Draft is over .. PB was a stretch but players new to the system are not always thrown straight into the fire..
We all cry about how we rushed Gagner ... Even he on a pretty crappy Oiler team spent portion of a season on the 4th line.. As did Hemsky ... and most recently Paajarvi.
They are no 1st overalls but were high picks.
Seguin and Duchene have been 3rd liners as well..
This team is not built around Yakupov.. Kruger would have said the same about everyone... He would want everyone on his team to score as many goals as they can..
