Thoughts on Vladimir Tarasenko?

37 posts in this topic

I really like what I see in this kid. He is really talented and so far no other rookie has stand out as much as he has. He has 5 points in 2 games now and each of those points were well earned. I definitely think he will win the Calder trophy this year and and get around 50-60 points for the blues. Last rookies in the first NHL season that averaged a PPG and over were Crosby, Malkin and Ovechkin. I think Tarasenko will do so this year. His play reminds me of Malkin. Your thoughts?

He's got phenomenal talent, we'll just have to wait and see how much consistency he can play with.

Lets trade the entire 2012-2013 Vancouver Canucks roster for Tarasenko. He's all we need to be happy.

Ballard + Raymond and a 1st = Tarasenko

He's had a couple of years to develop in the KHL, 2010 draft pick. It helps quite a bit as opposed to coming in as a raw rookie.

This kid is going to be great. Smassian is really high on him as am I but I thought he wold be held back in Hitchcock's trap system. So far pretty darn good.

STL has been waiting for this guy and it looks like he was worth the wait.

Got him in both my pools haha.

Tarasenko is sick, Kuznetsov is going to kill it with Ovechkin when he comes over too.

I predicted this guy to win the Calder prior to the lockout, no surprise to me he is playing this well, I knew he had it all along.
