If the Oilers darft Yakupov, what are the lines for next year?
Do they put RNH, Hall and Yakupov on the same line?
or should the Oilers attempt to spread the skill, so they have at least 2 solid scoring lines?

Seriously, why is it that so many people would do anything to not draft a Russian.
He was making a joke. Relax.

I think it looks great with a blazer. If you're not wearing a blazer and you have a tie on its meh.

Yup, I've got a mancrush on Nail, I think it's impossible not to like this kid. If we don't draft him I'll be a sobbing mess.

I wonder if 100 boxes of dirty kitty litter in the mail (from all over,) could end Tambo's career?

We could organize a pet poop protest. Dogs and Emus also welcome. Scoop it and mail it.

Murray strikes me as a nice kid, similar to RNH but not as quiet..
Nothing wrong with Murray, but when theres someone with the talent and pazaz of Yakupov you take him, no trade can justify not drafting him, theres no other player right now with his mix of personality, work ethic, skill, and confidence..
His character reminds me alot of bombers hall of famer Milt Stegall..

I think Grigorenko or Murray would jump out just as much in the photo if they were to swap places with Yakupov. I wouldn't put to much stock on whether he's a keeper or not based on the two pictures.
Wasn't putting any stock in drafting him based on the pics. It was simply an observation.

I think Yakupov probably draws in for most of his ES time on a 4th/3b line with Belanger as his center, with a few choice shifts a game on the top 2 lines. And then 2nd unit PP time (or more, if deserved), probably on the same unit as Hemsky.

Treenasoil also mentioned that the ducks are interested in oilers 2nd round pick and Gagner. Would that be enough to get their 1st. Gotta be honest that would be awesome. Grab yakupov and reinhart

Yup. She's a troll. She also said that Belanger wanted out as well.

What does that mean before today, is it safe to assume that Nail Jumped ahead of Murray today after his visit to the Bat Cave?

Im still lost as to how Yakupov and Murray can be 50-50 when 90% of scouts feel Yakupov is miles ahead of any one else and there are even question marks that Murray goes at #2.
