Here is the list of the other defenceman on the Oilers that year:

Brad Hunt
Denis Grebeshkov
Mark Fraser From Toronto
Ladislav Smid To Calgary
Taylor Fedun
Oscar Klefbom
Nick Schultz To Columbus
Corey Potter To Boston
Martin Marincin
Philip Larsen
Jeff Petry
Andrew Ference
Justin Schultz
I personally think Yakovlev is better than Belov.

I'd have the defensive pairings

If this team was to play in the NHL, I would take anyone over Hersley. And if that anyone happens to be Zub, so much the better.

"no kind of logic, intelligence or philosophy can ever win a fight against ignorance, superstition or stupidity" (Justinov) - a thing to remember on HFBoards

"Here's a statistic, the average person in the world has less than 2 legs. Which is absolutely correct but somewhat misleading."

Now how much of that had to do with Eakins or the transition between the NA game and European game or differant ice surfaces, who knows. However if you were to ask me if I think Belov is a #2 dman on an NHL team, especially a playoff team, my answer will be no. And with that said I liked Belov when he was in Edmonton, I was hoping he would stick around for another season. However he decided that it was in his best interest to rejoin the KHL and it was worked out really well for him.

This response in context of the quote that you were quoting is extremely bad for the case you're trying to make. If I were trying to make the case that SKA would be competitive and someone brought that up I would respond "Oh well see, Belov is actually maybe just our 3rd or 4th best D but I have him in the top pairing for chemistry reasons". But the honesty is appreciated

Just kidding man. I'm not saying they'd be the worst team in the league, but they'd struggle. Especially during that last stretch of games 60 to 82.
