Artyukhin is definitely at the KHL's Top 10 and really beast as an power forward, but as a russian fighter from my opinion he comes after Semenov and Svitov.
Svitov's performance against heavies like Grenier, Sugden and Mirasty was much better than how Artyukhin did against Brennan or Gratton.
Semenov is an underrated fighter cause he doesn't fight so often, but at the North America has done really well against some NHL -level heavies. Hopefully we'll see him go against some big boys at this season.
Semenov vs. Godard:
Where should be mentioned Chris Simon? I'd put him in top 5 instead of Josh Gratton, seems like Gratton won't be playing in KHL this season.
I forgot Chris Simon
. He's 40 years old, but if Gratton doesn't play at the KHL, then I think he's at the top 5.
