I'm fine keeping him. Looks a lot like McDonaugh the year before he broke out. Not saying he'll be as good but he has the tools.

Denis Grebeshkov was a 1st rounder,signed to an NHL contract and playing for the isles,when Snow felt the young defenseman needed more time in the AHL.He bolted to the KHL and we haven't seen him since.
Petrov,drafted in 2008, keeps saying he wants to play in the NHL,but won't come over.
Klementyev and Alexandrov both came over to play in NA and later headed home.

My comments against using high picks on Russians, are in the Isles draft thread from the past 2-3 months.
