Nikita Filatov(24) Ottawa Senators

After 3 years, Columbus gives up on their 2008 1st round pick (#6 overall), Nikita Filatov(24) and ships the fledging Russian superstar to Ottawa for what amounts to a bag of rocks, a 3rd round pick.

After watching him play the last few seasons with Springfield, I thinkĀ as he continues to put more weight on his frameĀ this kid is the real deal and possesses some outstanding play-make-ability. He is only 21.
