I wish Yakupov was born in Grande Prairie so we wouldn't have to be having this conversation.

The fact that we are even talking about this shows how shaky Oiler fans' confidence in our management is.

Mark Spector just stated that there is some talk of the Oil trading down to select Griffin Reinhart, as they have him rated higher than Murray.

Gongshow... ENGAGE

You're setting yourself up to get burned with that one.

The Oilers management reminds me of a guy doing his first ever fantasy football draft.

"Oh, I have all my starters, might as well take a defense here"

If Tambellini attempts this, he must have some massive testicles.

He's going to be vilified for not taking Yakupov OR Murray.

From what I read, this is the order of preference from Oiler fans:

1. Pick Yak @ 1
2. Trade pick, gain considerable assets, pick Reinhart @ wherever
3. Punch themselves in a sensitive orfice.
4. Pick Murray @ 1

I have the Michael Scott "No" clip prepped if Murray goes first.

Sometimes i think it wouldve been easier if Columbus or Montreal had won the lottery... Guess I'll find out tonight.

I cant believe i'm still the only one who voted for other. The Edmonton Oilers will not be picking Yakupov or Murray. It will be Reinhart of Reilly, im suspecting a trade down. I wouldn't be suprised if my pal burkie traded up for both the sarnia russians.

The question is who would they take first overall. Whether or not theyd trade down and take someone else is a different question and different poll.

Not sure if it's valid or not but:

Hockey Break‏ @***********

Source: the Edmonton Oilers will be picking Ryan Murray 1st overall if they keep their pick. Unconfirmed for now; will keep you updated.

Considering the source is starred out i'd say its not a valid source. Also, the tweet contradicts itself so it effectively says nothing.

Only a small group of Oilers execs know who is at the top of their list.

It's going to be Murray, I can't see them taking Yakupov, he wouldn't look good in their jersey, nor CBJ's...

I mean that as in I believe some players don't look good in a certain teams jersey..

Only shocking from an asset management point of view. I guess you can understand them rating Murray and Yakupov about the same and picking the D, but Yakupov's glamour and status as the guaranteed no. 1 pick should allow them to trade down and still get Murray (or Rinehardt or Dumba).

I believe Yakupov injury potential and size / style of play are question marks. I kind of look at how Kane has broken down a bit because of the physical pounding. And even a bigger player like Ovy has as well. And that doesn't even bring up KHL concerns.

It will be interesting to see of Columbus picks Yakupov or not because of the KHL issue.

I'm a Habs fan and it would be a tough call between Yakupov v. Galchenyuk for me. I'm kind of hoping CLB takes Yakupov to make the decision easier.

90% of the people who would rage would probably defend Murray a year from now.

I'll defend Murray from day 1 because this whole debacle of monumental proportions isn't his fault.


It's not his fault that the Oilers have jackass for a Gm
