What I don't get is, if Edmonton is going to pass and draft an 18 year old d-man, only to let CBJ trade the #2 for a nice return, why doesn't Edmonton just trade the #1 for a d-man they want, like Yandle (if he's truly available)? What about looking into Weber? I don't know how valuable GMs find Yakupov, but it seems silly for Edmonton to pass and draft an 18 year old d-man so that the team below them can cash in on their pick. Why not just cash in on it yourself?
