Centres/D are worth more than wingers. Edmonton also happens to need another top 6 C and a top pairing D, so it would give them exactly what they need.
If that were true then why were Hall and Yakupov taken number 1 overall while the other guys weren't?

You know what the most valuable thing in terms of prospects is? Goal scoring. You can't teach that. You can teach guys to play defense though, but you just can't teach that natural goal scoring ability. That's why the goalscorers generally go first on draft day, and defensemen can come from just about anywhere in the draft.
