Just get OEL now, and we'll have him, Goncharov, Stone and Summers all taking a step into the pros next year. Oh.. and Brodeur

On second thought. Maybe this is why OEL hasn't been signed yet. Too many D prospects coming at the same time? Maybe DM wants one more year in Sweden for OEL, who knows?

OEL has been signed, they are just working out the details and getting league approval.

Goncharov and OEL are a clear step ahead of Summers, Stone etc...

They both could potentially play in the NHL next year. Is that right for the development? Remains to be seen.

Of defenseman with legitimate NHL experience (the Schlemkos and Heshkas of the world thereby excluded), the Coyotes have only Jovanovski, Yandle, Vandermeer and Sauer signed through next year. Whether Sauer can play is anybody's guess (and most of those anybodies are guessing "no") and it would make sense for the Coyotes to move Vandermeer in exchange for a defenseman whose salary is commensurate with what he provides (or at least to open up a spot for such a defenseman).

I would be happy to see the Coyotes bring back any or all of Aucoin, Morris, Lepisto and Michalek, and it's highly unlikely that all four will walk. But I'd say it's just as unlikely that all four are brought back. There will likely be a spot on the opening day roster held by one of Goncharov, Ekman-Larsson, Summer, et al, though I'm also guessing Maloney will hedge with a veteran who can fill in should whichever aforementioned rookie who makes the team can't pull his weight.

If/when OEL signs, I think its between OEL and Goncharov for the final roster spot, I think playing professionally already gives them a leg up on Summers.

We have Yandle/Jovo and then Vandermeer's contract who GMDM should unload at the draft (not including Sauer, I think he's along the lines of "if it hasn't happened by now, its never going to" syndrome)

I think in camp, OEL wins the job and we get

Z/Jovo
DeMo/Yandle
Lepisto/OEL

its too bad Lepisto isn't a righty to get the full compliment of Lefty/Righty combo on all three lines. In 2011-2012 we'll get:

Z/Yandle
DeMo/OEL
Lepisto/Goncharov

I'm really hoping that OEL is everything we've seen at World Jr's and more...along w/Goncharov, although not as highly touted, but a much bigger shot fromt he point.

He's the complete package

- Size at 6'4 and between 210-220lbs (He looks big on the ice, can't find a solid source on the weight)
- Not afraid to throw hits... works the corners, boards and in front of the net hard.
- Intellegent break out pass, so crisp
- Defensivly very intelligent
- Smaller ice surface in the NHL... his shot is quickly going to become very scarey... opposing teams will create PK schemes based around stopping it.
- I think he is a very mobile skater

Mckeens calls him a Gonchar-Malakhov hybrid in the making... From what I've saw of him the last two years I'd have a tough time disagreeing

His KHL page from this season has him at 92kg. So roughly 200lbs. I don't know if that's from the beginning of last season?

I didn't know he was that big. That is just what we need. I thought I saw him listed at 6' even. So he and Stone are two big bodies on the horizon and Anhelov is good size. I'd still love to see DM swap Jovo's contract for a #1 center or winger (Vinny!). I'd rather go another year with DeMo and Aucoin with some added offense than have Jovo with the same offense we ran out this year.

That is wrong, he was already 6'3 and 205lbs two years ago at the WJC.

Name: Maxim Goncharov
Position: D
Shoots: Right
Height: 6-3
Weight: 190 lbs
Birthdate: 1989-06-15
Eligible for Draft: 2007
Drafted: 2007
Hometown: Ufa, Russia
Acquired: 5th round (123rd overall), 2007
Playing In: Europe
Maxim Goncharov
Prospect Grade: 7.0 D (About Prospect Grades)
Profile Contributed By: HF Staff

History

2006-07: Played with CSKA in the RSL. Was pointless in 19 games and took 19 penalty minutes. He also starred for the Russians at the U18 tournament in Finland and was again, pointless in seven appearances.

2007-08: Played in his first full season with CSKA Moscow in the RSL. Posted six points (3 goals, 2 assists) in 47 games played.


Talent Analysis
Goncharov is a two-way defenseman who many believe has some offensive upside to his game. He’s a good skater and doesn’t shy away from the play. He plays with an edge and likes to get physical but overdoes it sometimes. He’s another prospect who is going to have to show more drive and determination.

Would Konstantinov be a good description? Obviously I like your comparison better but that's kind of what he reminded me of.

Goncharov I don't think will develop the nasty streak Konstantinov had. Konstantinov was a SOB on the ice

I wouldn't touch Vinny's contract with a ten foot pole. He's thirty years old. He's been declining for three straight seasons(production-wise), hasn't been a point per game player in some time, and is owed SIXTY million dollars over the next six years.

no thanks

Goncharov and Oliver Ekman-Larsson are neck and neck when it comes to my favorite defensive prospects of the world, and we have both of them I'm so stoked for the future

Yep he will, there was an interview I read where he said should he need to adjust to the NA game in the AHL, it would not be an issue

Goncharov has an absolute CANNON of a shot. And he LOVES to use it. His one timer is a thing of beauty and an instant powerplay weapon.

Outside of the nasty streak, what about everything else? I felt like Vladimir was very underrated in moving the puck.

I would be scared that he plays in the SE division as well.
