Rangers are shying away from drafting Russian players. They have drafted only 2 in the last 4 years. Grachev is no longer with the team by his own request.
Yeah I really doubt the nationality of the posters is a reason. I was high on Valenteko. Adam Graves raved about him too... I'm high on Kreider and McColgan too, but not because they're American..
