Right. Assuming we end up with a top 3 pick i would think that Yakupov would be the only guy that would most likely make the jump. Possibly in Grigorenko's case.

At the end of the day, if the Habs want to take that next step we have to do something to improve our C position. No idea how they are going to do it anytime soon though since there doesn't appear to be a solution on the UFA market and i can't see us being able to trade for that big center. Grigorenko may be the solution, but he's likely a few years out from being an impact top 2 C on a good team.
