It's kinda odd though when everyone (including BoltsProspects) ranks our 19th pick over 10th pick from the moment they were drafted.
If you take away the Russian stigma and base it on talent alone Vasilevski would have likely gone top 8 atleast so I don't find it too odd considering how gung ho he is about playing for the Lightning.
