Nikitin would be my choice as well.
An excerpt from my latest article:
Another player that could make an impact is young defenseman Nikita Nikitin. The 26-year-old very quietly put up 32 points in 54 games with Columbus last year. He was shipped to Columbus in exchange for Kris Russell.
Nikitin also had 95 blocked shots in his time with Columbus, but his problem will be all about opportunity. When healthy, James Wisniewski and Jack Johnson are the source of the Blue Jackets offense from the back end. Johnson is a very durable player, while Wisniewski is quite fragile. Nikitin could be worth a late round flyer because of the great numbers he put up with Columbus when given an opportunity.
