How far away do you guys think Zakharov is from being NHL ready? 3-4 years?
Im not sure. He had a good camp for the blues before getting injured. And he is pretty big for a 19yo. He said his goal is to be professional next season, but i can see him making the blues out of camp. Unless he has an extremely good camp. Or there is a major shakeup on the blues roster. It just isnt the blues style to play that young of guys. So probably 2-3 years. That would be my guess.
Edit: we can edit our posts again, so i updated the original post.
