Am I the only one that wants no part of Valeri Nichushkin? It's not the Russian factor because he said he wants to come to NA, but his numbers are just underwhelming. 7 points in the U18s is decent, but that was just 4th among Russian forwards. 2 points in 6 games in the WJC is nothing spectacular. 6 points in 18 KHL games is decent. 8 points in 9 MHL games(the league below the KHL) is nothing spectacular either. There have been a number of guys that put up far over a PPG in their draft year in the MHL and had impressive U18s, and did not receive nearly the hype that he's getting. Is a couple inches and size really that special? I don't think so.
