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.
I think it would require an unreal package to get the #2 pick if Yakupov is on the board.

In the meantime, I say keep on going like this....force Edmonton to pick Murray at #1 if they want him. If a deal is made to flip picks, I still think it would be of the "change of scenery" type...everyone throws in a bunch of players who could use a change of scenery, and no one loses face in either direction.
