Unproven franchise forward
Unproven franchise defense.
They're equal in value imo.
However, Edmonton has RNH, Eberle and Hall as the same type of player as Yakupov (players with franchise potential) while they don't have any current dman, nor have any that seem to possess the potential to be a franchise dman. So, you'd be dealing from a point of strength to re-enforce a point of weakness.
Sure, Yakupov is a shiny new asset and he could be better than any of the current Oilers and you don't want to deal him without him even playing 1 game, but from a fantasy stand point it makes sense for the Oilers to do from a point of strength, to strengthen their d.
Hamilton, Klefblom, Marincin as a top 3. Probably spelt their names wrong, but that's your top 3 d at at 6'3, or taller. I believe Klefblom is 6'3. That's a massive, mobile d squad.
