Is going to be an interesting week.
Also, and I think this is a big factor, is Nich's hockey sense. We love to draft guys whose biggest strength is hockey sense (Faulk, Murphy, Boychuk and Sutter for example).
His hockey sense is
to be his caveat. His fatal flaw. Now, personally, I think that if it were that big of an issue and Nichushkin was the next coming of Artuykhin (sic), he wouldn't be rated as one of the top talents in this draft.
But it could be a factor in us drafting him (as well as the Russian thing).
