In the NHL that's an assist for sure. 

As far as I'm concerned he's a definite top 9 NHLer. Whether the production will be there or not is the only debate, he's got the worth ethic & skill to help a winning NHL hockey team. I'm really excited for this kid to come to NA, his work ethic is incredible especially for his age. Can't remember the last bulldog-like player with his talent level.

SKA-Neva beat Toros from Neftekamsk 5-3. Podkolzin with 17:17 of ice time, 4 SOG, no points. He is still with the SKA VHL team on the road trip in Western Siberia.

He kinda plays like Radulov but hopefully sober and hopefully not psychotic.  I'd take a Radulov

Can you imagine if Pod actually developed into a Mark Stone caliber player? That’d be the kind of addition to the young core that could put this team over the top.

Exactly the type of addition we’ll need at the time too. In 2 years we’ll have 3 rock solid young centres, a high end offensive defence man and one 30+ sniper. The hard to get parts are there. A tenacious skilled Russian winger will be just what the doctor ordered. If he hits the ground running and we got a goalie, we’ll beat the wheels off the pacific.

I admittedly haven't watched a ton of podkolzin, but from the clips I've seen and the analysis of his game i've read, the player that sprung immediately to mind for me was marian hossa. does that seem realistic in your mind?

Podz is a lot like Hossa for his hounding of the play, and offensive skills, but Podz has a meanness to him that Hossa didn't.

I'd actually prefer a Hossa.

 

Almost PPG in the regular season, .75 pig in the playoffs, won 3 cups with Chicago but was a huge piece of a Pittsburgh team going to the finals and a year later a Detroit team and then retired to help the hawks out due to a rash.

 

Good guy

Honestly, either one (a Stone or a Hossa) would be an absolute dream result. I loved watching Big Hoss play during his prime, and I’m extremely high on Mark Stone today. I’m not saying Podkolzin is in that category of player (yet) but in terms of pure ceiling, he certainly has the potential to become something very special. Again, the Stone thing wasn’t really a comparison I was trying to push right now, but just replied to another post that dropped the name, and salivated over the idea of us adding that type of player to our current group.

Pods going to be awesome once he’s on the Canucks and is wearing Canuck vintage tri color gloves. VTCGs as everyone says.

I see Podz as a Hansen, but with a much higher ceiling, better hands, and at a much younger age. Honey Badger, meet the Tasmanian Devil :lol:

I think he has elite potential in his skating but that he needs to put a lot of effort in with the right coach to make it happen.

When I watch his highlights he reminds me of Stan Smyl, he never quits, seems like he's everywhere

This might be one of those forwards that brings everything to the net. All his scoring might be in close. Drawing penalties and collecting the garbage.

I like the Hossa comparable.  Hossa was a brilliant 2 way player and Quenville was quoted that his best player was Hossa during the peak of his tenure in Chi town.  

 

Podz does the things that many skilled players leave for others.  

 

That ethic along with his IQ, skill and physical abilities is why he will be a dominant player for us.  

 

Look at Bo, look at Miller.  Podz is in the same mold, but could very well be the best of the 3 when he has transitioned to NA.  

 

Podz has the internal fortitude that we wish Virtannen had.  Put both in a corner, Podz is coming out with the puck 9 out 10 times.

SKA-Neva beat Zvezda, Moscow 3-1. Podkolzin played with Morozov and Savunov (his permanent partner in the national junior team) who are both 19-year old. Vasily with 13:06 of ice time, 1 primary assist, 1 SOG, +1.
