They paid the other team, not the player, and he's not happy about the change. I'm not saying that he definitely leaves, but I certainly think that the move to Dynamo increases, not decreases, the potential for him to come to NA sooner rather than later.

When we were talking about picking 5-8, the risk associated with Nichushkin made it worth a debate, but when you're selecting 11th, the talent of the player trumps the location of his development.

If Nichushkin slid to 11, which I think is extraordinarily unlikely, I'd take him over any of the reasonably available players not named Nurse. Nurse I'd debate and because of need, probably take, but no way I take a less talented player just because of the certainty associated with their development location.
