I've heard here and there that he's playing well; can someone fill me in on what exactly he's been doing well, strengths/weaknesses, etc.? Especially some of you who get to camp. Much appreciated. Thanks.
will he get more playing time in the ahl or in russia?
if he gets about the same either place, let's see him over here.
I would think if they sign him for the Amerks they'd want to play him enough to get an idea of where he is health-wise, talent-wise, development-wise, etc. and so he should get some decent playing time. There'd be a lot more interest in his development and therefore more reason to play him and keep a close eye on him.
If he's back in Russia there's no guarantee he gets big minutes in the RSL. He's just another player competing for ice time. As Artem seems to be comfortable on the ice, I would like to see him in Rochester.
