Perezohgin is not even at Balej level yet ... And Hossa is a lazy dude .
Well actually he's way above Balej's level. Don't look at Balej this year and compare Perezhogin. Perezhogin is 2 years younger and didn't have the comfort of USHL/WHL time to adapt to North America. So Perezhogin in his rookie year is having a much better rookie season then Balej who had 20 pts (5 goals) in his first year. While both played for a deep team that scores lots of goals, Perezhogin has fared better in his fist year. Tough to say if Perezhogin can have the sophmore season Balej has had, but if your going to compare the 2, compare them on a level ground.
this thread is pretty bad i mean how could anyone think of messing up this teams chimistry for unproven minor league prospects,the thought is just absurd.
I'm agree with you on that one but also don't be too rude with the original poster. He was just thinking and trying to share his questioning. The main thing is logic and patience. When his time will come, Perezhogin will come here. Same with Higgins, Kats, Hainsey, O'Byrn, Urquart and Hossa: WHEN ready. We already have a nice roster, pieces of puzzle should fit on place at the right time. Have a nice day, enjoy Kovalev guys.
