The Philadelphia Flyers signed Yevgeni Medvedev, who just terminated his contract with Ak Barz Kazan. As a member of Ak Barz, Medvedev was a teammate of Burmistrov. He had some interesting news in regards to Burmistrov as well.

This should not really come as a surprise for anyone. Rumours of Burmistrov wanting to come back to the NHL has circled around for years.

Last summer Alexander Burmistrov and the Winnipeg Jets carried discussions regarding Burmistrov terminating his KHL contract and coming across the water for the 2014-2015 season. After that did not work out but prior to the season's start, Burmistrov stated in an Russian interview that his NHL dream had not ended and he would most certainly return next year

So Burmistrov is likely coming across the water, but who is this player the Jets will likely be either signing or trading?

Draft Theory: On Risk and Reward

Hockey is full of time honored cliches: "We're going to take it one game at a time" "A two-goal lead is the hardest one to hold on to in hockey" "When you put the puck on net, good things happen" "We need to play a full 60 minutes" "We need to give 110%" "Your goalie has to be your best penalty killer". I'm not sure if it's that we love cliches, or the play-by-play guys and players love to repeat them.

In any case, one of the most overused cliche's as it relates to prospects is "He's a high risk, high reward player", but in many cases this term is pretty inaccurate. 

I'll explore the relationship between risk and reward when evaluating prospects after the jump.
