I'm not a big fan of moving down a few spots to get a guy who could possibly be around at 9, but if Edmonton took Murray, and Montreal took TT, I would defiantly contact the Islanders and try to get Yakupov or Galchenyuk (Whomever the BJ's didn't take).
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
#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.
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.
