Disagree. Murray has never drafted a Russian for all of his 18 first round picks. He passed on Tarasenko and traded the pick when he was clearly BPA.

Murray simply doesn't like drafting Russians period.
What? He didn't pick Tarasenko because Forsberg hyped up Rundblad and the 1st Round Pick was required for the deal to work...

Also, where was Tarasenko playing when he was drafted? Russia. Were there rumours about him possibly not coming over to the NHL? Yes. Where is Zadorov playing? Canada. Were there rumours about him possibly not coming over to the NHL? No.

There have also been very few Russians that were 1st round talents by the time the Sens were up.
