Ilya Nikulin - All time Russian D

Where would you rank Ilya Nikulin all time on Russian defensemen? He is the best of his generation.

Excluding young guys who haven't reached potential, Nikulin is probably the best since Markov.
He's a really good player, but I think that says more about a lack of Russian D development than how great Nikulin is.

Because he loves it in Kazan.

I don't know about all-time, but he is our best d-man for maybe 5-6 years.) 3 times World champion, 2 times KHL champion, 2 times Russian league champion.
