honestly, taking a russian keeper in the first round would be unwise.
first, we'll hear the typical anti-russian "yeah he wont ever play here" stuff (which i do not buy) and second, i dont like drafting goalies that high. ever.
this draft has some excellent value available around the time we will step to the podium and that value is in forwards and dmen. not netminders.
taking a russian keeper with our #1 pick, or any keeper for that matter, would be suspect.
i will say this however, this specific russian is very good. his quick hybrid style and size make for an interesting prospect.
him being russian does not faze me one bit. taking him in round 1 does.
