Yakupov or Grigorenko in a habs jersey next season? It seems to me like it's against the team's philosphy.
Yakupov is a late birthday and head and shoulders above the rest, he will definitely be in the NHL next October.

I think Murray might be also, most of the others probably won't but some teams(Columbus) love to rush prospects.
