It was interesting to see the variation in all three drafts of where the top Russian talent would be drafted. Kimelman had Nichushkin going at 8, which is where he should be drafted in my eyes. I agree that if he is around at 14 that we should 100% take him, could like Tarasenko who was a top talent that slipped because of the "Russian factor".

Zadorov was surprisingly ranked relatively low by all three experts, despite playing pretty well for London this year. Guess it shows how strong the incoming draft class is!
