Honestly, I wouldn't pick Nichushkin but I'd be happy with any of the following, in order. Not that I wouldn't be happy with Nichushkin but I don't think we should risk a 'boom or bust' prospect and we all saw how far Grigorenko fell last year...

1. Jones
2. MacKinnon
3. Drouin
4. Barkov
5. Lindholm
6. Monahan
7. Nurse
8. Pulock
9. Zadorov
10. Ristolainen

I figure we'll be in the top-10... and even if we get a forward that give us the opportunity to trade another forward we have for a high-end defender who could step in right away. Unless the team completely tanks and/or wins the lottery I don't see Jones ending up on Philly. Pulock and Nurse wouldn't be bad defenders to take, though.
