Why are you making such a big deal on something thats a long shot to begin with?
Very few Russian prospects drafted this high after having come to north America to learn our game and acclimate to our culture go back. The only guy I can think if is Radulov and he came back to Nashville. Can you name any other top 5 Russian drafted prospect who's gone back to Russia? A top 10? I can't think of any off the top of my head and the only names I think that we're dafted this high ALL play in the NHL despite getting humongous offers to play in the KHL.
This seems like your making a mountain out of a mole hill. Is it a possibility, yes. Is it likely, no.
