Didn't Galiev also say the day before the draft that the Oilers were taking him if he fell out of the 1st round? Not only did they pass on him 3 times in the 2nd round, but they didn't take him in the 3rd either.

I wouldn't put ANY stock into what a player says about teams that could be interested in him.

Galiev said what he did to get a team to take him in the 1st round, and no doubt Nichushkin is saying and doing the things he's doing the last couple of days in an effort to improve his draft stock as well. I personally don't think this changes anything. Tampa Bay, Nashville, or even Edmonton are no more likely to take him now with their 1st picks than they were two days ago.

If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
