Gordeev moves much better than Rasanen.

Gordeev is exciting because he is a huge dman that is quick, if he can round out his defensive game, he will be a top prospect.

He's still learning about gap control and other defensive fundamentals for now though.

pretty exciting to think of having one huge great skating defensemen in a few years.  Even better if one of the others develops into anything.

Yeah, remember Jake Gardiner is a success story of a forward transitioning to D and yet he is an absolute bomb scare in his own end.

Gordeev has a long way to go to even be half as good as Gardiner, but the raw skills he possesses are exciting when you consider his size.
