The way I see it - he is. He's already playing like a vet, all situations, eating up more minutes than any of these guys seen so far, good both ways, right-handed shot - quality which is pretty pretty hard to find in Russian D (not between those ones you've listed though). Since he's easily the best undrafted D of his age group (while these you've listed are pretty regular Joes) CSKA would be wise to get their hands on him as early as they can.
And I'm fairly certain Marchenko will be signed by the Red Wings for next season.
