If the Ducks draft #1, I suspect they may actually pass on Yakupov in favor of Murray. I could also see them trading down and drafting a center if they got the right asset for the pick.
I would think that any team picking #1 would take the BPA. I doubt it will be like 2002 when we drafted Nash.
If we get #1, we should draft the BPA (currently Yakupov/Grigorenko). If we're lower, we should look to draft Murray or another defenseman.
