It's the Russian factor rearing it's ugly head.

If a draft lottery is run the same way, then it's a snake like draft - I think. So the #1 overall pick would have the #60 in the 2nd round. Now if the Isles are fortunate to land #1 or #2 overall, we're obviously golden because our lost 2nd rounder is no big loss since we'll have a high 3rd rounder. Now with that 3rd rounder, would the Isles continue tradition and take a chance on someone like Nichushkin who could fall despite being a top-10 talent? Could it be Petrov 2.0 or is it worth the risk? This is assuming Nichushkin does indeed fall.
