His downsides, for being Russian he doesn't have a ton of speed but that can be worked on, also his dad is the coach on the team he plays on and he will probably stay in Russian for a year or 2 developing then come over. He plays with a ton of passion as well, much like Ovechkin. There are scouts saying the Rangers take him at 10 but I think they will pass and take Skinner with his leadership abilities to compliment guys like Dubinsky and Callahan.
He goes to the net hard. I like him. I would take him at 15.
