Nichushkin fell because it was either the NHL for him this year or back to the KHL for a year to honour his contract over there.

Regardless, Nichushkin was an obvious steal at #10 and Dallas will have an elite speed demon of a winger that I would have loved to see on the Oilers. A mistake not to draft him but MacT and the scouts can't always get things right... they are only human and sometimes the seemingly safer choices are easier to make.
