[RUS] 2004 NHL Entry Draft Talk

RUSSIANS IN 2004 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
June 26, 2004 - Raleigh, North Carolina

Let's talk about Russia's prospects in next June's NHL entry draft.

Post your thoughts about Ovechkin, Malkin and others here!

Here's some useful material to start with : NHL Final Central Scouting Rankings.
Also be sure to visit TSN's NHL draft section.

Personnally I think that Alexander Ovechkin will be drafted in the 1st position by the Capitals who won't give him up for anything in this world. I remember 3 years ago when Kovalchuk entered the draft, people around the NHL were saying that he was the top prospect since Mario Lemieux. But it turns out that Ovechkin looks even better ... and that really scares me!!!

Don't you guys think that Malkin and Ovechkin are too young?

I know that in Kovalchuk's case everything went right, but it wasn't exactly the same story with Chistov and Svitov. I even remember that these 2 were as good as Kovalchuk at the WJC, but it turned out that they were not ready for the NHL, especially Svitov.

the reason why Chistov and Svitov didn't succeed was because they didn't put in a lot of effort, not because they were too young.. although Svitov's game improved after he went to Columbus.. maybe he likes being with Zherdev..

Actually Chistov had a good start too, but his second season for some reason was terrible!!!

No he didn't 1 or 2 points.

He had 1 goal, and 16 assists when he was sent down. But still, 2 goals this season compared to 13 in his rookie campaign. 13 is a good number for a rookie, that's what most good rookies get in their first season (i.e. Hejduk).

I think that he will be drafted because his name is on the NHL CSB ranking (Europe, #17). The link is in the 1st post.

I have seen Parshin listed at 5'9 and under 150 lbs. If that is the case, I have no idea how he could be rated so high.

Yeah but if he enters the draft now, he'll play in 3 years.

CSKA's site has him at 5'9, 137 pounds.

I wouldn't be surprised if he opts out just to get bigger.

Because if he were 6-0, he would be Top 5 pick easily. Terrific player to watch.

He is very very small. 5'9 is about what he is. He won't get any taller.

Young, offensively-gifted players are often allowed to do their own thing when they break into the league, but by their 2nd year the coaches are really turning the screws to turn them into better 2-way players. If they're streaky scorers the pressure is really great to play solid defensively if they go into a slump. It's a very difficult adjustment because it doesn't come naturally. Saprykin seems to have made it and I think Afinogenov is on the cusp of making it. I think that's all that's going on with Chistov and it's only a matter of time before he makes his mark in the NHL.

That's a very good point and makes very good sense.

I have no idea since I've never seen him play ... but isn't he too young? But if he's ranked so high, then he's ready, right?

So I *says* Malkin is ready!

According to Kyle Woodlief, Denis Parshin has chosen to opt for the draft.
