Any drafted "prospect" that you'd take over RNH? (Read more)
 
Is there any NHL drafted player or prospect that has played less than 82 NHL games in the nhl right now that you would take over/wouldn't trade straight up for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins(62gms so far)? And if you would take someone else over him, why that player?

I'm not an oiler fan or an RNH fanboy, jus thought this would be a good poll.

bsmith14 12-05-2012 11:21 AM

The poll is closed for some reason..

To answer your question, no. As an Oiler fan Hopkins is the number 1 center and there aren't any drafted centers out there (less than 82 games played) that I would trade him for. I don't think your going to get many people saying yes. You might here a few cases for Kuznetsov, Tarasenko or Dougie Hamilton but I don't think any GM would trade RNH straight up for one of them.

Call me crazy, but I'd prefer Yakupov. More able to handle today's NHL, imo. He also has more leadership intangibles and such.

Same

CRSeven 12-05-2012 11:27 AM

Yes. Evgeny Kuznetsov.

bleedblue1223 12-05-2012 11:33 AM

Well:

Schwartz/D'Agostini-Backes-Oshie
Perron-Berglund-Stewart
McDonald-Steen-Tarasenko

or

Perron-Backes-Oshie
McDonald-RNH-Stewart
Steen-Berglund-Schwartz/D'Agostini

Don't ask such hard questions, I cant even make decisions on what our lines would be lol.

You would trade a 1st overall center who had the best 18 year old season since Crosby for a player who has yet to play in NA? Sasha is a great player, but I think he would need to prove himself in the NHL first.

You're exactly right, but there's just something about Kuznetsov; I think he's going to be an amazing player.

he was "on pace" to, but since he got injured,

Kane still easily holds that title.

72 points in 81 games as a rookie, easily trumps RNH's 52 in 62.

capitalsrock 12-05-2012 01:22 PM

Definitely Kuznetsov. Maybe Larsson,Granlund,Huberdeau,Hamilton

Fire Dumboer 12-05-2012 01:26 PM

Tarasenko or Yakupov.

Dolph Ziggler 12-05-2012 01:31 PM

Hard to pick between Tarasenko and RNH for me.

I wouldn't argue you either way.

ponder 12-05-2012 01:50 PM

I can't see taking any of Tarasenko, Galchenyuk, Larsson, Huberdeau, Murray, Hamilton, Rielly, Granlund, Baertschi, etc. over RNH, and I definitely can't see going with Kuznetsov, since he may never even come to the NHL. For me it's really down to RNH vs. Yakupov, and personally I'd side with RNH. If we include players eligible for the 2013 draft, it gets more interesting: RNH or MacKinnon?

gifted88 12-05-2012 01:58 PM

Nope, none that I can think of.

um 12-05-2012 02:51 PM

no. theres always potential for some prospects to be better but its unlikely, safe choice is RNH

Dr John Carlson 12-05-2012 03:19 PM

Tough choice between RNH and Dougie Hamilton, I'd lean more towards RNH. So no.

TheJuxtaposer 12-05-2012 04:29 PM

Simply, no.

Kane was 19 in his rookie season.

Currently, RNH > Yak so the answer is no.

Ceremony 12-05-2012 04:53 PM

On a needs basis as an Avs fan, I'd rather have a top end D prospect.

MastuhNinks 12-05-2012 05:02 PM

I prefer Yakupov as a prospect but I'd still take RNH on the Leafs based on positional need.

That's such a nit-picky thing, come on. Kane couldn't help being a few months older than RNH.

The point I'm trying to make is that he was born in the September to December range, which means he likely has an extra year experience playing hockey compared to players born in the January to August range. So he wasn't "an 18 year old rookie" if you know what I mean.

One might argue that Skinner's rookie season was better if you include 18 year olds not drafted first overall though.

SirPaste 12-05-2012 05:28 PM

As a Blues fan I love Tarasenko but Id probably trade him straight up for RNH, with our depth at wing we should be alright and we can move Berglund to the 3C, man that would be sick.

5RingsAndABeer 12-05-2012 06:12 PM

Voted No. I think RNH will be the best out of the Oilers young 5.

Yea guys like RNH, Patrick Kane, Giroux, Briere, Ray Whitney, and Karlsson are definitely not able to handle the rigors of the NHL.
