    The "Official Nail Yakupov Thread" is getting cluttered with posters speculating where Yakupov will be drafted and who he'll look good with from the NHL.

    Lets use this thread for the purpose of discussing where Yakupov will end up and who he will play with and keep the "Official Nail Yakupov" to posts regarding his skill, accomplishments and other relevant news on Yakupov.

    Cheers

    Enjoy Oiler and Sens fans :D

    Either Columbus or Winnipeg, Winnipeg looks awful as a team and Columbus has no goaltending.

    Whoever acquires the Leafs' first rounder :sarcasm:

    Seriously, I think that he'll go to one of Florida, Winnipeg, Ottawa or Phoenix. But it's still a little too early to tell.

    Have a feeling its a western team.
    I think Calgary. Not that they have a Bad team right now, but i think they stay middle of the pack and Sutter decides to blow it up a bit.

    Calgary - Yakupov
    Ottawa - Grigorenko
    Winnipeg - Murray
    Columbus - Galchenyuk
    Phoenix - Ebert

    It won't be Ottawa. Seriously.

    They have a chance with two horrible goalies, a young defense with 2 over the hill veterans. The Ottawa Senators are a good bet to allow the most goals this year.

    Columbus because I don't think Montreal will suck enough for Yakupov, just Grigorenko, Ebert or Murray.

    The Winnipeg Jets

    9 - Hull to Kane
    10 - Hawerchuk to Yakupov!!!

    Also how sick would this line look Yakupov-Scheifele-MacLean

    You seem to be hard-set on this. Who finishes below Ottawa? And why don't you think they'll finish last?

    Columbus, Winnipeg, and Phoenix don't have a #1C like Ottawa does, and their goaltenders aren't as capable of stealing games in the fashion that Anderson can. I'm not saying Ottawa will finish higher than them, but it's certainly not inconceivable.
     
  21. Anderson and Auld? horrible goalies?

    ...the russian army.

    In all seriousness my guess would be Jets, Sens, Yotes or my very own Oilers.

    And why wouldn't Ottawa be capable of finishing last, that d is just awful in their own zone.
