I haven't read anything about folks questioning Nichushkin's character. The two issues I hear about with him are:
(1) KHL. He's already committed there through 2015, and you can be sure he'll have KHL employers continuing to woo him after that.
(2) Hockey sense. He can put his head down and bull/dangle his way through people and look like Malkin, but can he think/pass like Malkin? I haven't heard anyone come out and say "He doesn't have hockey sense", but he hasn't used his linemates or shown enough yet to prove that he does have the vision and hockey sense.
