And why have I never seen him in the top 10? In fact last I saw Namestnikov was higher.
I think Burmistrov is the smarter, more disciplined player, and possibly a better passer technically, but I think Khokhlachev has more skill and talent, as well as creativity. I like both players. I agree with ODC here, I would be fine if the Rangers picked him. But I don't see it happening.

Namestnikov is too small and inconsistent. If he builds up his body and dedicates himself more he can be a second liner in the NHL. He's not a dumb player.

Khokhlachev is definitely the better player of the two, IMO. I think he should be picked between 10-15, but I have a feeling he'll fall to the 20s.

Personally, I think Strome belongs in that first tier. I love that guy.
