    I like him. But not as much as I like Nugent Hopkins, who is also a Sens fan.

    ESPN is making something out of nothing.

    But yes...

    Landeskog is a Sens fan, saw his first game in Ottawa while attending the Bell Capital Cup as an 11 year old

    RNH is a Sens fan, has been since Jason Spezza entered the league

    Larsson has ties to Ottawa, his coach is the scout we've leaned on most since 2008.

    Ottawa picked a decent year to do poorly in....for those that say it doesn't make a difference, I'm sure it probably does to an extent.

    Landeskog is canon. He's our future Toews. INTANGIBLES

    It doesn't hurt if he was a fan of another team. It can be an added bonus if he was already a fan of your team. Don't tell me you wouldn't be extra happy if Hall was already a fan of the Oil.

    According to the article, "the Senators were one of Nugent-Hopkins favourite teams growing up, largely because he’s a fan of Jason Spezza.'. To me, he's just being politically correct as he probably has similar replies for any of the bottom four teams that could pick him.

    Sens and Avs are both awesome teams - let's not fight. Not sure how the Ducks got involved though. I liked the *mighty* ducks nostalgically. Not a fan of the Anaheim Ducks.

    Thats what you think! We stole the core of your tank plans in Elliot to give you a goalie who's playing for his life in a contract, Anderson! Good luck outtanking US!! :D

    Will Sens pick Landeskog/RNH because 'favourite team' if they think Larsson/Couturier will be the best player of draft? No I guess.

    What do you think how much the 'favourite team' factor is?

    Yeah, I would say it's a non factor unless maybe if they think they're all equal.

    It's a bonus. That's about it. The media benefits more than the team does...but to say the team doesn't smile about it if he's the guy they want anyways....probably wrong. If I was a Sens fan growing up and I got picked there...I'd be on top of the world just a tad bit more if it was one of the other bottom feeders.

    Factor in Karlsson, Rundblad, Lehner, Silfverberg, Alfredsson....the guy would probably love to be a part of that. As far as I can tell, Landeskog is very very highly regarded in Sweden, among his peers. He'd fit right in and I'm sure he knows that....these kids do their research.

    Media in Ottawa when in interviews with Landeskog have already implied to him..."we want you". Which may mean nothing to the guys making the pick...but to the player at least he knows if they take him....the media won't question it....he'll be embraced from the get go.

    And yet, in his game in Ottawa - he raced to the bus apparently rather than staying to sign autographs. It's one thing to do that in Plymouth or Peterborough where, you aren't likely to be playing there next fall - but from what I saw in the 67s game thread, a bit questionable behavior for a prospect.

    If Landeskog ends up in Ottawa Pyke, you better not be the guy that has some bitter hatred for the guy every time he makes a mistake. Sometimes, you're reaching. I like RNH as much as anyone, but I like the fit with this guy quite a bit.

    Sorry, I have a habit of ignoring the one quoted poster these days.

    I retract my position on that issue.
