Yakupov Sliding?

Blue Jackets beat guy @aportzline has Columbus passing on Yakupov at No. 2. So if Edmonton goes with Murray, Yakupov could fall to three.

Mods feel free to merge this into anything that makes sense.

Meh... last minute draft talk, I wouldn't read too much in to it. If Yakupov isn't picked #1, it'll look silly in a couple of years. Like most of the unexpected draft day drops usually do (Esposito not included).

Marlo Stanfield 06-22-2012 11:15 AM

I think Edmonton is going with Murray 1st overall

That's Ryan Murray's brother

WJG 06-22-2012 11:16 AM

Columbus is making the right decision.

For every Tyutin or Nikitin, they've had a Zherdev or Filatov.

Avs44 06-22-2012 11:16 AM

The fact that CBJ passes on him if he falls to them means nothing IMO, since I'm pretty sure Edm will take Yakupov 1st overall

Wilch 06-22-2012 11:16 AM

If this does happen (assuming EDM passes too) Montreal fans should buy a few hundred dollars worth of fireworks and champagne and get ready to celebrate.

The Podium 06-22-2012 11:16 AM

If Yakupov slips to 3 apparently MTL isn't interested in him either so hell end up in New York or Toronto:laugh:

Azkals 06-22-2012 11:18 AM

Who will the CBJ take if EDM takes Murray?

Looking like Forsberg according to their beat writer

MisterT 06-22-2012 11:22 AM

If Edmonton passes, then expect hell to break out as Burke, Snow and Bergevin all make offers to get #2.

My money is on #2 and a 3rd to Toronto for #5 and Luke Schenn.

Then Columbus gets Filip Forsberg with #5.

His Beardliness 06-22-2012 11:23 AM

Oleee ole ole ole!

Agreed, but I think many other GMs would be interested as well. Would probably be a long wait between #1 and #2 picks if Yakupov doesn't go first as everyone does their last ditch effort to move up. If Yakupov doesn't go first I will guarantee he goes 2nd.

Kessely Snipes 06-22-2012 11:25 AM

This pre draft talk is amusing.

IMO the only way Edmonton doesn't take him is if they trade the pick.

At that point he'll drop out of the top-5, Toronto isn't interested either :sarcasm:

Guys, let's not give Habs fans hope here. It's just mean lol.

Yes. Yakupov definitely doesn't make it to #3, someone would trade up, even if it's just Montreal and then Columbus gets Forsberg and a pick or something.

The problem with Columbus trading #2 to Toronto is that the Islanders may take Forsberg if it goes Murray, Yakupov, Galchenyuk before them. Edmonton runs the same risk of not getting Murray if they trade down to #5.

Laugh all you want, but that is quite a possibility. Our headscout has indicated that it was a major concern if a young player has already have concussions in their junior career.

Pyromaniac3 06-22-2012 11:31 AM

It would be incredibly stupid if he does not get picked by the time it's Montreal's turn to pick. This guy outscored Stamkos for God's sakes.

SirPaste 06-22-2012 11:37 AM

They say this about the consensus #1 every year, never happens

Seriously if that happens. I'll cry.

Beerfish 06-22-2012 11:40 AM

If the Oilers take Murray I can see a lot of movement after that pick. I would be surprised if some team did not make a big enough offer for Columbus to trade down. I would even guess it could be the Leafs.

If this happens, it's no wonder that the Oilers and Jackets are the two worst organizations in hockey.

With that being said, i think the Oilers take Yakupov. All these media guys are just speculating and are just trying to stir up drama IMO. Oilers management are extremely tight lipped, nobody knows but them and the scouting staff IMO.

Yakupov never had a concussion.

SpezDispenser 06-22-2012 11:44 AM

As a Montreal fan, I'd be soiling myself right now in excitement.
