Wrong. I don't like Kovy or Kozzie. I like Max alright. I love Malkin and Semin's even one of my favorite players in the NHL. I think Morozov and Zinoviev should be in the NHL. I used to want us to try and get Filatov. I even was excited about Nikulin coming over. I even love Alex Goligoski (just kidding).
I do think there's something with the way that Russian players are developed and shopped through agents to the NHL that means the flashier guys with not as much two way game tend to come over which is too bad - there are plenty of great Russian players with complete game that never make it over here.
