Way to miss my point. I'd gladly trade our future 3rd line 'character' center for the chance of drafting someone that could emerge as a true superstar.
Everyone just about **** their pants at the thought of getting Kovalchuk, another 18 year old that had never played any games on North American ice. Sure, Filatov won't ever be as prolific a scorer as Kovalchuk, but he's up there in terms of potential.

And he's not some hit-or-miss Brendl, or a player like Zherdev that doesn't utilize his potential, he's a determined and charismatic guy like everyone's favourite Canadian boy Stamkos. And Timmins loves him.

His English is also as good as Russians that have been in the league 5 years.
