As we saw from the Justin Schultz fiasco in Anaheim, flight risks can be any player of any nationality. Even a good old Canadian boy...
And not all stereotypes hold prejudice. I gave you a reason for my feeling about drafting Russian players in general. If I didn't have an actual reason for my feeling it would be prejudice.

Let's stop dropping words that make people look bad unless we know for sure it's what we want to say. Thanks.

I don't know about cards, but, uh, I think these four-fives beat a full house. Hey banker, cash me out, yo.
