Not only is Yakupov one of the most exciting players in hockey from a talent and potential perspective, but with the Oilers icing one of, if not the games very best, first lines of Eberle, Hall and RNH, Yakupov can be expecting to capitalize on some very favorable defensive matchups.
Ha ha ha ha. I mean, yeah, optimism is great.

There's a few of lines, I think might be considered better, but not sure I would trade our first for many of them.

Benn-Seguin-Nichushkin
Toews-Hossa-Saad
Getzlaf-Perry-Beleskey

I think we are at least on par with:

Landeskog-Duchene-Iginla
Lucic-Krejci-Eriksson
Sedins-Vrbata
Backstrom-Ovechkin-Kuznetsov
Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Abdelkader
Kopitar-Brown-Williams

Something to consider:

Remember how badly our forwards dropped after Pronger left town?
Imagine how the breakouts would look with either Doughty or Keith.
