    Kravtsov named captain, he'll be captain for WJC, too, I assume.

    Wow. I'm guessing but I would think Czechs missing Major Junior guys?

    Anyways, cool of them to re-create the lighting in the rink from '72 Summit Series.

    I think he was playing Center, that's good we need that 8th
    aspiring center man to round out the roster.

    Could be good for his development, as he wont have that space on the wings in the NHL, as he does in the K

    I'll take another 1C, how's his D?

    How long have you been a Ranger fan to complain about too many 1C's?

    You need one before you have too many.

    Kravtsov scores a very nice goal yesterday, he's pretty good as a triggerman off the right wing, which we don't have at all.

    He'll be leading Traktor in scoring, probably by Xmas. Numbers are starting to look really impressive vs. his peers at that age.

    Oliver Wahlstrom? From the looks of it he's a liability in a men's amateur league that he also doesn't produce much offence in. Had we chose Wahlstrom we'd be pretty despondant at this point.

    Kravtsov is the real deal.
    Wahlstrom is just a chubby frat boy who dined off Jack Hughes service.


    not really

    Yeah, as of today, it looks like they got this one right.

    Jeez you would have thought the sky was falling when they didn't pick Wahlstrom a few months ago...

    I never understood how fans who don't watch any of these kids play with regularity could possibly have such strong opinions about them.

    I hope Kravtsov turns out well for us but we just won't know for a number of years.

    Well, that's a misnomer. Fans who DO watch these kids play were driving that bus. Wahlstrom looked like the real deal.

    I loved the pick and I had heated discussions with many on here when it happened. Admittedly I didnt watch him in many games but I knew he was a very fast riser similar to chytil and he tore it up in the playoffs when given more icetime. Was never a fan of Wahlstrom. Yes has potential as a goal scorer but many have said he has a low motor which is never a great sign

    If someone said they watched NCAA hockey as much as KHL hockey I'd have to call bullshit. And if they are, it's a handful of games per season.

    Things that don't tell the whole story:
    - Alex Nunn tweets
    - Condensed games
    - Highlights

    I was favoring Wahlstrom because the chances were it'd be easier to get him here sooner. We don't exactly have a great history with Russians. Even at the draft, he seemed more like a lock, and we seemed to have over-valued LyinAss Medalthrower.
