I'm also not sure Grigorenko or Komorov are going to stick in the NHL all year. The number is really low.
Komarov is Finnish, though.

I don't see a bias with the Rangers. Glen went out and got Gaborik, who is somehwat your typical "russian style" player, a "Bure light" (for the lack of a better comparison). Whoever makes the team better. I think that if Datsyuk, Malkin or Kopitar had been in the position of Nash in the summer, Glen would have traded for either of them the same way he traded for Nash.
