I suspect Poile will be a lot more cautious when it comes to guys with perceived attitude problems at the draft.
have you noticed, and I mean you as everyone, that the only real prima donna russians are the ones who had all the fanfare and didn't work hard enough to reach their potential? Yaashin, Filatov, etc. seems like we forget how hard the russian 5 in detroit, the datsyuks, kovalchuks, etc to be great.

and really that goes for all nationalities.
