Filatov was brought up speaking English. His mother if I remember right was an English language professor at a University. There was an article after the draft last year about Grachev--I think it was in Ottawa--at the hotel he was staying at he was testing his language skills on everyone he could run into. I don't think he's anywhere near Filatov--more in the Ovechkin range or Kovalev when he first came over. He is enthusisatic about it which is the important thing. He wants to be here.
