FWIW: NHL scouts consider Kuznetsov the #1 ranked prospect outside the NHL in their latest Hockey News top 50 prospects ranking.

Washington stole him #26th overall in 2010 as teams that are unafraid to draft Russians pass on talent in the entry draft. Similarly how Leafs got Kulemin in the 2nd due to his birth certificate, and falling out of the 1st round on his talent.

He potentially could be far better in the NHL than Grabs or Kulemin and might even become an elite NHLer statistically like Datsyuk or Malkin..

An OV -- Backstrom -- Kuznetsov top line might soon become the NHL's most dangerous trio in time.
