RNH has more skill, yes, is he as tough? No.
Not even close to want i am saying . Benn has skill too . Just not as much , but he brings other things we need right now

IF THIS IS true then Benn is most likely a point per game player who gives a physical two way play every game who has pretty much peaked. Yakupov is most likely going to be more valuable than that and probably will hit point per game in his first season. Couturier is a good two way center who will most likely get better but i see his projection to be similar to Benn's a two way center that scores at a point per game pace. I strongly believe Edmonton should keep all their first round picks as two way players are easier to find than natural goal scorers. Elite players can make some decent players look really good and Gagner will benefit greatly from that. Gagner i believe was projected to be a play making center so his style will probably fit in nicely. I don't feel Edmonton needs this ELITE two way center because they have enough elite fire power that a regular third line center scoring maybe 12-15 goals is more than enough.
You may be right . A two way player also help prevent goals . A 60 point Benn playing a good 2 way game may make up for the extra point Yakupov may score . Also i would rather a big tough 2 way center when we are in the play offs and goal are hard to score .

I am an Oiler fan that thinks we should trade one of the big 4 for more of a balance team . D man or a big #2 C . But where on earth did you come up with this ? If Yak did not have an injury his draft year he would have been the most sought after 1 overall in a while
