From what I can tell, Zadorov might have both the lowest floor and highest ceiling of the 2nd-tier defensive prospects (Nurse, Zadorov, Ristolainen, Pulock). He's a huge risk. If you hit, you hit big, but I can't say I wouldn't be a bit nervous.
Probably a fair statement. I would say that all of those d-men have some risk, mostly because the Flyers can't seem to develop d-men very well. At least it seems that way. I do agree that Zadorov may be the biggest "project" out of the d-men in that area but I would be comfortable going for it because of the upside.
