Info on Tatars in case anyone is interested about Yakupov's background.


edit: Interesting little tidbit here.. Sound familiar?

"The group as a whole accepted the ethnonym "Tatars" (finally in the end of 19th century; although the name Bulgars persisted in some places; the majority identified themselves simply as the Muslims)"
Thanks for the links and posts Lay Z Boy! Good stuff...very interesting indeed.

I think people should relax, it's just the media spinning the wheels...it's what they do, and they are good at it. Sorta like mass hypnosis.

I heard Staffer say the other day that the Oilers should seriously consider the Russian who was injured most of the year and played a couple of playoff games (last name started with a G....sorry, cannot remember the name Grigorenko or that other guy Galychyniuk (sp)).

Please forgive my ignorance and somebody......

HELP ME OUT HERE!

No problem, Dorian. Might as well learn a little bit about Nail and where he's from, he could be the face of the franchise soon.

edit: Galchenyuk was out for the year with a torn(?) ACL. Grigoenko played through an ankle injury for a while I believe.

Matheson is a respected writer. He's entitled to his opinion just as any of us are. It's stupid to call him stupid because you disagree with him.

I'm just getting fed up with the eastern media constantly thrashing Edmonton and then HNIC Hot Stove saying why would Crawford take Edmonton over Montreal.

I kind of agree. I'm not exactly sure what kind of influence people think he has.

Then he should write an article outlining why HE thinks they should take Murray and not quote Kevin eFfing Prendergrast.

His article is pure garbage. Not all of them, but this one.

Are we reading the same article? The one I read makes a pretty good case for drafting Murray and is written by a good, respected writer. You disagree; I get that. It's arrogant to argue that a guy disagrees with you so he's an idiot.

No kidding. Quoting Prendergrast is absolutely ridiculous. Why would anyone in Oil country give a damn about what Prendergrast thinks?

"All the scouting services say the charismatic Nail Yakupov of the Sarnia Sting in the Ontario Hockey League is the best player. But the starry Russian-born winger with explosive Pavel Bure-type skill is not the best player by a country mile, like Steve Stamkos or Alex Ovechkin or Ilya Kovalchuk were in their draft years."

He's the consensus #1. Look at 2008 for example. Stamkos goes #1 and there were high quality dmen taken after him. Murray is not in Doughty's realm and Yakupov beat Stamkos' record... So how is Yakupov not considerably ahead of Murray?

Murray is a great looking prospect and I would have been happy as hell to pick him at 2nd, if we didn't get blessed and win the lottery.

I think Yakupov went under a lot of peoples radars this season. Everyone just assumed Columbus would draft him, myself included. So when we won the lottery I think a lot of people only started tuning into Yakupov then. You take the #1 overall and you don't look back.

Matheson is just stirring the pot, it's not even necessarily his opinion.

The Oilers should do the exact opposite of whatever Prendergast suggests seriously

That would be funny if you forgot he was on tv and you punched him and shattered the tv screen.

I can pretty much guarantee they both enjoy their fishsticks with tatar sauce.

You could have just said tartar sauce. Tatars are also called Tartars.



I know this because I am now an expert on Tatars after spending all of 15 minutes reading Wikipedia.
