A lot of Russian fans and experts are trying to say exactly that- get established in KHL and ONLY THEN go to NHL for the best chance / roster spot on NHL team (Tarasenko, Orlov). And if you look at Russian NHLers who are solid locks in the lineup these days- most of them have done exactly that.

Only Burmistrov and Kulikov are solid yet relatively average players out of CHL.
You are like a broken record.

By the way, there is much to be said for the development of Valentin Zykov this year, who has come a long way since moving to the QMJHL. He looks like a renewed player.

Whereas I'm still not terribly impressed with Nichushkin whose tunnel vision remains. Great skills, but selfish.

This kid has the skill set to become the best player in this draft IMO. He reminds me of Jagr at times. If he learns to distribute, he's going to be an absolute monster.

Is this tunnel vision also regarded as a lack of hockey sense? From what little I've seen of him he could be a star if he learned how to use his linemates better...but does he have that in him?

Hard to say. In the 5 SSS games recently he progressively was more intentional about using his teammates.

That being said, using his linemates didn't necessarily appear to come naturally to him. He made more than a few ill-advised passes.

1st assist: got the puck down low, skates it behind the net, and whips a quick wrap around which glances off the pad and goes straight to a teammate for a tap-in.

2nd assist: did some great work down low, very shifty; pivoting to give himself some room, cycles behind his back to teammate who walks it out and wrists to far side.

he looked very good today.

I really like Nichushkin: hes got very good size, good skating ability and hands for a big guy. Looked very good indeed yesterday. The potential is great imo.

That post is from June, when he was reportedly looking at coming over.
However, he signed his first KHL contract a few days before the Import Draft.

Reminds me of Rick Nash so much, imo he's a top 5 pick no question.

It depends. He won't get to NHL for 2 years after the draft. Sure 20 year is a perfect age to come to NA, but NHL team don't like not able to get players right after they draft them.

Does anyone think he'll follow a similar career path as Kuznetsov or Tarasenko? End up being picked relatively late in the 1st, polish his game for several years in the KHL(amidst rampant although probably baseless speculation he won't come over) only to end up as a top prospect in the league and (hopefully) do very well in the NHL?

I think Nichushkin has top 5 talent for sure. But I doubt he goes top 5.
