But is the risk worth it when there are several other prospects in this draft with similar potential who don't have any risk? That's why he won't go top 5. I don't think he's going to be as good as Tarasenko either. Kuznetsov, who knows, we'll see how he does in the NHL when he comes over. Nichushkin is probably better suited to the NHL style of play, but Kuznetsov is more skilled.
