At least the two I consider have the biggest potential to be elite stayed in Russia and are doing well this includes Nichushkin who is already in the KHL and did well at the WJC and Buchnevich who has also played KHL this season and dominated the MHL.
The 1995 class is very good hopefully the majority of them live up to their potential.
Interesting stat about the WJC which is not really a measure of CHL Vs Staying in Russia but still interesting. The Russian WJC team with the least foreign based players in the past five years won Gold in 2011 (1 CHL player which was Bobkov who was back up). This years and last years team had 5 CHL based players.
Like I said it is not a measure but interesting little fact and something to follow.
Oh and Filonenko > Serebryakov
Based on the Russian posters comments, the coach of the team has more meaning that what league the players are playing in at that moment.
