while i dont agree with your concern about coming over, i will say i wouldnt be worried as kamenev wont go in round 1.

the only 2 russian kids going in round 1, imo, and both are playing major junior now. kemenev , were he here already, might join that group making it 3 but since hes back home, he goes 2nd maybe early 3rd round.

hes an impressive player that is mostly unknown outside of those weird draftnik types who watch alot of euro junior and khl hockey. kyle woodlief mentioned him awhile back i remember.

lots to like about a big 17 yr old pivot with wheels, hands, vision, shot and 2 way compete level.

potential 2nd round prize with 1st round skillset.
