Thanks for the rundown...and now it sounds like he should be ready to go within a season or so...given his age and skills...maybe he can turn Goldie into the sniper we were hoping for and they can come up together to join Tryamkin on what could become a top 4 D corp in that same time frame.

 

At the very least he gives us some skill depth at center and left wing and effectively replaces Madden on the depth chart.

Well, he’s pretty fashion forward, so who knows? Could be that gender bending, fungus-based clothing is the latest menswear trend on the streets of Moscow.

This guy is very, very intriguing.

On the verge of 25, he's already fully matured.

Haven't seen anything of him but, it seems he's a great offensive producer and his two way game, apparently, makes him a great possibility as a penalty killer.

To get a player without having to give up anything is always good but this guy seems to have slipped through some cracks

I'm wondering why.

I'm guessing but it probably had something to do with the fact that he was playing in Germany, on a Under 18 team in his first draft eligible season and was likely a pretty small player. He was a real offensive force in that league but never did much in International competition, didn't have an exceptional season at all in his 1st season in North America but became a real standout for all 4 years in college. I don't know if any team had tried to get him to leave college early or if he just wanted to get his degree.

Interesting Jimbo indicated he sees Marc as a penalty kill specialist. It also sounds like Marc is a person of character which is a characteristic the Canucks value.

My guess is that Benning sees him as a Motte replacement then.  He's most certainly not as physical as Motte, but started off his first two years of NCAA scoring at a much better rate that Motte.  Motte finally caught and surpassed Michaelis in scoring by his third and final NCAA year, but this might have been due to being on a stronger team.  Looks like a 4th line upgrade to me.
