The only player in everyone's top-10 (or so) that makes me leery is Valeri Nichushkin. It has nothing to do with his skill or personality, and everything to do with the "Russian factor". After Nikita Filatov and Nikolai Zherdev, I don't think we can risk taking this type of player at that point in the draft. The money the KHL is offering these guys to stay over is ridiculous, and if it were me, with the option to make twice as much at 19 in the KHL - as I would at 25 in the NHL - I'm staying home every time.

The same doesn't apply to Nikita Zadorov, mainly because he's already playing in the OHL ... but, we don't really maintain a need for that type of player.
