If we get Trouba, I'll have a good enough reason to go to a game at Yost, I hear it's an experience, but college hockey doesn't interest me.

of course there's also the possibility that one of the teams above us takes a player who's not as highly ranked (like Ceci) which would give us 1 more option.

According Ryan Murray's brother, the Oilers are taking him 1st overall:

not that i know for absolute sure but its looking pretty good that we could be making some alberta trips in the near future. ‪#JustSayin
According to the James Mirtle, the Jackets aren't taking Yakupov 2nd overall:

Quote:
Blue Jackets beat guy @aportzline has Columbus passing on Yakupov at No. 2. So if Edmonton goes with Murray, Yakupov could fall to three.
Craziness.

I would say Trade Up, but this just makes the 4th pick that much more valuable. Mini Bure may not be legend material, but he's pretty close to a sure thing.

Do you have any quotes for any of this? (Just to save time searching)
Mostly just speculative tweets, but there have been a surprising amount of them.

Brian burke tells me that there's a good chance they'll pick a defenceman at 5th overall. Little movement possibility as of now.#tmltalk

NHLwiki ‏@NHLwiki
#NHL *Rumor*-- @StephRDSJunior reports #Habs have given him the hinted, strong impression that they will pick Teuvo Teravainen 1st.
There was a lot more Teravainen stuff earlier but it was mostly from french media so I have a harder time finding it again.

I just can't bring myself to believe that Edmonton's going to take Murray.. There's so much smoke right now but I just won't believe it until it actually happens.

I'll be very surprised, no, I'll be pretty stunned if the Oilers don't take Yakupov with the top pick.

GM's phones must be going off the hook right now trying to figure out how to get the Columbus or NYI pick.

I will be stunned, then laugh, and then wonder about all the back-peddling from Oilers fans here who were pumping up Yakupov to be the next Stamkos.

FWIW Pierre McQuire says he would be shocked if Edmonton did not draft a defenseman ether at 1 or via a trade down. We'll see soon.

Murray is pretty damn good as well, but I think the Oilers brass would be silly to pass on Yakupov. Maybe the Oilers already asked the Jackets (judging from the article posted a few back) if they wanted to trade up for Yakupov but the price was too much. OH GOD so much speculation. Love it.

To be fair though, it's a no win situation for the Oilers, everyone was saying they have no D they need to take Murray, now that it sounds like they will it's "DAMMIT TAMBO, Y U NO TAKE NAIL?"

They really have no safe option.

I think the Oilers could trade their number 1 pick for a good Dman and still pick up another D a little lower. It's not as crazy as it sounds..... they don't NEED another high flying forward.

Imagine the size of chip on Yak's shoulder if he went 4th?

He might get 50 next year just to prove top 3 made a HUGE mistake!!

I dont recall seeing even 1 mock draft with Yak not 1st overall, let alone 3rd or 4th!
