Larsson is BPA but Edmonton is too tanktastic to give him up.
I'll settle for any of Hopkins, Couturier or Landeskog at #2 or #3.
Nugent-Hopkins gives us our greatest need, in a dynamic offensive talent. He reminds me so much of Pavel Datsyuk.
Couturier gives us a future 1-2 punch that could perhaps go toe to toe with some of the big boys in the league. Everyone knows the need for strength down the middle in this league. Its a prerequisite to challenge for a championship. Couturier is big, mean, and very skilled. He could be another Getzlaf or Staal. Sean probably steps in next season as our 2nd line center.
Landeskog fills another huge organizational need in a top line goal scoring left winger. He's also a potential future leader and physical presence. He could bring Spezza back to being a 90+ point player while bringing a lot of toughness to the team that could help establish a new identity in Ottawa with guys like Cowen, Smith, and Gryba coming in the future. Lando could be a Swedish Brendan Morrow/Shane Doan.
Its a WIN/WIN/WIN. These guys are all great.
My preference would be RNH.
