Grebshenkov and Pushkarev? How are they doing on the Monarchs?

I dont watch too many LA games so I havnt seen Grebs play while he was briefly up, but what are your guys takes on these two? How are they playing on the Monarchs? Upside? Likely destination at this point?


thanks


note: this thread was moved to the fantasy board originally for unknown reasons so i reposted it hoping some monarch fans can give me input on Pushkarev

Grebs puts up the points but has been disappointing in overall play. I know Kings management still has high hopes, but he will proba bly remain in Manchester for the rest of this season.

Pushkarev, well the opinions are mixed. Some people think he has star potential, I am not so sold on him. The skill is there, but he hasn't really produced up to his potential in either the WHL or AHL.

He wont be called up this season and will probably play in Manchester for atleast next season as well.

Well, before it gets posted back on the Fantasy board...

I can only comment on what I've seen of Grebs during his call-ups...at his best with the Kings, he's looked solid...good puck-moving....calm demeanour when he gets the puck...offensive potetnial...

At his worst...this is from some watched games and a lot of radio...he made foolish plays in both zones that cost the team some goals...

I can tell you that most Monarchs fans were glad to be rid of him when he was called up to LA and sad to get him back...and I can also tell you that many solely Kings fan posters were very very critical of him while he was here...

If I had to guess, I'd say that he can eventually become a #4 d-man who kicks in good offense and blows fans minds with the occasional defensive gaff...

As for Pushkarev...no clue...

You honestly think Push has any chance at cracking the Kings lineup?

He is behind atleast Tambellini, Kanko and Tukonen. And fairly or not, the Kings would rather call up Noah Clarke, Connor James or Matt Ryan as well.

Plus factor in the arrival of Kopitar and possibly Boyle, and he gets pushed back even farther.

And the 40 pts he is on pace for doesn't help his cause much either.

Monarchs fans can probably answer better, but I'd say go for it...loooking at Reddenbach's stats, Grebs probably has more upside.

Pushkarev presents a peculiar situation to the Monarchs. He likes to hold the puck in the zone, circle behind the net, weave in and out of traffic. Think a very "raw" Sergie Samsonov. This doesn't fit well with the offensive system in that his linemates rarely know where the hell he's going and many times he ends up at a dead end (read skates into an opponent and turns it over). He was recently benched and told to watch how he was supposed to play. They're trying to get him to play a more direct game...

I've only had the opportunity to watch Reddenbach play a couple of times this season and nothing comes to mind either way...

Grebeshkov? mehhh...
