I'm a big fan of Zlobin actually, I loved last years Shawinigan team and I'm rooting for the guy. He managed to bounce back from a rough start to his career in North America and defy a lot of the Russian stereotypes held against him.
I wanted the Habs to draft him when I saw he was still on the board and I didn't hear about Nystrom until after the draft...but Timmins did and this is a player Timmins targeted. Obviously you assume any 6th round pick is a long shot but he must have done something right for Timmins to have Rockstrom follow him.
Timmins seems to love this kid even more than previous high risk high reward picks like Pribyl and Sullivan.
