I was listening to Bob McCowan...and Doug MacLean is a regular guest...must be buddies. Here is a paraphrased excerpt (Very close...but not verbatim.) Bob "So Doug with this Malkin situation, it puts a lot of pressure on guys that are drafting Russian kids. Obviously he might not be coming this year, and after that who knows." Doug "Hey, we paid $400K to get Zherdev over, and now he is talking about going back....how do you think we feel?" Bob "Makes you almost fed up with drafting Russians." Doug "Well, not exactly but it is getting to that point." It looked this year that some Russian kids dropped and next year...if there still is no agreement by the draft....then it could get worse. Thoughts?
