    The Russian Factor is Real

    The Russian Factor is real. Here are the only Russian forwards who have had at least 100 career points since 1999:

    Malkin
    Ovechkin
    Kovalchuk
    Semin
    Frolov
    Zherdev
    Kulemin
    Saprykin
    Radulov
    Anisimov

    In hindsight, how many of these guys are worthy of a top-10 pick? Only 3 to 4 of all the Russian forwards drafted since 1999 are top-10 worthy, in my opinion.

    I think that there is a difference in attitude and upbringing with this generation over the previous one. Whereas the last generation had guys like Bure, Fedorov, Larionov, Fetisov, Datsyuk, etc., this generation seems to be more money-oriented and prima-donnas.

    Just my 2 cents.
