Did the "Russian Factor" keep Ilya Kovalchuk from reaching the Stanley Cup Finals? Did it keep Slava Voynov from hoisting lord Stanley's mug? Do u see a lack of effort from guys like OV or Gino or Markov or Datsyuk??
To be honest. Many people feel that way. Just surprised Grant felt that was about the near majority choice for #1 overall. At that point, I don't think russian factor comes into play.
