The recent trades involving Dymtro Timashov and Dmitri Buchelnikov in the KHL highlight uncertainty about Buchelnikov's NHL potential.

Selected 52nd overall in the 2022 NHL Draft, Buchelnikov showed promise with a 13-goal season while on loan with Admiral, but his quick trade by SKA St. Petersburg raises concerns. SKA coach Roman Rotenberg once compared him to Artemi Panarin, yet he was traded at 20 without a solid chance to establish himself.
Due to travel restrictions and Russia's international ban, the Red Wings rely on reports from scout Nikolai Vakourov and KHL game streams to evaluate Buchelnikov. Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman acknowledges the challenges, emphasizing the difficulty of assessing players without international exposure.
Even club legend Pavel Datsyuk, focused on his KHL coaching role, hasn't scouted Buchelnikov. Thus, Buchelnikov remains a mystery for the Red Wings, with his path to the NHL still uncertain.
