I think it is within the realm of possibility, but barely. The center position is ludicrously overfull, he has limited experience playing mens hockey (this kept Stamkos and Crosby off olympic teams, so better believe it will be a factor for Nuge), and he really hasn't delivered any prolonged period of exceptional play to recommend himself among these elite talents. Especially given that he is coming off an injury-weakened year, heading into a late-start rehabbing an injury... his odds are low, low, low. HOWEVER, I refuse to write him off entirely - he will need an INSANE first half to make it. Something close to 3 PPG should do it
