I really think this 'Nichushkin bombed the combine' stuff is crap. I watched combine coverage and they were raving about him. Man among boys, etc. There is a lot of deleiberate misinformation being floated to throw teams off the track. It's poker.

One day, Nich is a threat to the top three, with half a dozen teams clamouring to move up to 4 to get him, the next day he's dropping out of the top 10 because some j@ckoff Sabre tweeter says he bombed an interview in his second language?

Same thing with Nurse. Bunch of rumours he's dumb, the day before he wins OHL scholastic player of the year- because he's so good at school despite being in a bus all weekend. Real dummy.

Nichushkin is not going to be there at 11 and neither is Nurse.

We should have tanked!
