With Nichushkin dropping to 10th and being drafted by Dallas, the "russian factor" again rears it's ugly head it would seem. Old ideas die hard in the NHL, the 'establishment' and it's archaic modus operandi still rules the day. Change is slow as the old boys hold vehemently to the reins. It's ridiculous to me and detrimental to hockey and to fans that enjoy to be entertained by the best talented players. It's high time that new blood and new ideas be embraced by the NHL.

A quick study looking into the so-called "Russian Factor" shows it to be of little consequence in reality.

I wanted to start this thread here hoping to get thoughts from those that may have more knowledge about this silly phenomenon.

Any and all thoughts appreciated.
