Nichuhskin tore it up for about three weeks. But he’s now on pace to score 0.5 points a game this season. He’s having an awful season.

Sounds like a bust to me.

At age 22 almost 23 he ought to be killing it over there, playing against inferior talent.

To compare to another dude who went back to Russia...

Nichushkin is something like maybe the 6th best player on his KHL team putting up only 0.5 points a game and isn't to be found on the first couple pages of the league's leaderboard for production. At the same age, Radulov was a point a game player in the KHL and was up amongst the league leaders in both goals and points.

But Nichuskin is a possession guy or whatever. Or he's just another 1st round bust for the Stars.

He'll be a lazier version of Tyler Pitlick at best.

Why anyone would want Nichuskin back is beyond me.

Todd is really dug in on this one for some unknown reason. He should be distancing himself from Russians.

Val has a horrible shot. Always along the ice, always slow, always right at the goalie.

Matt Nickerson assaulted a fan during a game in England, so he was suspended for 20 games and had his contract rescinded.

The most shocking part of that entire sentence is that there's hockey in England.

He probably got tired of being heckled with NICKERS OFF chants.

Pens now 13-7 since acquiring Oleksiak. They've gone from out of the playoffs to 4 points out of first place in that time.

I mean, 10% of the credit probably goes to Crosby and Kessel. 15%, maybe. But mostly it's all Oleksiak.

I actually don't mind Razor and Luds. But, I do miss Ralph sometimes.

I like Ludwig when he talks about the technical aspects of the game, or clearly illustrates what's different this year and what Hitchcock and Wilson are teaching the players. I think that's very interesting.
