Actually all things being equal, the Oilers could use a center more then a winger. I rather have Yakupov then Galy but putting him(or Eberle) on the second line is not optimal use of their talents. All that being said I think the Oilers made the right choice, Galy might end up a better player but odds say Yakupov will be the better player.
