Also, this is tough to admit cause I am not a fan of the Oilers, but it woulda been kinda cool seeing him play on the Oilers and play with those smaller skilled guys nightly.
Most Oilers fans are happy with the way Nurse has played, but there's a few fans that have a grudge against Nurse for some reason and continuously trash him on the Oilers boards and pump up Nichushkin like he's the next Lindros. This is why Nurse backers seem really bitter towards Nichushkin. Personally I think they're both great prospects that both fill a major need and I'll leave it at that and support Nurse all the way. A Nichushkin-Gagner-Yakupov line would've been fun to watch though.
