Both players have size and potential and oiler fans need to get off the hump about drafting drafting drafting. We need to sort out a few things and one thing we are missing are FW over 6 feet tall. The more I see Yakupov the more I wish we had taken the 6-4 center Montreal took. Both players are projected to be second line players and bring something to the game that the oilers need.

But I guess Oiler fans want to spend the next 20 years drafted players and not making any real moves. We draft a Power forward in this draft he will need development, almost all PWF do. I do not see the oilers being in position to draft Barkov--who is the next powerforward in the draft?
Isles also need to add size/toughness to their top 6, which is why Snow has ignored Nino and his agent's request for a trade. Nino has no leverage to force a trade and Snow's team needs his chippy, physical play.

Boyes is a ufa this summer. Moulson is a ufa next summer. Imo the Isles would like one of Strome/Brock Nelson to develop into a 2nd liner and push Frans Nielsen down to the 3rd line.
