The Kings are selecting #19 on Friday evening. After Tyler and Taylor; it's anyone's guess who will be drafted. There's plenty of deep Russian talent but many people are scared of by the 'Russian Factor' that looms over many of these prospects.

I'm going to do my best to profile each one of these prospects tomorrow. We'll see how that plan goes. It's going to depend alot on whether or not Japan can get a win/draw versus Denmark tomorrow in the World Cup.
