    I sure hope Mikhnov pans out. The guy appears to be huge with hands and speed on youtube.com

    However, I didn’t see any footage of him having to play too physically, so time will tell how he handles the NHL.

    There is a little bit of a write-up in hockeysfuture on Roy:


    Roy would have to surprise, I would guess, to make the club at the start of this season. I will take as many d-men in the minors as they can get their hands on though.

    These are two great prospects (of many) in the Oiler’s system. I’m very excited to see what these two do this season. I cannot remember when the Oilers ever had such a deep farm system. Now if only they can find a farm team.

    GO OILERS GO!!!!!

    Mikhnov is a future star, and WILL suprise many this year. Expect him to start scoring right away.

    Mikhnov looked better than Oveckin in the world championships, but im not saying he will be as good as Ovechkin, because Oveckin’s sick!

    Hats off to you, Pedro. You called this one in your earlier post.

    I’ve been a fan since he was drafted in 01, my friends gave me a hard time because he disappeared for like 4 yrs. He is to big, and talented not to make it. He also has played on a topline for a good team, in a very good professional league. He is going to be sick, trust me.
