Well they're quite happy with Marincin and Klefbom (whom I wanted to draft badly), but they still need a top pairing guy and tbh he needs to be in the same age group as their prized trio. I don't think they'll pass on them just because their Russians. Even Columbus would be stupid to do so. Worst case for them is that they trade that pick and someone else picks one of them.
