Poile\Trotz are HUGE on "Predators players," which entails a big degree of character. We've passed on players who were more "skilled" to take players that fit that mold in the past, and I don't think there's a player in the draft we're less likely to take than Kiriil Kabanov. It would be one thing if it were someone like Burmistrov, who a lot of the scouts feel is committed and free of those types of issues...but when you should be a top ten pick and will likely go in the late first simply because you're a jerk...not happening for us.
