Interesting to see if the R factor comes into play.
I would have a hard time thinking a team would take Nichushkin in the top 4. Nothing against his talent, it's just that the other 4 (Jones, Mac, Drouin, Barkov), are also elite talents, but there are less to no worries about them staying in the KHL. Doesn't seem worth the risk.

Now if your're picking in the teens and interview the kid and think you have a chance at him coming over in a few years (like Tarasenko), I think a lot would roll the dice.
