All this Edmonton interest in Murray is posturing IMO...they are putting the squeeze on Columbus. It's a game.

There's no way the Jackets are picking Yakupov...the Oilers are trying to force Columbus to move up to the number one spot.

Normally I would agree with those who might suggest that Columbus simply take Forsberg, their marbles, and go home. But they need to come away from this draft with a player ready to play opening night.

When one of the two NHL ready players is Russian, well, that changes the game entirely.
