True, we kind of had the same history with a bunch of disappointing Sweds before Bratt, too, though…

And I think they might have something in Okhotiuk.

But to be clear I was half joking. I don’t think anyone expects Gritsyuk to be the next Kaprizov. But if he has to take his time getting over here it could be worth it if he’s an immediate impact player once he does. 

I’m pretty high on Okhotyiuk.  I could see him paired with Luke in a couple years.  Okhotyiuk kicking ass and Luke racking up points with the top line with Jack as center.

This is correct, he’s played two seasons and is 25 now. Following that path, Gritsyuk (who would have been “Gritty” if that name wasn’t already taken) would arrive in 2 years. 

Well, as long as you don't call him Sucky then.

That’s gonna depend on his performance, not gonna lie…

To be fair, Gusev wasn’t home grown. We traded for him. 

I sorta lumped him in the “prospect” thing, since he didn’t really have his cup of coffee in the NHL yet when we acquired him.

Bardakov won't be coming over any time soon. Which is fine as he needs established minutes and a bigger role as he only featured in 19 regular season games. He played in all of SKA's 16 playoff games so hopefully he will take a step next year.

Bardakov did start as 13th forward, but going through the season he played more minutes. In the playoff he started to play regular role, in the final of conference he played in all 7 games against CSKA more than 16/17 minutes. 

He isn't potential top 6 forward  but he looks and developing exactly like potential good bottom six forward. He did play defensive energy role in SKA, and if he will continue to play regular role there, its a perfect place for development.

We all know what he does well,” the GM said with a chuckle, “we don’t have anybody in the organization who shoots the puck like him, and he has very good vision. Where we need to see some development is his first couple of steps, his anticipation. Again, be stronger on pucks along the wall. This season couldn’t have gone any better for Alex Holtz in my eyes.

I think they understand correctly what he should work on.

It certainly feels like the current front office have a much better grasp on our prospects and seem to be handling them much better than we have in a long time.

Not the right thread, but I think we need another "insurance" goalie. lost faith in Blackie (not because of his skill) but his work ethic. Will Bernier be ready to train/play. Will he be the same? I like the idea of Primeau, maybe Stolarz? (reasonable trade) We can't go in with Hammond et all.

Any suggestions of someone reasonable  to target. Sh>t rolls downhill, our goaltending was huge part in out win/loss record.  Soft goals kill a bench. Players know it.

I’ve been interested in Stolarz or Dostal from Anaheim as a 3rd option.

A slightly more established possibility is Raanta. He only has 2 years left and Carolina has Andersen. He isn’t gonna win us a cup but he’d be a suitable replacement for Bernier while we wait to see what Blackwood is next year. I really don’t see how Bernier is ready for October

His "work ethic"?  

Please explain

I don’t know, I’m pretty antti Raanta. 


I see what you did there.

I’m just thinking of attainable players assuming no big free agents are available.  He’s part of a team with depth and has a short amount on his contract.

Yeah I don't mind him, I just don't pass on dad joke opportunities.
