You may be confident he will reach his potential (and I would likely agree), but a 1st is an overpayment for KK at this point in time. No doubt.
His talent level is/was 1st round talent. Since his first training camp years ago he has had no problems of the ice and is developing nice. Why would we train a player with his size skill and a lot closer to NHL ready then a 17 or 18 year old question mark that would most likley be a late first.
The Russian factor for him is very minimal. Hes already playing pro for the organization in NA
We dont need to trade Prospects for other prospects or Picks.
