I'm not "shaking my head" at Cherry because he thinks Domi is a better prospect then Valeri, its why he thinks he's a better prospect.
The top 6 are the only players who really have an argument for being better prospects than Nichushkin. If he weren't Russian, it easily would've been a top 7 instead. And even Monahan and Lindholm are debatable as being better prospects. That argument at least makes a bit of sense.

Domi over Nichushkin...? Not even close. Nichushkin has him beat in just about everything outside of playmaking.
