Vasily almost scored another goal with his power drive to the net

 

Now that he's finally putting up the points I am genuinely excited to come read this thread.

Kind of exciting to think of him alongside a pair of fantabulous goal scorers!  I can see a theme of Podz stripping the puck off an unsuspecting dman and then making one of his excellent passes to Pete or JT.  The hardest part of all will be having the patience to allow him to develop into a huge asset to the team; offensively, defensively, physically and character.

Just a little over a year away from him driving the net, stripping the pucks, and no look saucer passes for our team.  His skill sets will really be a welcome addition.  He's going to be a big upgrade on Motte/Beagle type... More skill with elite non stop motor.  Gonna be rad!

Not a coincidence that as Podz gets more reps, he gets more chances and his timing, his playmaking start to emerge and look good.  

 

Give this guy 15-20  minutes a night and I see him being a top six level producer.

Pretty excited about this player.  But my expectations are a little higher I see him being a potential upgrade on the Pearson/Virtanen types.

A question...

 

Do you think someone like him or Try are actively learning English with tutors/teachers/etc?

 

Obviously, thats a huge advantage and a need short and long term for success in the NHL/a canadian market/with his future teammates.

 

Thanks for any responses!

Absolutely. I'm sure Groot already has it down though.

Assuming because we don't have to hear about his poor development in the KHL anymore.

Podz is taking English lessons; not sure about Tryamkin.

That description does not do that play justice.

 

Not only does he absolutely pick that D mans pocket he makes a no look backhand saucer pass right on his teammates stick. :shock:

He played like this in the world junior as well, the difference was the players he passed to couldn't bury it, so less spotlighted. The tenacious forecheck/backcheck is signature to his game. Nice to see that he's getting rewarded now.

thats actually a bit of a stunner, shows you how hard it is for kids U19 to get ice time and chances in the KHL.

Looks like there are about 10 games left for SKA before playoffs. Would love to see Podkolzin finish those last 10 with 5 additional points or so. 

It's kinda weird... The leading goal scorer for SKA only has 13 goals. Jori Lehtera. 

Looks like SKA will play either Torpedo, or Spartak in the 1st round of KHL playoffs.
