With most of the North American hockey audience tuned into the playoffs, the IIHF World Hockey Championships have been going on in Moscow. There are many usual faces, like Eric Staal, Shane Doan, and Marian Gaborik, as well as some lesser-known players.
Russian League superstar and former Penguin Aleksey Morozov has been tearing up the tournament and is a definite guy to keep an eye on, like Dobber has mentioned before. He has top line talent but the question remains if there is a team out there that is willing to match what he wants (rumored to be in excess of four million tax free dollars in Russia). Still, get him in any league you can. The ultimate boom or bust pick, as he could put up zero to 90 points.
Anton Stralman – defense, Sweden. He has been an absolute rock for Sweden and has star potential on the NHL. The Leafs hold his rights and look for him to make a splash very soon. He may need to bulk up a bit but has NHL level skill and vision already. Won’t be an unknown for long.
