Our Goals

RUSSIAN PROSPECTS' primary goal is to exceed yours, the readers, expectations. We strive to accomplish this by focusing on the following elements:
Speed, Quality, and Value of the information on our site.

We strive to expediently provide the news and tournament coverage and prospect information. We actively involve the readers in this process through our extensive message board style forum, where they are welcome to initiate discussions or ask us questions.

Using our scouts, as well as the extensive number of correspondents, we strive to provide the most accurate and up to date information in our news, tournament coverage and player profiles content. We also offer in depth interviews with some of the brightest NHL prospects, who are still in Russia.

The speed of delivery and accuracy of the information is irrelevant if no one reads it. We strive to provide the information that is of interest to you, our readers. Your input helps us guide the direction of the content on our site.

RUSSIAN PROSPECTS' commitment to these elements is the cornerstone of our aim to provide complete reader satisfaction regarding our coverage of prospects born in the former Soviet Union.
