I think it really depends on the talent level of the two guys. I don't know too many of these players at all, but if the Russian guy has a noticeably higher skill level, take him Russian or not IMO. We have three second rounders (I believe) so we'll be able to restock the cupboards regardless.

Our depth stinks at C and RW, but that's more that we're missing high end guys. Radulov is the only top six Russian I can think of that straight up bolted for the KHL after he was RFA. And i think that was because Nashville didn't want to give him a big deal right away (what O'Reilly wants, what Kane and Benn got). If this guy is as good as Kuznetzov and Tarasenko, or even better I don't care. Let him come over when he's 21 and then we plan the parade lol
