Just curious, what were the comments at RWC that were toned down? The last article I saw on Marchenko was pretty positive, and then he moved up from being unranked to #20 on the final prospect tanking, with the comment, "A forgotten man earlier this season, Marchenko battled back from a tough knee injury and finished the season strong with CSKA Moscow’s junior team. The Red Wings think highly of the final-round pick but he needs to stay healthy for a full season."
