHL find and he's not exactly big. Panarin is super small and is now of the best offensive wingers in the NHL.

Can we talk about the player, not the scale for a second?

Not really sure where he fits in to the team, but hey! if he's good enough to bump anyone out, then all the better!

Or maybe another Soshnikov or Komarov? Not every player has to be an all-star.

It's ok to find some good secondary pieces with interesting upside, you know?

I don't get why people don't understand this kind of signing.

Sweet, doubt they'd give him a contract if they didn't think he had potential. Safe to say he'll be a Marlie next year?

23 years old (few months older than Sosh), you would think he would have been assured he'll be given a fair shot at training camp to make the Leafs.

Lots of LW competition next year with Leivo, Rychel, Leipsic, Johnsson, etc.

Have to figure that someone will be shipped out, our part of a bigger move this summer.

It's possible. It depends if he's going to the World Championships?

Dont know anything about him aside from stats and the first post, however looks like a decent pickup.

You try to get talent no matter what size.

Why do you think he chose to sign in Toronto? I would like to think he had other suitors.

This guy is very skilled, they're hoping he can be an impact player, not another Soshnikov.

He can play center from what I've read, but he's probably more likely to be a winger in NA I assume?

panarin is bigger than this guy (only an inch), We have marner, Nylander, Komarov , Brown and Soshnokov with Leipsic likely here next year how many do we want? as long as someone is traded it should be fine but id rather not have the smallest team in the league.

Finnish superstar Leo Komarov and upcoming Finnish Wayne Gretzky might have helped a little?

Panarin also played for SKA. The team that has more talent then any other, and regularly puts a lot more pucks in the net then most teams.

Edit: Not implying they are on the same tier. But players on SKA regularly have higher production.
