I really, really hope Goncharov wants to come to NA.

He could be an impact dman.

Treliving spoke very highly of him on Saturday afternoon, appears the organization is really looking forward to gettin him here (too bad he's got another year on his Russian contract) he will make another great addition w/ Ahnelov appearing to be ready too.

Judging by the write up on AzCentral we can expect Goncharov to be named our Top Prospect in the 2009 THN Future Watch. He's the legitimate point threat we have been looking for from our point for the PP and an absolute steal for a 5th round pick.

Top 10 according to Jim Gintonio
1) D Goncharov
2) LW MacLean
3) D Summers
4) D Ahnelov
5) RW Kolarik
6) D Stone
7) D Ross
8) D Brodeur
9) G Tjordman
10) RW Staal

If we don't make the playoffs I wonder if there is any chance Summers will join the team when his season ends a la Turris last year? After reading RT's man-crush on him I'd be curious to see him live.

I won't call it a man crush but I can't wait to see Goncharov and Summers in our lineup. I can't decide who I like better.

Edit: Not a bad piece but Goncharov's gotta be in there somewhere near the top.

I don't have a link but I vaguely remember some discussion earlier that Goncharov was headed here for next season (Jeff can likely confirm).

KHL isn't a long-term serious threat. Simply put, players are not getting paid what they signed for. The reason? The Russian economy and the league is bankrolled by Russian Oil money (and the mafia depending on what you read) and with Oil trading at $40/barrel versus $140/barrel earlier this year you can expect that there will be more defections and more talk of a transfer agreement with the NHL. With Russian population expected to decline by nearly one-third over the next 20 years you can expect that things are going to get worse for the KHL.

We had an economist as a guest speaker at a conference I attended in Florida. He was advising everyone not to invest in Russia on the basis of the early life expectancy due largely in part to wide spread alcoholism. Essentially the population is projected to decrease from 150 million to 100 million people.

I just did a very quick google search for demographic trends and Russian and came up with this supporting document.

Well I know they are very high on him. As far as getting him over here, that might prove to be challenging. If I were one to argue, I would say - seeing Goncharov has a contract through the 09-10 season - that you could easily say its voided if the club has not compensated him as agreed upon. That's just me. If you're not meeting the terms of a legal binding contract, then what good is it? But the other thing is that it's in Russia and they tend to subscribe their own sort rules.

Forget the playoffs, I think Summers is better than Hale, right now. Certainly more usefull, anyhow. However, the same is probably true of Schlemko and Ahnelov, as well. After all, it's not really saying much.

I to am very excited for Goncharov. Watched him at the WJC's and the guy reminded me a ton of Shea Weber. Physical, good passing, big booming one timer, and solid positioning. Not to mention he can throw them pretty decently as well. I like his competitiveness, always seemed like he wanted to carry his team by picking up his play when it mattered.

He's completely off your radar right now, but Brett Hextall has a chance to play in the NHL one day. He's not flashy, but his hands, hockey sense and vision are better than you think. He came to UND advertised as a scrapper and a grinder, but he also consistently makes plays. You won't see him there (in the NHL) for years, but I think he might gradually work his way onto your prospect list.

i've seen mathieu brodeur play maybe 4-5 times this year and i have to say he's going to need some work. alot of work.

he towers over almost everyone else on the ice but for such a big guy, man he gets manhandled out there. maybe it's cause he has a big target on him due to his size, but he gets rocked 3-4 times a night. he also gets burned to the outside nearly every time a forechcker is coming in with speed. he's not real slow either, he's just not very good moving laterally if the forward is being shifty. right now his only options are to back in quick enough that the guy has to cut to the middle, and screen the goalie in the process, or take a penalty by holding or hooking the guy when he cuts to the outside. he's not very physical, but rather tries to use his reach to break up plays.

he does have a good shot and a good first pass though, i'll give him that.

If you have a sports package through your cable provider....and get Fox Sports Northwest....Spokane and Vancouver are playing tonight. Chance to see some good draft eligible prospects as well as Nick Ross.

Caught the first 5 mins of the Vancouver Giants game last night and Ross had a assist and a huge open ice hit in that span.

Sean Keogh, one of the contributors on my blog, was able to catch Sudbury in action this weekend. Here are his thoughts on Jared Staal.

"From a game review standpoint, Staal actually fared well this afternoon. He set up the first Sudbury goal and potted the second, although John Kurtz did most of the work. Moreover, he finished even in a near blow out game, so it was a decent game for Jared. I have to be honest though I was not overly impressed with him from an NHL scouting standpoint. In many ways Jared reminds me of his brother Marc more than Jordan or Eric, in his skating stride and lack of offensive creativity. Although Jared goes to the net and has the size to put up some points by doing so, he is neither dynamic nor particularly inventive offensively. In short, I am not sure I see anything that suggests Staal has scoring line upside at the NHL level, although he shows characteristics that make it likely he will get a solid chance to stick as a role player in due time."

Krysanov's team, Lada Togliatti, has just been eliminated by Goncharov's CSKA 3-2 in the playoffs' first round. Krysanov got a puck in the face during the last game and quit the match without being re-iced. Krysanov played a not bad series despite having only 1 assist in 5 matches, but the series was low-scoring, actually Lada's top scorers had just 2 points. Goncharov has been left scoreless, but has been iced in different key powerplay situation (relying on his big shot...)
