I think it will ultimately end up being Columbus who gets the 1st pick followed by Winnipeg, Ottawa, Edmonton, Florida and Calgary.

I'd give almost anything for it to be the Jets though as I don't see them as a playoff team anyways.
I'm with you there. New franchise deserves a talent like that.

I really feel bad for the Flames. They're too good for lottery picks, not good enough for the playoffs.

I'd be willing to bet that Yakupov will not be drafted by the Flames.

I hope it's not Columbus, Phoenix or Winnipeg, because I am so totally indifferent on how those teams are doing.

Wouldn't mind being last...but I just think the young core will develop throughout the year and go on a run at the end of the season

Yakupov is getting on the C-Bus. I just hope he goes out West.

Did you know that Calgary have never drafted higher than sixth (although the Atlanta Flames drafted second during the franchise's first two years)?

3. He is the leader of the teams D in minutes playing nearly 25 TOI a night and plays against the team other teams best players every night i.e. the Ovechkins etc.

4. He is 21

5. You need to stop hating

Yes CBJ are a terrible team right now and most likely the worst team in the NHL, and I don't like Mason either.

But you have to consider that they are missing over 20 million dollars worth of players out of their line-up right now including Jeff Carter.

So I don't think they will be in the basement all year long. But this skid could hurt their chances @ the playoffs big time tough.

Unless Mason turns his game around, it looks to me like Yakupov will be heading to Columbus next season.

Sorry for getting him started fellas, this whole thread got out of hand. I was just legitimately wondering why he is so confident that Ottawa isn't finishing last.

He just....doesn't consider the perspective of others very well.

Or that he is confused in his defensive zone most of the time and by the way great job making assumptions

This, not sure if it's Columbus though. Just stay out of the eastern conference..
