Also, it's simply terrible management to pass on the best player in a draft for need.

What if Yakupov goes on to dominate the league and ends up better than both Hall and Eberle?

Seems more logical to take the best player, let him develop for a couple years, and then make a move if you need a defenseman.

If he ends up the best Oiler in a few years you can trade someone else instead, you don't have that option if you just pass outright.
