I'm interested to see what Valeri Nichushkin looks like in the WJC. I know Russians don't usually rank high on Stars prospect lists, however he's getting strong reviews along the lines of Malkin (of course), but a 6'4 frame and 200lbs crafty, mobile center is nothing to sneeze at.

In reading some of the prospect listings, I'm surprised Drouin is listed at 185. In direct comparison to MacKinnon who is 182, MacKinnon plays like he's about 20lbs heavier and even from the stands looks quite a bit bigger than Drouin. That said, if Drouin can learn to use his size effectively in combination with his awesome offensive awareness, I'd love to have him running the powerplay in the future.
