In a way this also forces their hand a bit. If they really like him, odds are they can't trade down too far or risk losing him. They want him...take him #1 and let the chips fall where they may. On the other hand, if he is that good and makes for a tough choice for Edmonton I feel a whole lot better about him as an option at #2 for CBus
I know it won't be popular but in the event Edmonton did take Murray, I still think the CBJ should consider trading down a couple slots if they could get a nice asset or two. However, I'm not sold on Yakupov being a franchise player.
