With the #1 pick in the 2011 draft, Steve Tambellini stepped to the podium and selected Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the elusive and offensive centre from the Red Deer Rebels.  Nugent-Hopkins is the best set-up man to come along in a long awhile and while Taylor Hall was first to greet him on stage, it's not a stretch to think that Nugent-Hopkins will set up Magnus Paajarvi and Linus Omark in Edmonton next year.
