Factor in the possibilty of Hartikainen in top 6 and things change.

I can easily see Horcoff get more ES minutes than Gagner and maybe even RNH.
There is no denying that Yakupov will be a top 4 forward for us in a year or 2 but you cant ink him in top 6 playing the off wing right away..

IMO.. hel'll start on 3rd line.. at some point get demoted to 4th and might even watch a game or 2 up from PB before settling into the 2nd line by the end of the season.
Can you tell me the last time that happened to someone drafted first overall?

A team with almost no secondary scoring will not bury its arguably best natural goal scorer on the 4th line and in the press box.
