Tarasenko THIS year?!

Interesting stuff from Tarasenko. Sounds like it's up to his KHL team. But he makes it sound like there's a chance if he pushes enough...

The question that everyone want to ask you: where will you play during the next season?

Tarasenko: I still don't know, my agent is now discussing this with Sibir's staff. It's not clear yet. It's not up to me. This topic is closed for now since I don't know myself what to expect and what all will be.

Is this period hard for you?

Tarasenko: Yes it's very hard. You simply torment yourself. You don't know where you'll be. And get ready for what. If there was a clear way then it would be easier because I'd know what to expect. And correspondingly how to proceed. And even more when you have such a choose: Russia and America. Different countries, different mindsets, different levels of play. It's not easy for me.

When will you have to take a decision?

Tarasenko: I think before the start of Sibir's training camp on July 12th.

But should you have the chance to go overseas already this season, would you be ready for that?

Tarasenko: I am ready!

So in the best case, next season will be your last in Russia?

Tarasenko: Yes. If I'll stay with Sibir then next season will be my last one in Russia. I've said that if I'm going to America I'm not going to repeat Filatov and Tikhonov's experience and get back to Russia because it strongly affects the relationships between you and your club, and generally with the NHL.

TSN mentioned it on their draft coverage, but reading this reaffirms the fact that this kid is hungry to play and succeed in the NHL. Refreshing to hear!

Think about this line for a minute...

Tarasenko (5'11", 202) - Berglund (6'4", 215) - Backes (6'3", 225)

The Janssen signing was more depressing than the Winchester news? I mean at least we know Cam's playing on the 4th line no matter what. Re-signing Winny ate up a potential 3rd line wing spot. To me that's more valuable than Cam's 5 minutes a night skating around like a fool.


Regardless......TARASEKNO!

My thought (hopes) where the Winchester was INSTEAD of Jansen. IF Brad is just chipping in 7 - 9 minutes a game on the fourth line and actually landing checks that Cam often misses and he certianlly has more upside then Cam with his 13 goals two seasons ago.

That said, if you are looking at Brad as a third line player in addition to Cam playing on the 4th line....... :facepalm:
