Do I see Nikita falling to 17th like Cherry? Absolutely not, but I could easily see him fall to 10th
Its common knowledge. No other team had the patience to be able to wait on this kid for a year or two.
Toronto would have, its what was being talked about the entire night of that first round draft. Pierre saying how JFJ got a great goaltender but missed the oppertunity on a world class talent when he traded that pick... yada yada yada.
If Filatov does not fall it could be a potential hint that maybe either A chere is not as good as we think, or B. Filatov is just that much better and it had nothing to do with the transfer agreement.
Although I doubt Filatov will go at #2-5 and will drop a bit, the Rangers will not be as fortunate enough to grab him at 20.
