I was at the game today in Vancouver. I went in planning to watch a bunch of Canadians and Yakupov, but couldn't take my eyes off Nichushkin. He was the best forward on either team imo. Kid definitely has all the tools, he's big, strong, a great skater, and very talented/dynamic with the puck. I get the hype, I have to think that if he was Canadian he would go VERY high in the draft, but the Russian factor is scary. Have only seen a few games of his, hard to comment on the selfish/low iq comments. The Rick Nash comparison seems pretty good.
