People always say that, but to me, wings are a dime a dozen. It is the only thing that gives me pause with Yakupov.

If the difference is marginal, I'd take a stud defenseman or center over a wing. And for a team like Anaheim, who's weak at both of those cornerstone positions, it may make more sense to draft a guy like Murray.
