Obviously the Habs were one of the few teams who knew a lot about him. I would guess the Belarus league Sergei was playing in was not scouted all that much. Or when scouts came to watch him he had a bad game. Keep in mind that quite often scouts only see a player a handful of times in a season and if the player does not play well during that game, scouts tend to write him off as a prospect to consider.
Top 75 on Savard's list and we still get him in the last round
