Some quotes from Tkachev from yesterday:

的 wasn稚 happy about not being drafted. It was probably the Russian factor with people thinking that I will go back home to play in the KHL. I made the decision after last season that I知 not going to play in the KHL again. I just want to play in Moncton this season and keep improving my game. I知 happy with my decision to come back here. The NHL is what I知 thinking about. The NHL is my dream and I知 going to work hard to get there.

And from the Moncton Wildcats GM:

的 think that NHL teams did make a mistake by not drafting Tkachev. It's going to take a team to be very patient with him. If I was with an NHL team and I had a guy like him, I would have a four-year plan for him. A lot of it would be physical training and getting stronger. I would invest time and effort in him. I believe that when you致e got a mind and a talent like him that he could turn out to be a player like Henrik Zetterberg. He痴 not big, but he痴 highly skilled and has an ability to avoid people.
