Nichushkin als failed to complete the bike hose lung capacity test, and was weak on the bike.
Watch the VIDEOS!
He didn't have the upper body strength or cardio performances of several others who tested.
And I only watched the videos of five guys!
Spin it as: "wow, imagine if he actually gets into shape this summer!!" if you want. But his height and weight alone ought not to fool anyone as to his fitness or lack thereof.
He is nooooooooooooooooooot NHL ready!
He said him self he wasn't ready for these kinds of test. He is a great prospect, and very close to be NHL ready at least.
And I think scouts are gonna say: "He didn't do better? Great, then he has lots of upside and chance to improve".
