I think playing him in the NHL where he can be around other talents who went through a lot the same thing in thier rookie years (Nash in particular) cant be anything other than a good thing.
I also love how every year there's a new Sister Mary Sunshine who accepts the mantel of lecturing those of us who have seen this series of events play out before.

Every guy drafted in the lottery has all the talent to succeed in the NHL. They don't all put it together because not everyone one of them has the work ethic and tough shell needed to succeed. Does Nikki or doesn't he have those attributes? Time will tell. And, playing in the NHL with guys like Nash, etc., didn't help Gilbert Brule.
