The proof is in the "pudding" so to speak. Murray has never drafted a Russian in the 1st round, and I simply don't see that changing. I'll eat my hat if he ever does.
Your point is invalid because you have no evidence that Murray WILL NOT draft a Russian. I agree that the odds are very unlikely, but who do you think he picks if he had the first overall pick last year? That's what I thought. If the player is playing in Canada, there's no doubt in my mind that Murray would be willing to take them if they were the clear cut BPA.

You're saying that Murray will under no circumstances will draft a Russian, which simply put is beyond ludicrous on your part.
