Taking Russians is risky and we couldn't afford to take the chance especially when our prospect pool is so shallow.
I prefer to think that after today, we have our top lines set for the next ten years with Horvat, Shinkaruk, Gaunce, Jensen, Schroeder and Kassian.
Russians are also prone to be selfish, tempermental and likely to disappear in big games.
