I'd feel safer taking Zadorov although I'm not sure why because even though he is playing in the CHL, he could pull the KHL thing for contract leverage just like any other Russian.

The Jets are a prospect thin team so I would rather we took the next player on the list than take a chance on someone who might not show. Some teams can afford that risk; I don't think we can.
