Ovechkin is still human and can be taken out of a game by freight train bodychecks. I remember some games vs the Caps where Komisarek would play really well and seriously work over Ovechkin all night, he would be a non-factor.

Komi playing well against Ovie and matched his foot speed, you must be talking about a different player.

We've had some stellar defensive performances (Subban, Price, Theodore even Hainsey was good at the WJC) but for forwards, not so much.

I like his speed and escapability. He has a terrific shot and goes to the front of the net. He's responsible defensively, kills penalties, and seems to have all round skills. I think the "selfish," puckhog tag that some posters apply to him is so over-bearingly wrong that you can now call his playmaking skills under-rated. He's a shooter/scorer who wants the puck on his stick but he doesn't waste shots by shooting from horrible angles like Jason Blake does.

His shot seems really accurate, sort of like Jason Pominville. He has a great release. His shoot-out goal reminded me of Cammalleri's wrister. Both Pominville and Cammy were second round draft picks. I think Kristo could develop along those lines.

Cammy by the way spent 3 years at Michigan. His first two pro years were split between L.A. and Manchester. His third pro year was the lock-out year so he was in the AHL full-time.

Pominville had a 3 year junior career in the Q. Spent three full seasons with Rochester and began his 4th year of pro in the AHL before finally graduating a quarter of the way through the season.

I expect Kristo to follow a similar path. I expect he'll play a minimum of 2 seasons with ND, and then spend a minimum of two years in the AHL, so we're not going to see him for another three years. He's a good prospect though. By the time he's ready for the NHL Cammy and Gionta's contracts will be close to done, so the timing is good too.
Perezhogin had a great tournament with Grigorenko, I would say they are on par, both have\had great linemates too.. But you can see Kristo is the type of player making things happen by his own..

I think the same thing about D'Amigo (a leafs prospect if Im not wrong), this kid should become a pretty good second line winger in the NHL as well..

Every time that they show Kristo's face in this tournament, I kept telling myself that he looks exactly like some other player but I couldn't quite put my finger on who. It just hit me now that he looks a lot like Ales Hemsky.

Kristo is an interesting prospect. He was drafted as a smart, well rounded player, and you can see that in him today. But I just don't see anything about him that jumps out to me other than his speed.

Yeah, if he keeps toe draggin like that he'll be a bit of a one trick pony who won't be able to do that in the pros.

What do Habs fans think of Jerry D'Amigo and his chemistry with Kristo?

I've been very impressed with D'Amigo, he's not only skilled, but he looks like a really smart player. In comparison to Kristo, he seems to be a more complete player on both sides of the ice. As for their chemistry, they better enjoy tomorrow, because it'll probably be their last game playing together for a looooong time.

Don't quite agree. Kristo was all over the ice last night, backchecked, played deep in defensive zone and played the point on PP. D'Amigo seems to be a more unidimensional speed sniper guy.

I would have said that about Kristo actually..lol, but we'll see. I really love Kristo's skill set, but will have to watch him more to get a better read on him..

I've been very impressed with this kid, and I think he'll be a damn good player.

My only complaint is that he's a little selfish and he needs to learn how to make better use of his linemates.

The kid LOVES to shoot, and you can tell he always wants the puck. In some ways though, that can work out to our advantage.

A team need a few "selfish" players in the lineup, and by selfish I mean guys who shoot more and pass less.

Count of Monte Kristo is very skilled. You can tell by his vision and his hands. He also has great speed. However, in the corners and on the wall he gets easily manhandled. He needs to put on at least 15 pounds of muscle.

That's how I feel about him also. He is still growing and here is hoping that in 3 to 4 years he'll be mature both skillwise and bodywise.

Let's try to compare Kristo for fun, for possible upside-downside, based on the little I saw :


Very big upside : Phil Kessel
Upside : Brian Gionta
Downside : Jim Cambell or Jim Dowd
Very big downside : Serge Boisvert or career AHLer or career Eropeen leaguer.

Yeah, he'll have to get past the voice cracking phase before doing this with real men.

I wonder if he made the chant up.
