Valeri Nichushkin sounds interesting, a big winger that will get into the dirty areas..the perfect Russian winger for Grigorenko? ISS rankings actually have him at #2 but I think the Russian factor would probably drop him a bit come draft time.

I know us picking that high is unlikely though. This is really the perfect season to tank, the season is flying by and the draft seems really strong.
I wouldn't even take Nichushkin at 4, for reasons already outlined + the fact that, as far as I know, there has been no indication of if or when he would come to NA. Barkov and Monahan would be my top 2 choices in that range (at least one of them is guaranteed to be there, maybe even both if Drouin goes 3rd).
