Hello Tampa Bay fans, I'm a hockey fan from Chelyabinsk, Russia. On the first of May it became official that one of the leaders of Chelyabinsk local team Nikita Nesterov signed the contract in NHL. For us it's a big loss, because he is so talented, so stable and so experienced despite his young age. During playoffs he even played in the center and played decently. That's why it's interesting for me to know, what do you know about Nikita Nesterov? Have you watched WJC where he was one of the leaders? Do you expect him to play in NHL or you suppose he should go through AHL? Can you compare him to someone in Tampa or NHL? (To my mind, his case is comparable with Vyacheslav Voynov as he is from Chelyabinsk too, the style of play is different but their careers developed very similarly; also maybe we can compare Nesterov with Victor Hedman, what do you think?)
Of course, you are free to ask me, as I know about Nesterov a lot and may tell you something about him.
