Top offense doesnt make a team
Oilers have so many missing pieces even if the pix turn out better than I expect
Dont forget that Pittsburg has won only one cup with Malkin and Crosby
Yakupov was performing over 2 PPG before his injury. Taking Galchenyuk 1st, who was injured the whole year would have been too risky. Yakupov was the consensus at Draft Day.
Hall has a better PPG then Seguin in all three seasons so far. Also this year he has 16 points in 16. I would say Hall and Seguin are on par.
RNH had a very good rookie season and is #1 C. I do not see what is wrong with the pick. You could argue that you like Landeskog better, but the Oilers are definitley better of with RNH.
And Malkin and Crosby are still in the mid 20s. They have a lot more time to win more then "only" one cup
