From what I gather the RSL was a lower scoring league so while their raw numbers may be the comparable, Ovechkin scoring what he did in the RSL was more impressive than what Tarasenko did in the KHL. Plus lets not forget Ovechkin is better at pretty much everything, and at the draft projected to have a higher ceiling at everything. If Tarasenko's scouting report looked like Ovechkin's someone would have gambled on him before the 16th overall pick.
