    Default Evgeny Kuznetsov

    Kuz was asked directly about 20 minutes ago whether or not he was going to play for the Caps this season. He said yes! So what's everyone's thoughts on this? Is this someone we should target in keeper leagues?

    Yeah, without a doubt. Serious upside, think Kovalchuk if he can put it all together. There have been some bumps along the way, but Kuznetsov has significant upside and he should be in a situation with very talented offensive players around him in WSH. Now isn't exactly the best time to invest, but it's better late than never.

    I think you should be looking to buy him, but don't be a bit surprised if his current owner isn't well aware of this info as well and probably will want a kings ransom for him. You're chance to buy low on him (with the doubt of him coming to NHL or not) is probably well sailed past by now.

    Not close to kovalchuk in yes of talent. More hype than reality is what he has always brought to the table, I wouldn't buy him right now.

    Not yet listed in Yahoo either...unless I'm missing something.

    But as a free add (if he's available on the wire in a league), why not?

    ive been hanging on to him for a long while now and i cant wait.
    i think he's been pretty honest with the caps in letting them know he was staying in the khl. he signed 2 years and he stuck to it. gotta think if and when he signs with the caps he will stick to it too. i just cant see him screwing with the caps like radulove did with nashville.
    plus playing with ovi has to be encouraging.

    Depending on the price he is obviously someone who should be targeted. Although I think you may have missed the boat here. He has been saying for 2 years that he was going to come over precisely at this time so I doubt anyone who has kept him for those two years+ is going to move him now. I certainly wouldn't trade him for less than an huge over payment now. He has huge upside and anyone telling you different is just wrong. What's not to like big and extremely skilled and probably going to step right in and play with the best pure goal scorer the NHL has seen in maybe 20 years.

    I agree with this. Can't wait to see what he can do with the Caps.

    If he comes over to Caps this season, it'll be interesting to see how he adapts to the North American-style game on a very inconsistent Caps squad. Lots of hype around him and he's been billed as an all-world talent...so intrigued by his long-awaited arrival. Hard to get a read on a guy unless you've watched a lot of KHL games the last couple years so....with most things it depends on the price it would take to acquire him, whether it's worth the risk or not.

    Kuz plays center, correct? The Capitals desperately need someone to man their 2nd line.

    Kuznetsov plays both C/RW. He could play with Ovie (their center position is really lacking in terms of creation of offence), but who knows where he will play. Don't listen to Big Ev, although I wouldn't go out and pay a fortune for a guy who appears to have a some attitude issues, he's definitely worth a grab in any type of league. His upside is real (skill and ability are as good as any) but it's whether or not he has the capacity to put it together in the nhl. Big Ev also said that Jacob Trouba has no offensive ability, so I wouldn't take his statements as gospel.

    Yeah don't listen to me even though Kuznetsov is a RW and everyone with knowledge of him knows this. This reminds me of the people who thought Strome would play with Tavares. Even if Kuznetsov played centre he wouldn't displace Backstrom ever.

    Yes, I really said Jacob Trouba had no offensive ability, right. Way to twist words around. I said Wiercioch's offensive game is better which I still would say.

    Saying Kuznetsov's skill is as good as anybody's is such a reach. The guy has floundered the last two years in the KHL and is nothing but hype at the moment.

    He is worth a grab for sure if you can get him for nothing, but I wouldn't be trading anybody decent for him who is already in the league.
