hmm.. I think Buchnevich is looking better than both of them right now. He might even get some good KHL time in the upcoming year.
To me, Nichushkin at the moment, for his jr game:
Skill set: 8/10
Team play: 6/10
Hockey IQ: 5/10
He's a highly individual player at the moment, and that could change playing in CHL. He's one of the few rare exceptions, I would say, who would benefit more from NA coaching. He already has pretty good hands and movement, but his overall game suffers even at MHL and U18 levels.
