    Does anyone think Russell can be fantasy relevant in a points only league since his signing in Calgary. I think he'll have a shot at 2nd PP and could produce if played in the right role.

    Can he put up 30 pts this season?

    I'm torn between him and Cundari. I think one wins and one loses but just can't decide which one. Any help is appreciated.

    I've been a KR fan for a while, and have always held out hope for this kid to come through, but he just hasn't yet. A 30pnt season shouldn't be that difficult to obtain, but it'll take every game to do it.

    His plus-minus will not be that awesome either this year me thinks.

    PP2 (possibly some sporadic PP1) time he will see, but I wouldn't expect many points from it.

    If I owned Kris Russell I'd just be happy if he could play close to a full season and put up 25-30 points. That would be some development.

    My draft is Wed. and Cundari was going to be my sleeper pick with hopes of him making Calgary and putting up 20+pts this year and hopefully progressing from there. The Russell signing has screwed my confidence in Cundari.

    I owned Russell once before and was burned by his lack of production, so I guess I'm little hesitant to own him again. I really thought he would produce because Hitchcock really liked him in Columbus and traded for him when he went to St. Louis.

    He put up good points this fall with TPS Turku ( 14pts/15gms ) but wow 7pts/33gms with St.Louis this spring sucks. I can't decide if it was lack of opportunity or if it's a case of him never living up to expectations.

    Thanks guys. I think I'll wait tol see how he does once the season starts if he's still on the waiver wire.

    Does anyone think Cundari can get points with Calgary?

    Dobber prospect report has him as a "great darkhorse" and a decent "final round pick." Your league must be incredibly deep if you are considering taking him, though.

    I would expect Wideman/Giordano/Brodie to get the bulk of PP time. Then Russell...then Cundari.
