    OK, I'll go first...

    Yakupov. He seems to be the most exciting. Lots of hype, lots of enthusiasm, over the top celebrations...this guy seems to have IT. That special competitiveness that can lead to great mutli cat stats

    Hall. I don't like puttin him here, because I like RNH and Eberla waay better, but he has some serious desire as well, he plays hell-bent and WANTS to lead. Again, these lead to a better multi cat player.

    RNH. I think he has the better skill set and raw talent. He plays conservative so I think his best value is in points only.

    Eberle. I hate myself for putting him here. He is my favorite of the 4. The poise and composure that he shows is near the top of the league. He has the potential to be better than RNH and Hall offensively, and he may do it...but at this point, I think he is #4.

    Curious to see how the rest see him.....

    Let the debate begin!
    G: Hall/Yakupov
    A: RNH
    +/-: Hall/RNH
    PIM: Yakupov/Hall
    PPP: RNH/Eberle
    SOG: Hall/Yakupov
    Blks: Hall/RNH

    Hard to judge some of these... and a lot depends on time frame. Yak and RNH have the highest upside IMO but in a 1-2 year span I'd put both eberle and hall ahead of both. Hall probably hits the most categories for you and is a lw so would probably be my pick. If you're looking 3+ years I might roll with Yak.

    Short term:

    Long term:
    RNH (though fairly weak in peripherals)

    i don't know but I would rank RNH last as it's looking like he might have a glass shoulder(s) and it's affecting his shot and scoring ability.

    Overall, with the understanding that I think all will be actually fairly close points-wise most years...

    Yakupov - mostly likely to take a shit-ton of shots and throw a few hits around (getting a few dumb PIMs in the process)
    Eberle - seems he'll be the guy we all underestimate when all he does is produce
    Hall - There are going to be missed games due to his style (hence 3rd), but otherwise a gem
    RNH - I'm with Big Ev. The shoulder issue is a major concern, no matter how the Oilers paint it
