Seeing as how you're a Caps fan, (lets say hypothetically the Oilers land 1st overall) what would you think about 1st overall for Alzner and one of your 1st rders? Russians seem to be the big thing in WAS (Reagan is rolling over in his grave right now), Yakupov certainly seemed to have chemistry with Kuznetsov, is that fair value?
It's probably alright value wise. But it'd be a huge step back for the Capitals as a team. Alzner a rock something the Caps have been waiting for since Ovechkin arrived.
The Capitals rebuild was a lot like the Oilers currently is going. For years the Capitals didn't have the defense and had the forwards and had to wait for Green, Carlson, Alzner, Orlov and Schultz to develop. So I don't really see them dealing defense now that it's finally decent.
With Hall, Nuge and Eberle others the Oilers in a lot of ways doing the same thing waiting for Klefbom,Marincin, Gernat whoever else to develop.
It didn't work out great for the Capitals hopefully it does for the Oilers. When you have elite players wasting there prime is painful
