Radulov and the Predators are the biggest reason why the "russian factor" exists. Considering we haven't drafted a Russian since, and the fact that he's still signed to a contract in the KHL like Kuznetzov is I seriously doubt he's picked by us or Carolina.
Shame too, I hear his game is reminiscent of Malkin.
was pretty stupid how they did it... as soon as someone got opened not in their pre-lottery position the rest would have been anticlimactic. if the 7 or 8 team had won it would have been like... oh well, we have all these other envelopes but we know who won....
Not only that but you could even see the logo of the team in the envolope. It wasn't a good view but you could see the team colors and the general shape of the logo. Right after he opened it, before he could even turn it over I found myself saying "on to the next card."
