Who the %$^& is Swallows? And maybe ESPN has Galchenyuk as the best pure talent for the same reasons you have Grigorenko as the best. Purely tribal.

ESPN is trying to sell hockey to an American market so they have to puff up Galenchenyuk. He has a Russian name but was born in the states and played for the states.

You prefer Grigorenko because he played in the Q. I have yet to hear anyone say this year that Grigo is the best pure talent.

And this is a perfect example of when you bring other issues (like language, nationality or what not) in matters that should involve only hockey.
