Yakupov for Murray + NYR 1st (addresses Oilers big need plus get a premium back in deep draft)

MPS for Erixon (Enigma F for Enigma D... again addresses Oilers big need for something that Oilers have lots of)

Khabibulin + 2nd for Mason (Khabi is gone anyway at end of year so it is a 2nd for Mason... good change of scenery trade and he is at least a better backup option than Danis or Bunz or Roy next year)

I say good job. Not an easy trade to make but Murray-Schultz is a top pairing for many years... Yakupov may have never been the guy behind RNH Eberle Hall 2013 top pick and Gagner
Mason is Terrible and Not an NHL goalie, any trade where you get him isn't good.
