Senators 2005 Draft Picks?

I'm not too familiar on the players that they've chosen, notably in the later rounds, I know Brian Lee is a set deal in the NHL, he's guaranteed to play there, but is there any talent from...

70 D Vitali Anikeyenko
95 C Cody Bass
98 C Ilja Zubov
115 LW Janne Kolehmainen
136 D Tomas Kudelka
186 D Dmitry Megalinsky
204 C Colin Greening

...that seem NHL bound. Any guys you think will be a break through, like Bochenski, or turn into elite players. And what are your overall impression of the Senators selections. Personally I think the Sens should have picked up at least 1 centre with their top 2 pics.

Can't tell you anything about anyone except Cody Bass. From all reviews, and from what I saw early in the rookie tourney/training camp Cody Bass should be in the NHL likely sooner than later. Great skater, sound fundamentals, great positional play and plays a physical brand of hockey. Could use about 10-20 lbs to solidify a dandy role in the bigs. John Madden type written all over him.

Anikeyenko was, at one point, considered a Top 10 pick but his stock fell drastically over the year.

Zubov is a highly skilled forward who could maybe be a 2nd line player in the future.

Could there be a better name? I don't think so.

Ottawa picked up the best Russian D, Anikeyenko, and best Russian C, Zubov, if they present themselves as the best D and C in their country then they can't be that bad. I would consider them steals in that case.

I don't think that you can say any prospect is a guarantee. Lee has a good shot at being in the NHL but thats all right now.

Zubov is considered a pretty damn good prospect. I know some even think he'll be a star player some day with the skill set he has. We'll see. Really impressive drafting year imo from the Sens.

Exactly what I'm saying, if he was the top drafted Russian, then he must be a lot better then a whole bunch of Canadians, and Americans that were drafted before him. Just teams are too scared to take a risk on Russians because they're loyal to their motherland and demand too much money in the future. Ottawa has been good in keeping a leash on them, i.e. Volchenkov.

lets on get too ahead of ourselves on the fact that we took the "top two russians". The russians had a horrible group of prospects this year and not one was thought of as a first rounder. Yes, its been said that we got guys lower than they should have, but the trick will be bringing them over with no IIHF agreement with Russia. That was the main reason these players fell to us, so hopefully we can reap the rewards of it.

Tomas Kudelka is 12th in the WHL in defenseman scoring in his rookie season with 14 pts in 23 games.
Hmmm, that all sounds familiar somehow...

Ok, maybe I'm dreaming a little... but it is a nice start.

Ala-kazam... Presto... wait until their contracts are up?
That's what is going on with Kaigorodov.

but we know that kaigorodov is a player, now that we have to decide on a prospect overseas within 2 years, we dont have the benefit of letting them season before we sign them. When a player is still signed by a team over there, we will have to pay a fair amount of royalties to the club that owns his rights, or else he will just re-enter the draft when he is eligable to be signed.

If their countries cause too many problems for them, maybe they'll just start leaving earlier for the CHL or AHL. Both Kostitsyn's, Kudelka and Meszaros were all 18-19 when they came over.

I agree - this really is among the best I've seen in recent years. A legitimate hockey jersey with the name 'Big Snake' written on the back is a marketer's wet dream.

I've aways said from a purely marketing perspective the Devils should trade for Miroslav Satan.

I know I would buy a Devils Jersey with Satan on the back.

Yeah I would be quite tempted to pick up that jersey.

I watch Bass a fair bit and he's a good prospect. Likely won't exceed a checking role, but has quickness and a bit of grit. He isn't overly physical because of his size, but he does throw his weight a bit.

there was a game tonight between the LHJMQ all-star team and a Russian team,the AT&T Challenge i think. Anikeyenko was playing for team russia. From what i saw, he's tall and skates good, but that's it. He made major mistakes, trying to hit instead of taking his position,losing the puck behind the net, was relying on hooking (as did most of the russians). Overall I wasn't very impressed with his play. Oh, he took a 10 minutes in the third for misconduct. But, even if it seems strange, he wasn't the worst!
