9/7/18 | While describing his skill level, Gordie Clark said that while Buchnevich will score on a slap shot once in a while, "his passing ability is on another planet." (SI)

Buchnevich's agent said that when Buchnevich feels he has been "slighted" it puts him in a bad mood and that "when he's pissed off, he can produce." (SI)

Alain Vigneault said of Buchnevich in March, "there is some learning, there is some adjustments, Buchie is going through that like any young player like I've had in my career. There is a learning curve, peaks and valleys and Buchie is a lot like younger players. There is a tremendous amount of upside with that young man, we just have to work with him to get it more consistent."

Vigneault said that when Buchnevich struggles it is usually because of his decisions with the puck and that "you get to making the right plays by working on your game, improving your knowledge and understanding and there are less of those when you become a better and more experienced player."

Larry Brooks wrote over the weekend that when Pavel Buchnevich was preparing to leave Russia and join the Rangers, the player he was most "likened" to was Washington's Evgeny Kuznetsov. (NY Post)

  • Brooks wrote, in 2016, that Buchnevich is both a playmaker and a sniper who has a skill set that has been likened to that of the Capitals Evgeny Kuznetsov. He noted that it took Kuznetsov a full-year to get acclimated before he hit his stride. (NY Post)

Kuznetsov told Elliotte Friedman a couple of years ago that the issues he had to overcome were in his head and said recently that he never looks at his shifts and that he knows when he is playing well and not playing well. (Sportsnet.ca)

He added, "I'm better at forgetting now when I'm not good." (Sportsnet.ca)

Pavel Buchnevich conducted an interview in Russia and said the following (Sports-Express):

  • The line combinations at the end of the season seemed to be created in a "random way," like shuffling a deck of cards.
  • He wanted to try playing center but didn't get the chance.
  • He "did not feel anything" when Alain Vigneault was let go and he learned about it from "the news."
  • The explanation from management about selling was that this was not a team that could win the cup and that it was time for a change.
  • On his season, Buchnevich said that everything depends on his confidence and that it's easier to play when he doesn't have to fear that one mistake will cause a decrease in ice time. He said that he could play a few good games in a row, struggle in one and then find himself on the fourth line with minimal ice time.

  • Losing Derek Stepan is a "substantial loss" but the team has young players like JT Miller and Kevin Hayes that will get more experience and should be better next season.
  • His focus is on playing this season without injuries.
  • His back is healed and he spent time with the medical staff of his former team in the KHL.
  • He isn't afraid of "Russian torturer" Lindy Ruff and that Ruff will be working with the defense.
  • The AHL is "classic North American hockey" and features a lot of hitting and fighting.
  • He was supported by his teammates during his goal drought.

6:58PM: Adam Clendening is in for Steven Kampfer and Buchnevich is in for Tanner Glass.

Vigneault said earlier tonight (NYR):

  • "Our PK on the road has been good, at home it's miscues and misreads and it's an area that we are spending a lot of time on. It's an are that we know, speciality teams, need to be better and we are spending a lot of time on it."
  • On being consistent, "you look at last night's game and we are ready to play. In the first 10 minutes we had a lot of looks and other than one scoring chance 5 on 5 we didn't give them anything in the first. Then we took a penalty and they had two opportunities off of that. The second we know wasn't good enough, we weren't skating or moving the puck but we played real well in the third. We know as a group that it's a 60 minute effort and that is what we will try to do tonight."
  • On injury updates, "Kleiner skated and felt good. Dan did not skate, a scheduled off day for him, so we will see how they all are tomorrow."
  • On Buchnevich, "he's a young player, like I have mentioned a lot of times. We are talking to him about the areas that he is doing well and want him to continue and there are other areas where he needs to improve on and we are doing that on a daily basis and I am confident he will have a good game tonight."
