How many of those Russian players drafted in early 00's really had NHL potential? Looking back on those picks, I get the feeling they drafted and gambled on every half-decent Russian those days. Therefore those numbers doesn't really reflect the amount of talant in Russia.

How much better is the infrastructure in Russia compared to situation 10-15 years ago? One thing is to build huge arena for KHL club, but if kids still have to play in crumbling soviet hangars, then situation isn't that much different.
