QuoteThis particular Russian under-18 team was also highly anticipated by scouts as this was the first year the Russians tried to emulate the U.S. National Team Development Program (USNTDP) by having them play together as one centralized elite club all season. In part because some of Canada's top junior players are still playing in the Canadian Hockey League playoffs, the United States has dominated the world under-18 event. The USNTDP has won eight of the past 11 gold medals and finished in the top three for 12 successive years.
Quote"It definitely hurts [their draft ranking] from my standpoint," Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray said. "I've only seen Rubstov once and others zero times. My scouts have seen them, but a late, positive viewing goes a long way. It's human nature."
