LMFAO at you!
Murray's played against NHL caliber comp at the worlds and has held his own.... The best Yakupov has played against is his own age...
When you last you draft by A:Need or B:BPA, and the Oileds will take the player the feel is best for them, and their future, as a fan there's nothing you can do.. They are paid to make these choices.

So no LMFAO at you..

This draft feels like.......?

This 2012 draft is beginning to feel like the Steve Kelly and Marc Pouliot drafts when the Oilers passed on Doan and Parise!

Oilers please................pick Yakupov!!!

Epic fail with this post.


The Oilers did this in 2003,Zach Parise was the bpa and they thought Marc Pouliot would fit with this team in the long run a lot better.



What was the end result!

Igor Larionov just said "Edmonton doesn't talk to me I don't talk to them," when we asked him to come on the show...Interesting. Seemed mad.



JasonGregor
Larionov is Yakupov's agent for those who don't know...

If a Subban to Edmonton deal happens:

With the 1st pick, in the 2012 NHL Draft, the Montreal Canadiens are proud to select...from the Sarnia Sting...Alex Galchenyuk.

It's not his fault that the Oilers have jackass for a Gm
Will you still feel that way in 3 years when they get good, or will you hail Tambo as a solid GM for sitting on his ass and tanking to get top 5 picks to get good?

I just want to see one absolutely off the chart pick in the top 5. I think that would be at least satisfactory.

I can't wait until Nail Yakupov ends up sucking and can't translate his game to the NHL. Muhahahahaha.

Please tell me why the hell the Oilers would talk to this guy for any reason? I don't think there has been a time where any team has actively spoken to a player agent before the draft even happens.

So why the hell would the Oil talk to this goof?

He'll likely be praising the team. Most Oiler fans are nihilistic and overreact. He is no exception.

Not sure is this was mentioned, bet Dreger was just on off the record. As he was exiting his interview, he was asked if Edmonton was going to take Yak or go with Murray. He said something like...Don't rule out Reinhart!!!

2 hrs to go to find out!

I love how all these "sources" are no name people. The only fairly credible source to say he thinks the Oilers will be taking Murray is Dreger, and he is known to pull crap out of his ass all the time. Not to mention, the Oilers do not tell ANYONE who they are picking. Not the player, the agent, TSN, Sportsnet, Edmonton networks. Nothing. That's the way it's worked the past two years, so tell me.. why should anyone know who the Oilers will be picking?

We'll see how it goes but right now, I do not believe anything for one bit and I still see no possible way the Oilers don't pick Yakupov.

If they draft at #1 they will take Yakupov.

He is #1 by a mile IMO

If they want Murray trade down because Cbus and the habs would love to get Yakupov.

Bob Stauffer is saying Ryan Murray. I'll take his opinion over everyone when it comes to the Oilers. Including McKenzie. Are you listening to 630CHED right now? It really seems like they're trying to soften up Oilers fans to the idea and it wouldn't be a shock if that's the plan from the very top. Stauffer and Katz are friends. Stauffer has also kind of turned into a pawn since joining the Oilers radio network.

Stauffer has been saying it was going to be Yakupov all season and then last week he changed to "my head says Yakupov but my gut says Murray". I wouldn't be surprised if his gut is actually his bosses.

Hopefully it's nothing and he's just wrong.

this is driving me nuts! I hate how their talking about Murray like he's already been selected. 630ched is really starting to piss me off. They better figure this out
