|Assets:||Profiles as a classic Russian right wing: A left-handed shooter with excellent shiftiness, stickhandling skills and the ability to finish. Can really dangle and likes the spotlight. Is supremely confident in his ability to produce offense.|
|Flaws:||Lacks intensity on a consistent basis and is occasionally prone to hiccups in his own end. Doesn't have enough desire to be the best he can be at the highest level (NHL). Also lacks discipline, on and off the ice.|
|Career Potential:||Supremely skilled, yet mercurial scoring winger.|
