While I agree they'll probably take Faksa, Galcheyuk is a bit different than Grigorenko. Galchenyuk was born in Milwaukee, WI and lived in the US, Russia and other European countries following his father's playing career. His family moved him over to Chicago to play his first JR. hockey in Chicago and he chose to play for Team USA as opposed to Russia.

I'm not saying JR will draft him, but he is a bit different than a typical Russian prospect that JR stays away from.
