Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
Enter Sergei Bobrovsky, a complete unknown with big question marks, who has left fans wondering if he is the next great goaltender to emerge from Russia.
Bobrovsky, 22, went undrafted because of a complex KHL-to-NHL transfer agreement that left some of Russia’s top talent uncharted for fear that a draft pick might be wasted on a player who more than likely never will make it to North America.
Bobrovsky is faster post-to-post than one of Emery’s Lamborghinis, has a great feel for shots, and never quits on a puck.
What could set Bobrovsky apart - from Emery, Antero Niittymaki, Roman Cechmanek and all others who have tried to be the “next one” - could be what resides between his ears.
He does not bat an eye at pressure.
