I see the main contenders as (sometimes out of position linemates):

Columbus (Nash-Carter-Yakupov)
Edmonton (Hall-RNH-Yakupov)
Phoenix (Turris?-Hanzal-Yakupov)
Ottawa (Zibanejad-Spezza-Yakupov)
Winnepeg (Kane-Burmistrov-Yakupov)
Florida (Huberdeau-Weiss-Yakupov)

Don't forget Robin Lehner who looks to be the 'tender of the future for the Sens. I think they will be alright once they get their offensive game rolling...Any one of Yakupov ,Grigorenko and Forsberg would look great in the capital!

In what way has Edmonton played a lot better than Ottawa thus far?

Yes, I'm quite certain that Ottawa will be better than 5 or more teams this year.
One of the main reasons the Oilers stank the last couple of years is that they were badly hit with the injury bug.

Ottawa did belong in the lottery last year, they went on a fire sale at the trading dead line and got unlucky their goalie got hot and singly handed won them number of games.

If you want to read about Karlsson's "bad defensive game", go to any forum on HFboards, take your mouse and randomly click on the page, and you will have an entire library of literature focusing on Karlsson's defensive woes at your disposal.

I don't recommend watching Sens games though. You might be disapointed.

Can you support your claim?

"Obviously, goaltending was the biggest part of it," added Carvel, who also gave credit to the work of Ryan Shannon, Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson, who he says is a "tremendous" penalty killer.
His ex-Asst. coach was not making this up.

Dubnyk can put up a .969 save percent? Wowow.

I gotta say it's between Columbus and Ottawa, and really hope it's not Ottawa.

Don't wanna see Nail that much in the future.

Montreal badly needs a player like him. Been way too long since we had an offensive superstar.

It's posts like these that make people hate on Karlsson so much. Most Ottawa fans 'overrate' him and most other fans bash him because of this. He's an excellent offensive defenceman (arguably top 5 in the league at generating offence) but he's far from solid defensively. He CAN be good defensively but he's very inconsistent in that respect. That doesn't mean he can't be solid and consistent defensively in the future.

He also isn't our best PKing defenceman. I would put at the very least Phillips ahead of him.

Back to the subject at hand...I could see Columbus, Winnipeg or Montreal getting Yakupov. I'm hoping that Winnipeg gets him because I don't want Montreal to have him and Columbus is a ****hole of a franchise right now. I still can't believe they traded Voracek and their 1st round pick (Couturier) for Carter. I know some people might have thought it was a good trade at the time, but I don't think Carter fits in in Columbus at all.

I just hope it won't be Columbus or Ottawa. These teams are just scary bad.

Sidney Crosby got drafted by a scary bad team.

Hell, if Yakupov goes to someone else it means that team was on an even worse level of scary bad.

Ottawa is ONLY scary bad DEFENSIVELY.

They have been scoring more goals than most except a handful and that should continue as long as guys like Spezza, Alfredsson, Michalek etc are healthy. PP is deadly in like the top 3.

You know Karlsson is gonna keep on breakingout.

with galchenyuk's injury he'll probably fall to mid first round, with them playing on the same team don't be surprised if a team tries getting both.

It would be the most bizarre thing seeing the Senators draft a Russian in the first round if they win they get the first pick.

With the first overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft, the Montréal Canadiens are proud to select from the Sarnia Sting, Nail Yakupov.
