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.
It was last century, wasn't it. Feeling very old now. Your fault!
True about Federov being in the "cold war" days. Live ammunition made the
dissiplinary hearings more exciting back then.
