It took the Nashville Predators a decade to draft another Russian-born player after Alex Radulov - a player who seemed to leave the franchise with some serious baggage – but they finally did so with second-rounder (42nd overall) Vladislav Kamenev.

The Tennessean takes an interesting look at the thought process of a team that seems haunted by its dealings with Radulov.

“This isn’t just some shot in the dark that we took,” Predators chief amateur scout Jeff Kealty said. “We fully investigated the kid himself — the situation, his intentions — and he really does want to come play in the NHL someday.”
