1st Overall Pick to Edmonton

Just wondering what you guys think. If say Florida retained the number 1 overall pick would they be interested in trading it to Edmonton for one of the young guns? The way I see it is that Edmonton would love to get their stud defenceman of the future in Jones and Florida is rich in D prospects and could use the firepower. May have to be evened out but something around maybe:

To Edmonton: 1st overall to select Seth Jones

To Florida: Nail Yakapov

This is of course totally dependent on Florida retaining the 1st overall.

Can't see Florida doing this. Edmonton needs to add. Their own first rounder maybe?

My personal belief is that Edmonton has already had their fair share of 1st overall picks.

This thread is like saying where Yak will end up if he was in this year's draft, my guess is the 7th pick (if the 'Yote's win the lottery then it would be the 8th).

I can't see why the Oilers would have to send any compensation in order to get the first overall pick. Hasn't it now been established in the CBA that first overall pick is to always be awarded to Edmonton?

If I'm Oilers GM then I'm trading my first round pick for immediate help (unless you end up moving to 1st by winning).

It's time to stop with the first round picks and get some concrete help. With their 6th overall pick assuming it doesn't change.....they might draft another dman who probably will not develop for another 3-5 yrs. Time to put in a winning mentality and trade for a #2-3 guy. That would be a better message to the players in the room who are constantly losing and expecting a 1st round pick to always come and help out.

So an unproven 1st overall is worth a 1st overall who hasn't disappointed this year and another top 10 pick.

Sorry but Yakupov would be lucky to go in the top 5 of this draft. Jones and MacKinnon are far more valuable pieces moving forward.

Seriously Oilers, the last thing you need is more high draft picks. Try to develop what you have and learn to find some veteran leadership and role players to fill out the roster instead of leaving the kids to sink or swim.

This is typical HF flawed logic. The new #1 pick is not always better than last years. Its just the same hype machine again and again. Yak is not getting traded for the top pick. It makes no sense on the oilers side. They have had the guy in their organization for a year. That is immensely valuable to them. If the oilers wanted a defenseman that badly, they would have drafted one last year. They can still get one with their pick as well this year.

People are undervaluing Yakupov... I hate the Oilers as much as any Canucks fan should, but he's a damn good player and Yak + 1st is an overpayment for Jones.

Yak's 82 game pace this season: 29g 24a 53pts as a 19 year old rookie.

Kind of like the 1st last year was worth Subban and the 3rd?

Have you even watched Yakupov? I'm no Oiler fan, but that kid is incredibly skilled and fast. If he were in this draft, he'd be right in the conversation with Drouin/MacKinnon.

Also, Edmonton, you've hd enough 1st overalls. Give someone else a turn.

Thank you, and thats with 3rd line minutes and slugs. Yak can be every bit a good as Mc Kinnon, the kid has amazing hands, a great shot and great work ethic and lots of speed. As for Jones if he turns out to be Johnson then no hes not better, if he turns out to be Pronger then i will agree. All these shiny new toys have yet to prove a thing, Yak will be a star sooner than later. Its now up to them to prove to be a good as Yak.

I rather have MacKinnon than Yakupov, so no from the Panthers.

Not always, but this year it definitely is.

I'd rather have RNH than MacKinnon. RNH-Yakupov or Gagner-Yakupov, so no from the Oilers.

Then we have no problem. I'd take MacKinnon over RNH too.

"This years first overall is clearly worth more than last years!"

Quoted from the HF masses prior to the draft in 2013. And 2012. And 2011. Okay, and 10.

This more or less sums it up. Prior to this season there were tons of Yakupov proposals where most Oiler fans (myself included) would ask for high end players in return, only to be met with "he hasn't even played an NHL game yet, he's unproven." Now he has a (lockout shortened) season under his belt where he leads all rookies in scoring (all of them older with more seasoning except for Galchenyuk), and he's not good enough to crack this year's top 5? Sure, I have no problem with that
