Yeah, I think Lipon's a bit of a wild card where he'll be taken, but it's perfectly fine not to have him taken earlier. I just think with Gillis' recent trend of drafting late bloomers he might be a good pickup for us.

Also, I do know the Russian factor does come into play, but I think Nichushkin is hands down a better pick than Zadorov. Although maybe Zadorov is somehow more likely to play in the NHL? I don't know.
