Orlov fell too, 9th ranked European, picked 55th..

Johansson was also a faller too, 8th ranked European Caps got 24th.. Though according to McKenzie he was stetch who had him at 33.

Some people may peg me as too much in love with Russian players, but its always because I know they will fall and still be great player. GMGM has been great at picking late first rounders that were truly top 10 talents. The only guy he has truly been wrong about I think so far is Grigorenko.
