Reports says he has a style like Alexander Mogilny. He has good puck-handling at high speed with a very good shot

To me in the 2 games I've seen of him, he comes alive when he gets the puck in the offenisve zone. On the downside, he floats in the netural zone and seems to have no clue how to play positional hockey in his own end.

One thing I liked about him was one game where he got hit hard into the boards, he came back and drilled his man with a big time crunch. He got sent to the box but the team was losing 6-2 late in the game, and as a rookie that sent a message to me that he won't take crap or that he doesn't like to be hit hard into the boards.

CSKA. One was against Malkin ('04 prospect) still don't know who the other team is other then they wear green. My Russian stinks, but I'll figure it out. CSKA lost both games, and the best player in both games was jackets prospect Moyzakin who scored 2 unreal goals.

FWIW, a friend who is an agent for a number of NHL and various European league players says Kast's style is very similar to Marian Gaborik.

Thanx. I wish I could watch games of Kastsitsyn with his junior team. I guess they aren't even shown on russian TV though.

If not for his history of having a seizure,many scouts believe this kid would have been taken first overall in last year's entry draft.Even over Nik Zherdev.

IMO he should be along those lines of comparison.Well i'll put it to you this way,he has more offensive talent than Nik Zherdev.

I doubt it, he doesnt have the size. Kovalev can handle 3 guys on his back while making unreal plays, all I,ve read about Kastitsyn is that he needs more bulk.

I think Kastitsyn has the frame, he just needs to fill out.

I have heard he is the type who will make a play with defenders all over him.

How would you compare his style to that of Balej?

Balej's faster but they have a simliar shot and perhaps Balej is more flashy as he has some sick moves, but both can handle the puck at high speed. Neither are that good in their own end, but Balej (who's 3 years older) has shown a lot of improvement in his own end, whereas Kasty reminds me of Ribeiro when he was 19-22 as Ribs just looked lost in his own end.

I don't see his size as a problem. In the RSL he looks big compared to the other players, however in the NHL that will be a different story. But he just turned 19, so he has time to grow.

To me he needs a lot of work in his own end and the biggest problem I saw is that he would float in the netural zone big time.

Well Balej's had 3 more years of development. Kastsistyn in 3 years from now we'll see how much he's improved.

I heard this a million times and I don't believe it anymore...If the seizures effected his performance and production leading up to the draft than maybe you have a case but we've all heard it wasn't a problem.

It didn't affect anything as a matter of fact,i'm not arguing with you there.It was the brass of the top teams that were worried he would suffer from a consistent syndrome.Which had him slide to 10th overall I believe.Mtl made a smart decision in taking this kid.And I am a strong believer that he has more talent than Balej.Hey Habs!Don't forget about Perezhogin.WooHoo.The future will be bright!

Montreal - In your opinion, who would you say is the better prospect, who would you rather have in the Habs farm system...Malkin or Kastistryn?

So what your saying is that kastitsyn's upside is hopefully a joseph balej??
Because if this is the case we were really stupid to trade away balej for kovalev or katstitsyn's upside is not that great.

Kastsitsyn. I've only seen Malkin once in the RSL, so I have very little to off though.

no I didn't say that, I said that Balej has had 3 more years to develop his game then Kasty. Balej is a goal scorer that was weak in his own end, but has improved on that area. Kasty is a pure offensive player that needs improvement in his own end but hasn't had years to work on it.

Kasty in the 2 games I've seen of him is the most skilled offensive prospect I've seen in the Habs organization over the last few years, and I've seen just about all of them at one point or another.
