I had that exact same conversation with some friends this weekend so maybe it just grated on me a little extra today.

If I were to make a realistic projection for him and compared his overall talent level(not style) to other Russian wingers then somewhere between Radulov and Semin is a fair projection without going to much into the overrating area. If he exceeds that, great! But if that is what we realistically see from him, then we are likely to come out with one of the top 5-6 players from that draft class.
This the "will be" game about projects is the stupidest game ever. But people still like it. So we can talk about anything - nobody will execute us if we turn out to be wrong...
