yeah I was going to post this in defense of this pick and the RHP pick. I thought it was a pretty good idea myself. Why not? They're late round picks. I like the logic.
the best example of team who draft overarger is the Lightning with Ondrej Palat drafter in 7 round he was 20 years old
When you look at the probabilities of 6th and 7th rounders even just getting into NHL games, might as well go for these kind of players.
If it's a weaker draft then I'm ok with it. In the case of RHP though I didn't like that they traded a pick to get him, if you want him that bad just use the 7th we already had.
6th and 7th round picks are always projects anyway.
Clearly they wanted Ruscheinski also, hence why they got that extra 7th. It's been Habs' M.O. the last few years anyways. Trading the following year's 7th to get a 7th of the current year.
In 2016, they moved their 2017 7th to Winnipeg to draft Henrikson.
In 2017, they moved their 2018 7th to Philly to draft Primeau.
In 2018, they moved their 2019 7th to Philly to draft Stapley.
In 2019, they moved their 2020 7th to Philly to draft RHP.
And now in 2020, they already moved their 2021 7th to get Chicago's 2020 7th in the Shaw deal. And if the trend continues, they will get a 2021 7th back by moving their 2022 7th.
So really, That was a nothing trade. They moved a 7th for a 7th. They didn't have to give up an earlier pick to get their hands on an extra 7th.
clearly but it's not like they needed to pick Ruscheinski if they liked RHP more then just pick one since last June's draft looked to be weaker in terms of the later rounds and this years deeper so I'd rather have a 7th in '20 then an extra one in '19 to take a overager from the Q that they should have been able to sign as a FA after the draft and a total wild card from a league that just doesn't see players get drafted from.
The whole thing was just odd and in a way shows a kind of sad state that the Habs felt they needed to draft a local overager because he might not want to sign here, that doesn't speak well as you just think it's more of an almost automatic that a local overager would want to sign with the Habs, if it's a NHL contract or AHL if they are only offered AHL contracts by other teams.
And more recently Alexander Volkov who has been doing really well in the AHL. He was 19, but still a bold pick in the 2nd round. I was high on the kid as well, but even I thought it was a tad early.
Is he Avtsin 2.0 yet?
they are teammates, in 11 less games Khisamutdinov had 2 more points in the KHL last year.
Exactly. Would much rather see picks like this one instead.
So which is the city's name and which is the team's name?
Nizhnekamsk is the city name. It's in Tatarstan.
It's like it was meant that Arsen would be a Hab.
Nizhnekamsk Neftekhimik is his KHL club. it's the same team that Grabovski played for before he came over to the Habs.
That doesn't quite answer the question
