And sure, a 6th round Jason Allison isn't quite as good as they are, but it would still be a massive steal. Elite scoring forwards getting picked outside of the first two rounds is almost unheard of, especially if you disregard undersized players.
Fedorov (and Bure, Stastny, Mogilny etc) was a cold war era draft pick, that's a very different situation that can't really be compared with modern drafts. Think the modern Russian factor, except with 100 times more uncertainty.
