He is big and strong and fast but I'm worried he won't be a prolific scorer or elite passer- the upside is there but I don't like the risk on him.

I wouldn't be any more worried about nichushkins game translating that any other top picks. You never know with any of these guys until they hit the NHL. Nichushkin could be amazing or a flop. Same with Mack, drouin, barkov,

I just really hope the forward we leave this draft with is Lindholm. I think barkov, drouin, Mack, and nichushkin all have way more potential than him. Just my two cents. I see an A level of forward prospects which is drouin, Mack, barkov and nichushkin.
Then I see a B level which is monahan, Lindholm, lazar
