You're moving from a flawed premise. Edmonton doesn't do anything other than draft Yakupov if they believe he is a franchise winger and Murray is "only" a 2-3 defenseman.

Either they are lower on Yakupov, or significantly higher on Murray.
Until he can improve his foot speed and avoid being a healthy scratch on one of the worst defensive teams in the league, Schenn is just another Coke machine on skates. Only on these boards could he be considered otherwise.

There is little to no basis for thinking the Oilers are lower on Yakupov or significantly higher on Murray. Yakupov is by far and away the consensus number 1 and Murray is bouncing all over people's lists. The Oilers wanted Murray when they thought they were going to pick 2, they won a lottery and the world changed.
