What do you guys think about Valeri Nichushkin? 6'-4", 196 lbs with skill? I would be EXTREMELY happy if we get him, plus with his size he could be ready immediately or in 1 more season.
I don't see why we would take him unless we are drafting #7-15. There's no point in taking the risk with the Russian factor with so many great prospects in this draft. Also, he just signed a 3 year extension with his KHL team before the season. I don't think he is thinking about coming to the NHL anytime soon. Guys like MacKinnon, Barkov, and Monahan could all be ready within one season as well.
