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.
Actually, I think the anti-Russian contingent on these boards is much larger and more vocal than the pro-Russian contingent.
The funny thing is, in the case of V-Tank and Pashnin, I actually think that they endear themselves more to the fans who are
anti-Russian. People like them because of the physical element that they bring.
