[QUOTE=LegionOfDoom91;64061625]Well I understand it from an organization stand point also. While he's playing against men you also run the risk of losing him over there. The longer he stays there the more opportunities his KHL team gets to convince him to stay by offering him crazy money and other benefits that the NHL can't provide. Then you have the risk of Nichuskin himself getting too comfortable over there and wanting to stay home.

I can't really see the latter happening but the former definitely will and for that I understand why the Flyers wouldn't take a chance on him unless they know they can get him over here before his contract ends.

Nichushkin is an incredible talent and I would be happy if the Flyers drafted him but I wouldn't be pissed off if they didn't also.[/QUOTE]

If he is still there when they pick, that will be one very hard decision.
