That's the biggest difference between MPS and Nichushkin. MPS never showed any power in his game. Nichushkin barrels through guys.

As for what you just said. Ironic isn't it? A Canadian version of that very same player came by about 10-11 years ago - played the exact same style, producing "highlight reel goals" because of "skating and power". You forgot to mention world-class hands/skill that contributed to it. His name is Rick Nash.

I'm not really a fan of Rick Nash. In my mind one of the more overrated, overpaid players in the league. But a lot of people recognize him as a superstar in this league. I'd be happy to land one of those at #7.
