I'd also take Lipon in the 2nd round, but that's just me.

And I think Nichushkin is a bit low. I don't know too much about how the Russian factor would affect him, but I don't see him falling below Zadorov.
Russian factor is a big thing. Kuznetsov went 26th, Tarasenko 14th and an even lesser degree, Grigorenko at 12th. I would say they were better than Nichushkin at that age and this draft being stronger than the 2010 and 2012 drafts.
