It also seems there is a reason he went as low as the 5th round:
1) I always said this thread is misnamed, it should be NA, not just CHL
2) Who said he's the next Ovechkin?
3) Why is his raw talent hasn't materialized? I am convinced that in NA they don't work on bringing players to the next level and in Russia they do. In NA they choose the best one out there, since there's a plethora of players of average world skill to choose from, while in Russia - not so much
4) In addition, if memory serves me right, he's had a slew of injuries and some bad.
