The reason Nichushkin is left out is because he plays in a lower Russian league. I'm not saying he isn't going to be a very good player (his play at the WJC and the Subway series showed he has serious talent), but nobody knows what he wants to do. He had an opportunity to showcase himself and play in North America and he turned it down. Usually, that's a warning sign right there. With that being said, he has stated that he wants to play in the NHL, so at least there's some acknowledgement there. The biggest issue though is that there doesn't seem to be a time frame as to when he would want to come over.
