Evgeny Kuznetsov and CapsFans' attitude to him



I’ll start with small introduction. I live in Russia, in Chelyabinsk – the city, where Evgeny Kuznetsov plays. At the same time, I’m working as a journalist and my specialization is foreign press and fans’ opinion. That’s why I want to know what you think about rising Russian star.

First of all, does anyone follow him at KHL? Maybe, somebody even watches KHL playoffs and final against former Ovi team “Dynamo”.

Secondly, what reputation does he have among Capitals fans? For example, I often read comments at the blog Russian Machine Nevere Breaks, and there are more than enough bad and aggressive comments towards Kuznetsov. Is the general picture the same?

Thirdly, recently Washington acquired Martin Erat and gave up Filip Forsberg. Before that George McPhee gave really big interview on prospects: Forsberg and Kuznetsov. Can you compare them? Who do you think is better? Besides, would you trade Kuz to Nashville instead of Forsberg?

Finally, do you believe that he will come to Washington for 2014-2015 season? Has your attitude towards Russians changed? And what can you say about Russian factor?

You are welcome, and I will be really happy to read your responses.
