for those who loved petrov!

i know petrov was a favorite by a lot and im the 1st on that list.

do you guys realise that we just got a better petrov here in samsonov!

he was the only player i couldnt hate as a bruins. always the best player on the ice for them in the last 2 playoffs matchup.

about the same size, tons of speed and SAME NUMBER as petrov!

i cried all i had when petrov left for nashville and now its like a better reincarnation of him.

entering his prime. man, im shaking and i dont have nobody to talk too.

im just overjoyed now!

pretty sure if you polled the main board who they would rather have

bulis or Sergei Samsonov

zednik or Sergei Samsonov


Sergei Samsonov would come out ahead both times and by a llarge margin


im a happy habs fan today just like you

I liked Petrov a lot! I'm glad to see Samsonov added to the roster We may see the "Shrimp line" back

The only big difference, Samso can do a lot better then Petrov did, but Petrov won a stanley cup . If heathtly and Kovalev too, Samsonov can put 35 goals and 40 assists + !

Yes I think the consensus has always been that Samsonov was a very similar version of Petrov with the same kind of moves and game only with a much better hockey sense.

I liked Petrov and am glad we got ourselves an other player as fun to watch as him only more effective.

Now I don't know about the goals, we should not get carried away, because no matter who Samsonov plays with, he's no scorer, he's a playmaker, but he'll entertain me even during boring games, just like Kovalev can, and he'll probably produce at a higher pace than any of Zednik or Bulis could have, so I'm happy.

Samsonov is definitively an improved version of Petrov... Both are little bombs on skate moving very similary.. Samsonov just has more confidence in himself and better hockey sense.

Samsonovs hockey sense isn't better than Petrov's, his skills are. He's faster, has a better variety of better shots, dishes out better passes etc. But Petrov is ahead in the hockey sense compartment.

I don't agree with that at all. If there was one thing Petrov was known for, it was not knowing where he was going on the ice. He would just dispee-doodle like a water bug until he'd paint himself into a corner and watch the play die.

Samsonov has much better anticipation and passing skills (which implies a better hockey sense) than Petrov IMO.

You guys might change your mind on Sammy once you see the first ten turnovers at the blue line. He has nothing on his shots either. Enjoy the skating aspect!

Hopefully this time they'll be at the other team's blueline.
