Actually there was a story Trevor Timmins' told about discovering Sergei. They were actually just scouting Andrei to find some flaws in his game that they wanted him to work on .. and they noticed Sergei.
I'm thinking Belarus doesn't get a hell of a lot of scouts (5 or 6 drafted/draftable players in the last how many years).
Grabovski, Kostitsyn (x2), Stefonovich, then I think there was a defenseman in there too.
Theres 2 more prospects than Stefanovich just this year, maybe it's something new but it seems like Belarus is either getting some more recognition after the Kostitsyn story or they are continually improving their production level of elite players.(more likely imo) I think Belarus is bound to become the 8th nation if they can maintain this path.(Denmark looks pretty good lately as well)
1st/2nd round material
6th, 7th round material
Artem Demkov(a small winger)
Sergei Korolik(a huge forward already playing pro)
+2 more that are europe pro potentials.
I heard 2009 will be good as well
