Check out Drouins highlight reel and you'll see the difference, Drouin can beat you from the corner, from the point, from behind the net, streaking in from Center ice, and he regularly makes ridiculous passes. There are videos of him racing down the ice, single handedly beating 3-5 guys, and potting a goal.

With Nichushkin its more like "what a sick move outside", "great drive to the net", "ok, yeah he beat him again outside", "wow, another power move outside?", "hmmm.. Let me guess".

Thank God NHL scouts don't use YouTube to pick prospects.
