"Next Ovechkins" don't get picked in the 5th round. And does he really belong in this thread since he never played in the CHL? By the way there's more opinoon's on him at the thread in Canadiens' section:

It also seems there is a reason he went as low as the 5th round:

Q: So he is not the next Ovechkin, is he?
A:Actually, I wouldn't be rushing to making pronouncements. Yes, Avtsin has some real raw tallent. But he has certain gaps in his technical skills and tactical areas that he has to work on. How is he going to fix them? Different players correct those problems in different ways and there are some who never manage to fix them.
