With the 24th pick in the 2010 SB Nation NHL Mock Draft, our Atlanta Thrashers bloggers at Bird Watchers Anonymous select...
Evgeny Kuznetsov, Chelyabinsk (KHL)
From The Cannon's profile of Kuznetsov:
Kuznetsov is a highly talented Russian center currently playing for Traktor Chelyabinsk in the KHL. He is the exact definition of high-risk, high-reward. First, there's the threat of either not coming over or bolting back to Russia if he doesn't get his way. Then, there is the fact that he is one of the most inconsistent players in the draft. When he's on- he's explosive and can put up gobs of offense. The problem is, he's not "on" as often as he needs to be. A team could get a superstar if he slips.
Six picks remaining in the round. Three tomorrow, three Friday.
