Murray has never had any problems trading for, or signing FA Russians, he simply doesn't like drafting them where they are the most volitile. Guys like Kovalev who have been around in the NHL for a while don't pack up and leave for "greener pastures". Prospects are usually the ones to make that threat.

Heck Kuznetsov wouldn't come over here this year and he might not be here next year either because he wants to play in the Olympics and play for his club back in Russia.
