Nichuskin is starting to really intrigue me. Could you imagine the battle of Russians in PA if we drafted him. You know he will come with everything he has when playing Malkin. Shoot some were even comparing to Malkin this year. I know that is high praise, and I am not buying into it, but it seems like he is going to be a special player. Also heard Rick Nash comparison being thrown out there(I have stated previously I am not a huge fan of these.) Even if Rist/Pulock/Zads/Mueller and other defenders are on the board and we pick him, I will love the pick.
Even with my expressed coveting of Nurse, I'm not a fan of trying to move up if it costs Read, given the depth of quality that's available. There have been very, very few slam-dunk stars at drafts, and many more busts. If Nurse can be obtained with a 2nd from next year and a 3rd/4th this year, that's fine.
