I hope he proves me wrong. He is barely 18 now. Barely. He fell to #37 for a reason unless everyone else is blind, Russian or not. We'll see.
I totally get that but as with Holden, I quite liked what Zykov did this year. While shiny new toys do tend to get hype, I genuinely feel that Zykov has higher upside than Pearson and Vey AND I think he's likely to hit that upside. I've seen Zykov play a good handful of games and every time I came away more impressed.

Like I said earlier, after Zykov is where it gets actually interesting. Now there's legit debates going on as to where a lot of prospects fall and I'm curious to see who walks away with the #5 spot here.
