    I think he was being sarcastic.

    Most of what's scaring people away from Cherepanov is the fact that he's under Russian hockey right now and when or if the NHL team that drafts him can pull him out of the super league, the kid himself is not the problem, as shown by this interview.

    I agree, but I also think that the translation helped a bit. ;)

    "Who of the Russians is planning on attending the draft ceremony?
    -Its quite possible that only Bashkirov and I will be there..."

    Yeah, they care...

    Right. I'm not doubting that. It's the vocabulary that is subjective.

    Or maybe it's too far and expensive to fly to find out if you'll been drafted in 4th or 5th round??? Unless you're projected to go in the first rounds there's no point going to risk getting your heart broken. The only other one who should be there along with those 3 is Mayorov, and he very well could be there.

    Wow, anyone else impressed with the poise he shows in this interview? I know you don't see him converse, but his answers sound welll thought out. This kid is going to be the steal of the draft.

    Could be, i know there was that possibility by i still needed to laugh at the quote, not necessarily at the author.
    If that was supposed to be sarcastic, generating a sarcastic laugh was
    good no? however i see my impressive post was soon deleted by HF very effective censorship..
    ..so here i have a new reason for this.. :lol:

    Would you fly to Russia for a single day to be drafted in the fourth round of the RSL?

    Based on???

    Oh wait, the fact he's Russian, I forgot. Because all Russian players are naturally cancers in the locker room, of course, it's so simple now.:sarcasm:

    Perhaps I'm generalizing too much, but I can't see Columbus "risking" a draft pick on a Russian anytime soon.

    Cherepanov does actually seem to be a very intelligent kid. As for the translation, Russian is a richer and more expressive language than is English, and if anything, I did not do Cherepanov justice by having to compress what he said into English.

    Yeah, one of the sports writers in Columbus wrote that the Jackets have no interest in the kid because he apparently has a similar personality to Zherdev. He sounded really mature and dedicated in that interview, however, which is more than could ever be said of Z.
