Why anyone listens to anything he has to say is beyond me.
Actually, Stauffer was the only media guy saying the Oilers would take Hall after the Memorial cup, every other media guy in the city was pumping the "big, right handed center" stuff. His flip coincided with Stu Mcgregor changing his mind after being a Seguin fan for most of the year.

The Yakupov stuff, who knows. It wouldn't have surprised me if there were serious internal discussions about passing on Yak to draft for need.
