Actually, given management's verbal on trying to find a potential top 6er with a power forward game and frame, I would say Nichushkin has to be right there with Monahan for the top guys in our range.
He's an incredibly intriguing player. He has all the tools of a Jaromir Jagr and I think he will give every team that passes him nightmares for the next 20 years. Maybe the Russian factor isn't such a huge concern for us, considering we have Yak as our ambassador?
In any case, I would be very very happy with Nichushkin. I'd still rank him behind Monahan and Lindholm for who I would want to see us select, but I think his ceiling is higher than both of theirs. The top end of this draft is absolutely ridiculous. I honestly can't recall a draft that had this many guys of this high a quality in the time I've been really following prospects (since 2001).
