I guess hes rumored to be on the block. hes only 20 and i know that story with the russian players, but this guy has a HUGE upside. Idk what It would take to land him. Rumor has CBJ talking with vancouver about Bieska. Bieska woukld be another guy tat could help if we moved girardi or staal in an iggy deal. and Vancouver has like 38 defensemen i think.

I wouldn't say he'd be an instant numbers with Gaborik, its not like they don't have Rick Nash for him to play with. Agree another Z.

no thanks on any of these russian players they for the most part have horrible work ethics & are to easily intimidated.

I don't think of him

Columbus is not going to trade him away, they just got a new coach who is not so defensive oriented and Filatov will be making the team this year and he will probably put up 60-70 points and thats not playing with Gaborik or maybe not even on the same line as Nash. Hes that good.
