I would take Yaks #1, but it's not like Murray is a stiff, and your defensive core isn't exactly the greatest thing since sliced bread. And if you guys miss out on Justin Schultz, it's pretty much slim pickings and as Dreger said yesterday, there's a lot of pressure on Tambo/Lowe to improve things on the defensive side if they head into next year with the same D pairings they had last year.
hey we can always make a deal with BOS for that bum Hamilton.
In 2yrs when we are closer to being a contender the value of Yakupov would not be any lower then now. We should be able to get a decent Dman for one of Hall or Yakupov then.
This draft is not about next season and Murray would not be a clear cut best Dman of this class in 2 - 5 yrs.
