This makes no sense at all.
You say that drafting Yakupov over Murray was a mistake then followed that up by saying, look where we finished this year. You are aware that Murray was injured the whole season, aren't you? So how would he have helped out this season?
Yakupov was the BPA by a wide margin, it was kind of a no brainer to take him and he has done nothing since being drafted to prove the Oilers wrong.
If anything, Galchenyuk should have been the 2nd choice and Murray a distant 3rd.
