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.
I just used the roster listings from one site and they had the russian flag next to his name so I counted him. It only serves to lower the total anyone. I think the point is he (and Galchenyuk) has Russian ancestry so they counted them as Russians even though they associate themselves with different countries. Either way, I counted both when neither seems to really count. Just lowers the number and further proves the point.
