As talented as Nicushkin is, I don't see anyone using a first round pick on a guy signed for 3 more years in Russia. Kinda like Kirill Petrov in 2008, second ranked European, but didn't go till the third round due to contract status. Due to an ill mom, signed another 2 year contract in the summer. Meaning the earliest he plays his first NHL game, he'll be 24 or 25.
