Middle of the first round... I'd be stunned if he fell any further.

Calgary is probably the last team that needs to take that kind of risk (unless you are talking about their STL or PIT 1st rounders). They need to hit with their earliest pick and getting Monahan or Lindholm is the answer.

Might fall out of Top 10 because some teams are deadly afraid of taking Russians.. good ol' boy Canadian network of a lot of front offices. I think teams that pass on him will be making a mistake though.

I think he could slide like Grigorenko and Forsberg did last year. Most people had them top 5 picks and they ended up going #11/#12.

Depends if he gets to build up speed and the quality of the ice.

And if he's oiled up.

clean ice. from goal line to blue line build up zone he could probably make it around the far net and sputter out at the blue line.

I can't see him dropping out the top 15. Too much skill for someone not to take a chance on him even with the "Russian factor."

After the article from Russia, I'd suggest that he falls into the mid-20s.

I'm not really sure how ELC bonuses work...but if you look at the Oilers alone:

-Hall 6 out of 6 available
-Yakupov 3 out of 6 available
-Eberle 5 out of 6 available

I assume they get harder as year's gone on though...but I think this points to the fact that there could be some serious cash left on the table if a guy signed an ELC without any bonuses.

Nichushkin is projected as the number 8 prospect by Top Prospects. As far as how far he slides from that because of teams drafting to fill needs should be interesting.

Here is a full scouting report of the dynamic Russian forward:

I don't see how he can slide out of the top 10. For me he is easily a top 5 prospect and a blue chipper at that. Him and Malkin have similar draft year stats and I see a more physical Malkin with less puck skills in Nichushkin. I don't think the contract will be a problem. Let him develop in the KHL for two years and then bring him over just as Malkin did.

This really depends on some of the pre-draft interview process I think. If Nichushkin clearly articulates his intent to come over in 1-2 seasons, I expect he goes 5-8. If there is remaining uncertainty, then it'll get more interesting with the 15-20 range in a deep draft likely being the absolute worst case scenario of a risk vs. reward type pick.

I expect he goes to Carolina at 5 or any pick from 8-11. I would love for Philly to get a shot at him regardless of our need on defense. Too good to let him fall any farther.
