Russian Player Pefromance Evaluations Part 5: Anton Glovatsky, Artem Anisimov,
Anton Glavatsky, RW (2006 NHL Entry Draft Eligible)
Played a finesse style in the opener against Germany .. the flashy waterbug could
take advantage of his speed, but showed that the Germans could get under his skin
when they played his body .. his traffic play was an issue with him all tournament
long .. bounced back with a slightly better game against Czech Republic, but was
overshadowed by Vadim Golubtsov in the role of the flashy speedster .. didn't
show a significant commitment to defense and floated on the periphery .. his SKAting
skills were evident in the final game against Slovakia, but was hurt on the defensive
side .. didn't perform in the slot as often as needed which cost his team possible
goals off rebounds.
Artem Anisimov, C (2006 NHL Entry Draft Eligible)
Didn't meet the expectations of bouncing back put on him after the average showing
at the tournament in August despite leading Russia in assists (3 assists) ..
couldn't stand out in any of the three games and turned out to be a sleepwalking
forward .. filled the defensive duties conscientiously in the opener against
Germany, but the rest of his game was missing .. couldn't think the game fast
enough to be effective in the contest against Czech Republic despite getting
secondary assists on Alexander Vasyunov goals .. showed only a few shifts where
he would dish out a smart accurate pass and faded .. couldn't catch the pace
of the final contest against Slovakia and failed to keep his feet moving ..
hardly made any noticeable use of his size .. didn't crash the net as needed
and often ended up in the corner .. would be a complete bust at the tournament
if it wasn't for his solid defensive awareness.
Ilya Kablukov, C (2006 NHL Entry Draft Eligible)
Showed a gangly stride and was hurt by a lack of elite top-end speed in the
opening game against Germany .. focused on filling a playmaking role and was
always looking for the open teammate .. didn't show significant spirit when
battling in the defensive zone .. slightly upgraded on his performance during
the second game against Czech Republic .. showed decent smarts and a precise
timing of his passes .. proved that he needs to pick up on his acceleration
as he couldn't keep up with the fastest players .. an average factor in the
third game against Slovakia .. tried to be creative and set up his wingers,
but the plays he created were turned aside by the Slovak defense.
