dont be so quick to judge this guy- hes doing what most marginal russians do. stay home.

however, keep an open mind on russian players because next spring, you will all be bombarded with the following names and everyone, and i mean everyone, will be foaming at the mouth over these 3.

yakupov
grigorenko
galenchyuk


these 3 are not marginal. at all. remember those names.
How are you gonna love it when all three are Eastern Conference teams not named the Rangers.
