If he could play center, there is no doubt that he would be a great #2 center. Just think about it...
prospects are king on hf. realistically, while kuznetsov can play center, he would not be remotely ready for 1st line center defensive coverage on a cup challenging team as a nhl rookie. yak would only make it worse as a rookie.
if you are expecting the capitals to attempt to compete for a champioship they would realistically only be able to use one of kuz and yak. johansson in nhl career season 3 and 4 is more suited for playoff contribution than yak in season 1 and 2.
