I feel sorry for Ottawa. Murray's bigotry cost them a star.
Even the Blues drafted Schwartz before Tarasenko, there was certainly some risk with drafting him. But even before he was drafted he publicly stated that he wanted to play in the NHL, but I understand the skepticism of an 18 year olds word.

Murray not drafting Russians as a rule is silly though, just lazy IMO. You got to evaluate each prospect on their own to determine their chances of coming over. Just silly to alienate an entire pool of prospects.
