He was drafted 1st overall in the KHL because it was the 1st ever KHL draft. All of the KHL teams protected all their best players and then held a "draft" to redistribute the rest.

He was drafted in the 7th round in the NHL draft, and not only because of the Russian factor.

Pashnin is currently not under contract. How anyone can think he's a better prospect that Weise, given what Weise has done in the AHL, is beyond me. Weise should be higher than 18th, but I guess other prospects are newer and shinier.
