A lot of people seem to think he could be one, if not the best, forward in the draft, might as well take a chance on that talent.
Our luck, he would turn out like Burmy up in Winnipeg. Of course they are completely different players though.
He now goes to the one of the top franchise's in the KHL in Dynamo Moskva. That's the same team Ovechkin played for during the lockout.
Just looking on twitter a lot of Russian reporters think he'll drop in the draft now because of this.
So that could be potentially good news for us if we're outside the top 10 and he falls to us.
