He sounded like they would be bringing him along slowly, so I fully expect Yakupov to get the Seguin treatment, playing in the bottom six with some second unit pp time.

I see Oiler fans consistently penning Whitney into the bottom paring with scrubs like Peckham, Potter, etc. Again, it wouldnt surprise me to see Whitney get preference over J. Schultz in just about every situation. Look for Whitney to get a top four role, and Schultz to be stuck in the bottom pairing with some pp time.

If Shawn Horcoff gets even a sniff of pp time, we will know that it is business as usual and that Krueger is Renney, Finkle is Einhorn.
I wouldn't be shocked to see Yakupov get "Horcoffized" for this year

Smyth-Horcoff-Yakupov

Gives Hemsky more offensive linemates
