As far as the Oilers apparently inviting Yakupov/Murray/Grigs/Forsberg/Reinhart... if they are still that up in the air about who they want at #1 then I think this draft could be a real ****show from the Oilers brass.

On the other hand, maybe this is part of their elaborate scheme to tempt teams into sending them more enticing trade offers by making teams think they are truly undecided amongst a half dozen top prospects. Are the Oilers that cagey and Machiavellian? I doubt it... I'd chock it up to dithering and the Tambo personality trait of overcomplicating simple decisions.

Pick Yakupov and be done with it.
Well said.
