i have played against kris and ryan for the past 8 years, kris is an very good offensice defensmen, and ryan is a fairly decent offensive forward, it is to bad these 2 guys are so small, there both pretty solid. Kris played on a highly offensive medicine hat team, there is no way i think ryan should have played in the whl thsi year but thanks to the injury of brett sutter, he got some playing time, kris is by far the better of the two. any more info private message me.
While watching the Medicine Hat-Gatineau game, I just realized he was a d-man. I had no idea (even though you mentioned it); I just assumed he was a forward. That makes his 17 points look better, anyway.
The only reason I know about the Russell brothers is because they played in my hometown.
