How do you know Nichushkin wouldn't be better than those guys? I mean, I highly highly doubt he'll ever be as good as Hall or Yakupov, but who's to say he doesn't get better than Eberle or Perron? I have no doubt he'll be better than Hemsky in a couple years. And what if you move Hall to center permanently?

You don't turn down Nichushkin just because you have winger. Sharks have Thornton-Couture-Marleau-Pavelski at center but there is no way I'd turn down Mackinnon because of that.
