You're much better off the draft high end forwards and trade / sign defenseman out of free agency.

Boston won the cup and not one single defenseman on their team was drafted by The Bruins, they were all acquired through trade of free agency.

If you want Murray, you can't trade down. CBJ is very likely to draft Murray. The Islanders is almost certain to draft Murray if he is available.

I want them to choose Murray.

Then the Habs would have a shot at Yakupov.

fixed.
Murray may be the most NHL ready but might not be a top 3 Dman from this class.

Me too. More than that, I want to see what the CBJ is going to do when Yakupov is available. Can they overcome the fear factor and draft Yakupov? If they don't draft Yakupov, it will be mayhem in Habs' land because there were some fans like myself who prefer other player over Yakupov. Imagine if Yakupov is passed over by the top 3 team.

Exactly, then does Snow take him or Burke? Don't think Burke has ever drafted a Russian

It'll be Yakupov. Trade Hemsy and Gagner for defense or look to free agents.

You don't pass on a clear cut #1 like Yakupov.

Yakupov is going 1st overall, no doubt. But I truly believe Dumba will go top 5

Fully agreed. Only clown organizations do stuff like that.

You'd think so but don't put it past Oilers management. If they don't take Yakupov, we completely deserve all the ridicule every fanbase will heap on us.

I don't get why Yakupov would fall into #3 even if the Oilers pick Murray. CBJ would pick Yakupov at #2.

People who put Murray first overall in mock drafts are kidding themselves. Yakupov has been an Oiler since the lottery it's just not official yet.

Same story every year

RNH vs Landeskog
Hall vs Seguin
Tavares vs Hedman

Yakupov #1 for sure.

If they keep the first then they have no choice but to take Yakupov. If they take Murray or someone else, they'll have already traded down.

Ryan Murray's brother either trying to stir up controversy, or he's a ******.

Hahahaha.

Reading the Oil fans opinions...if this plays out the way I think it will, we're going to see a meltdown.

Drafting defensemen high is risky business. Yakupov or trade.

No way Yakupov drops to 4th. Maybe Edmonton would take Murray. He addresses organizational need better than Yakupov, but I just can't see Columbus passing on him. Especially if they lose their current star RW to trade.

Interesting that you think Montreal will take Tuevo over Yakupov too.

Meltdown is about as polite as you could be at the moment.

Mods better be prepped, because if Murray goes 1st, it will be downright squirrelly around here tonight.
