Slepyshev is a showcase of the 'russian factor'. KHL 2011 draft 1st overall pick, so he ended up with Novokuznetsk. One of the worst teams in the KHL but with great hockey school(Bobrovsky, Orlov, Kitsyn, Arzamastsev), great attitude towards young players where they actually get to play on the big team like Slepyshev at age 17. So the NHL GMs just fear he will stay like Kuznetsov.
