The "Russian," the "goalie," and the "1st" are all concerning, to be honest.

1. Any "Russian" prospect has a higher chance of eventually ending up in the KHL than any other nationality. A generalization, but I don't think it is much of a stretch. That being the case, if you're going to spend a 1st round pick, you better be sure they have a certain future role with your club.

2. A selection of any "goalie" at this point would be suspect, particularly if...

3. The pick happens to be in the 1st round--which in the past has not been as consistent at producing starters goaltenders, compared to say, forwards or defenseman.
