But knowing CBJ's scouts, they'll take some other (promising) dude who will develop poorly under their management and waste yet another first round pick. Honestly, a lot of people on this board can draft AND develop players better than CBJ has done. They got Rick Nash right though but who the hell would have missed him?

I believe Edmonton needs Ryan Murray a lot more than Nail Yakupov now, but Yaks is just a beast and it isn't often that you get to take three young beasts in a row..

Edmonton can bolster their D in other ways with say, trading Ryan Smyth, Taylor Hall, and some more of their veterans for stud/young Ds

With their 31st pick they could probably take Dalton Thrower as well, pretty good D

They need a ready to play now D man, not in 2-3 years.

Also, you know you're D men are injured when Peckhman is in your top 4.

When healthy:

Smid - Petry

Schultz - Whitney

Sutton - Potter

Barker and Peckham were 7/8 guys.
