Yes he's a great player, but the NHL and OHL games differ greatly. Can he really get away with a poor work ethic in a professional league where mistakes are few and far between?

I wouldn't touch him. I'd love for the Leafs to get him at five, but Montreal doesn't seem like a good fit for him.

17 year old Russian playing in Quebec with a major language barrier issue and accused of being lazy. Anytime a Russian slumps they are accused of having a lousy work ethic, but other players aren't. I don't get it.

I think I'd take the risk and draft the most talented player in the draft and then get in touch with his coaches in Russia and give them a king's ransom to come work with the kid until he is ready.

I see Adam Oates, maybe better. I'm not dumping a lot of money in his cards, how often do you have people looking to buy Adam Oates' rookie cards? (Since this is a hockey card message board, I figured why the hell not bring it up.)

There is no one you would take at #1 for goaltender. Maybe they could deal the #1 pick for Schneider on Vancouver and their first rounder, but I don't kno if that's enough to not take Yapukov.

Hey all I say is we have a team In a city of about 600k who have sold out for at least 6 straight years ( of course 0 of those were playoff games).

Hold on I'm not sure if that's just sad.....

Aww who cares bring on the Nail in the coffin!
