There was a lot of smoke out there suggesting that the Oilers would take Ryan Murray or Griffen Reinhart.. possibly trading their pick. I think they made the right choice here. Nail Yakupov was the near-consensus #1 prospect in the draft. Most scouts and scouting agencies had him #1. Many also said there was a big drop off after Yakupov too. Well done, Oilers… now go get us Justin Schultz and possibly another good d-man via free agency or trade.
