If one of Burmistrov/Tarasenko falls to ~20, I have to believe Kuznetov falls to at least the late second round. I think Kuznetov is the player that will be most affected by the KHL factor, personally.
I'd agree with that. He's got a two-year commitment to the KHL. I've seen him in the 1st round on a lot of mocks, but, you cannot rule out the...(pausing for dramatic effect)..."Russian factor".
