Sure people worry about the KHL, but people are also kicking themselves for not drafting Tarasenko/Kuznetsov.

I know Gillis has a penchant for avoiding Russians, but if he has the opportuity to draft him, he would be an excellent addition to help give us a potential star forward for the future.
I am a very big fan of Nichushkin and yeah, if we have a chance to take him anywhere outside the top 10 I will be extremely disappointed if we don't jump on it.
