    Default Ruslan Iskhakov

    Drafted in the 2nd round (43rd overall) by the Islanders in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. What are your guys thoughts on him going forward? I've read some comparisons style wise to Johnny Gaudreau but does he have similar upside?

    From what I hear he has really high upside, but not sure how likely it is to expect him to get there. He sounds like one of those raw, pure-skill prospects which I always like to keep an eye on!

    I read Jouko's article, and another one, and hoped to grab him in the last round of my prospect draft this year, but he went slightly before I could grab him.

    I like that he's coming over to play college hockey, will get him used to the rink size, and he should still be able to do his thing before hitting the pros. I have no idea if I really should like that path for a prospect, but it makes sense.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    Ruslan Iskhakov was sent to hospital after being on the recieving end of an open ice hit on Tuesday. Iskhakov was knocked unconscious as a result. I've seen video of the hit and it made me sick. Wish him all the best.
