As a charter member of the Draft Tarasenko Club everyone knows where my vote went. Sure id like Nino's size but i just couldnt pass up Tarasenko's higher skill level especially when it comes with an NHL ready body, a winger who is tough on the puck, and a smallish guy who is still an absolute bulldog in the corner. Having smaller guys isnt an issue if they play bigger and are willing to do all the dirty work. Skill and tenacity are a tough combo to find and has been all but non existent in Carolina. That said i do have concern whether the kid will want to play in a city with almost no Russian presence to speak of....and i dont blame him if it is a concern. I dont even like staying in CA too long because i feel out of place. Although the Finns seems to have found Raleigh in a positive light in spite of having no finnish communities prior to their arrival.
