I don't think it would have been ballsy at all. The Edmonton media were all reporting the Oilers had decided on Murray, that Stu MacGregor wanted him, and that the decision to take Yakupov came from higher up the food chain. Tambellini has always stated that when it comes to the draft, Stu gets the final say. Take it for what it's worth though, mere speculation, but many believe the decision came from Katz/Lowe.

Now taking Galchenyuk, that would have been ballsy. Still not disappointed with the Yak pick given the options available.
