Hall and Yakupov probably wont mix on a line together. They both want the puck at all times. Put a playmaker with each:

Hall----xxx----Eberle
xxx----RNH----Yakupov

This young Russian star in the making enjoys the outdoors and fitness. He also likes long walks on the beach and reading Harry Potter books.

Well hopefully Horcoff's #10 doesn't get retired to the rafters so Yakupov can have it.....

Our PP is gonna be absolutely sick. U got Eberle waiting on the left side, and Rnh and Yakupov doing the give and go on the halfboards downlow
Think about it, teams will have to adjust to either RNH doing the set up on the boards, if that doesnt work, he switches with YAK and set him up up for the cannon.

AHHH, every one hates gags and I don't know why?
A line with Hall and Eberle should produce no matter who centers them. I can't see a reason not to try Hall-Gagner-Eberle and someone-RNH-Yakupov, at least at first.

He does this every year. He just wants to keep the Oilers in the news this summer and it will be extra hard since Yakupov is the consensus number 1.

Should he trade it for anything less than a top 10 NHL d-man or thinks he can pass Ryan Murray on to the fanbase as the saviour then he might as well go into hiding. Rexall will get burned to the ground.

Thanks for posting this. I adore this kid now, and I really want him on the Oilers. Like, yesterday. So many good things I can talk about coming from this small clip.

I think we really have to look at moving Hall to C at this point. Him and Yakupov seem to make as much sense together as Nuge and Eberle. Everyone has their lineups, but here's mine if things remain as they are now:

Harski-Hopkins-Eberle
Yakupov-Hall-Hemsky
Smyth-Horcoff-Paajarvi
Jones-Belanger-Eager
Petrell/Hordichuk

Dunno how the new guy will like the left side, but that looks like a pretty special forward group to me

Edit: Realized there's no Gagner there. I guess he's going away for a Dman? Sure, we'll go with that!

The pressure on Ryan Murray if we trade this pick down and draft him would be so crippling, he wouldn't be able to play here.

I hope not. Tambo really isnt letting it go though. Although it is his duty to get offers for the pick and consider them, it will be a travesty if this opportunity is traded for anything short of steven stamkos/crosby/giroux/malkin.

Agreed! He'd be begging for a trade before the end of his rookie season

Well, if we got him for the awesome goal celebrations, and Smyth for the hair, what is the point of even having Jones on the team anymore?

Gagner better be be counting his lucky stars, he just might be centering two 1st overall picks next year. If he doesn't break 50points there truly is no hope for him.

A bonus for Yakupov that is that he spent last offseason training with THE Gary Roberts as well as part of Team Biosteel with some guys like Cammilleri, Stamkos, Skinner, Seguin, etc!
Eberle will also be training there this summer. Here's to hoping that becomes EPICLY AWESOME.

If Gagner plays all season with Hall and Eberle and doesn't muster up 50 points he should rethink the idea of being a professional hockey player.

@Koto

Loving those lines. Hart-RNH-Yakupov IMHO with Hall-Gagner-Hemsky IIRC they had some pretty good chemistry.

I don't see how Tambo could pass on Nail. He is easily the BPA regardless of need and Tambo is working for a contract.

Now we just have to think of ways of improving our defence.
