A guy that hasn't been talked about too much is Nichushkin. Depending on who you believe, he's supposed to be the next Rick Nash, or to some degree, Malkin. Jump way up in the latest ISS ranking. His passport may scare some teams, but i can see him going high too.

Should be a very interesting draft. You may see more movement during the draft, as teams will feel their player will be available later, allowing other teams to move up to grab who they want. With greater depth, there may be more movement early, depending on who teams really want.

Multiple picks (like Columbus) would be outstanding.
I could be wrong, but I seem to remember reading he signed a 3 year deal to play in the KHL. If that's the case that adds to the Russian factor. He might be a great player, but if there are comparable options available I go with one of those.
