  1. i didnt see a thread covering this subject, so if there is one, please refer me to it...

    Ok, i just wanted to know, is there a site that shows all players drafted in this year's draft along with at least the last 10 years' draft that that shows players drafted by nationality?

    From what i gather, not as many russians were drafted this year (at least not in the first round) as in past years'. Im assuming this has to do with the lack of an agreement with Russia (which im pretty sure is exactly what the federation wants; NHL stopping the draft of Russian groomed players).

    Im also just curious as to watch the tendency of drafting players from non-traditional markets like Denmark (Kopitar, if im not mistaken).

    On another note, what do you think the future of Russians being drafted looks like? Not very good i guess without an agreement in place?
