It seems pretty obvious that it will be Yakupov.
Hartikainen has been very good in OKC. He shows some real flashes of ability around the net. He's like Dustin Penner with an attitude. I do think he's going to have some solid 20 goal seasons in his career. He can't carry the offense on his own but he compliments skill very well from what i've seen. In saying that he's playing bottom 6 if i'm coach by far and away most nights at this point. I just mean to say a top 6 role isn't beyond him and he could probably do pretty decent in stretches i'm thinking.
