He's already paid his dues in Jrs and the minors more that most Russians typically seem willing to do but he's going to have to pay some more dues IMO and even then likely won't be a big time player IMO so I could see him eventually returning to Russia. Many Russians are good enough for the NHL but return to the KHL to play a bigger role there in their home country for as just as much money.
What I really find funny here though is that I voted for Grachev in this poll but don't think overly highly of him while a few who seem positive about his future and potential voted for someone else!
IKR!!! (Oh! That means, "I know, right?!" and you have to say it like a Borinqueña from Humboldt Park, Chicago)
It's funny how wildly inconsistent we are in how we select the prospects. But now that I've accepted how lame these polls are and how my methods are constantly changing it makes them more fun!
