And splitting hairs among racism, stereotyping, and cultural superiority is irrelevant. The fact is that we're 0-2 on highly drafted Russians. I don't thinks that should be a factor going forward, but if someone feels differently about that, I understand. That doesn't make them racist. I presume they are pragmatically deciding that the real opportunities outside the NHL available to Russian players make them a riskier bet for NHL teams. I think that's a reasonable position.
