I'm not buying the Oilers NOT drafting Yakupov first overall until I actually see it happening. Lost in all the madness that is Edmonton's defense/goalie issues is the fact they couldn't score last season, either. Yes, they were fine when the kid line was lighting it up, but more balance up front is also a team need.

Everybody preaches "best player available" all the time, but now suddenly the Oilers are supposed to pass? The one time where BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE makes the absolute most sense is when you're picking first overall. Then he really is the best. Not just best available, but best.
