Who to take at number 10
I have really had my doubts about him. Unlike Pettersson, he didn’t fly under the radar and he was given serious consideration all year as the #3 pick. He looks like a hockey player and he plays like a hockey player should. Guys who have played against him have nothing but good things to say about his skills. But guys like German Rubstov, Denis Gurianov and Valero Nichushkin really do scare me away from the Ruskies.

I heard this on the radio today, and I agree with it....
The great Russian players come to the NHL, the mediocre do not.
It's that simple.

As tough as that is to hear, it has some merit. There are exceptions as always, but I think the KHL tends to absorb the less confident. I like the pick, but it’s no slam dunk as Burke made it out to be.
