Heard originally Reinhart Oil's 2nd choice. Could be become first choice? There's some drama here now.
If they don't get some GOOD assets for not taking Yakupov I'll be speechless.

Essentially won the lottery for nothing if that's the case.

time to start drinking... Heavily

If passing over Yakapov is indeed the case you would think that being burnt several times previously when going against conventional wisdom (i.e. Ninnimaki, MAP, etc) would snap them back to reality. Someones role in the org should, no needs, to be there to remind these monkeys of MAP and such every time they stray a little of the course.

Yep

We are talking about a group of people who were 99% wrong(the 1% being Stauffer) when it came to the Hall/Seguin draft.

The Oilers can(based on history) and will mislead the entire hockey media world over this draft pick to create interest.

If they trade down, they should do it because it's ****ing stupid to take anyone besides Yak 1st overall...not because they don't want the kid to have the pressure of being No. 1.

Heard from other people so decided to ask a few scouts I know for their opinion. 4 of 5 scouts I asked said Klefbom is better than Murray.


Ughhhh.

Ughhhh.
of course he is

I have a question: if all of this is to create drama and we actually pick the right guy in Yakupov, is there anyone who will look at the Oilers more positively for having done this? They could draft yak, sign schultz and trade gagner for weber straight up at this point and i will have left today disliking our management team.

Stauffer reported talking to "3 of 4 sources around the team" that it would be Murray. sure, take it with a grain of salt, but usually if Stauffer has an inside track and lets it out of the bag - id trust it.

lets hope youre right

Oh my god... this makes me sick.

Either take Yak, or trade down, grab some great assets, and take Reinhart since they love him so much. But you cannot waste #1 on Murray, you just cannot.

Honestly, the media everywhere is throwing down arguments that Yakupov is the better pick, the smart pick, the logical pick... then declare they think Oilers are going to go against all logic and draft Murray like their draft strategy is based on contrarianism.

It's getting absurd.
I agree. This year has been much more absurd then years prior. I had a tiny it of uncertainty but in the back of my mind I knew Hall was our guy and last year it was a no doubter but this years whirlwind and turmoil leaves me saying, I just don't know....

I think it will be Yakupov. We are working ourselves into a tizzy over nothing.

I've said it before, the only way they take Murray is if they have a trade for another top 10 pick in their pocket.

My only hope is that it's an attempt by management to drive up interest for the pick.

Because they've never let anything leak to this extent since the Heatley fiasco.

I know we were laughing at the idea as recently as a few days ago but thinking now...

Would you guys rather have L.Schenn + Reinhart or Murray?

Luke Schenn has negative value if we are talking 1st overall in play. And why the hell do we "help" Burke and "give" him Yak!??!!?!?

Rather have Schenn and Dumba/Rielly. Hell, I bet Schenn and Murray at #5 isn't that insane this year.

Well, I'd rather have Yakupov.

Reinhart alone is better than Murray and has higher upside IMO, so yes, I'd rather have L. Schenn and Reinhart over Murray

Allan Walsh, an agent who is in the same organization as Rick Valette (Murray's agent) just said stay tuned about having the 1st overall pick in the org. for 2nd year in a row.



This might be the worst 1st overall pick since Erik Johnson.

I wanna agree with you on this. But even then....I have a stupid feeling they pick Murray.

Still, hoping for Yakupov.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Bob filling our heads with Seguin propaganda on draft day two years ago?
