anyhow, Tolchinksiy, Dikushin, Vorob'ev - before leaving to NA - cream of the crop of Russian juniors born in 95, arguably top-5 forwards and top-3 d-man (Vorob'ev was rated higher than Zadorov) end up not even being drafted.....
There is no doubt in some cases they haven't progressed as expected, but the NHL draft shouldn't be used as a measurement of progression for the vast majority of Russian prospects. The NHL draft is heavily biased against Russian prospects. Look at how many Russian based prospects were drafted this year and where they went.
