Had the Russians been included in that, Cherry is taken top 5.

Filatov is in the same boat and I could see him dropping as well. Alot of teams do not want to deal with the hassle that comes along with drafting a russian kid nowadays.

I'll go out on a limb right now and sa that Nikita drops to the 8-12th spot
Toronto would take him at #7 no matter the Transfer Agreement
