Oilers are down to 5 players for #1 overall pick according to Head Scout Stu MacGregor: Yakupov, Grigorenko, Forsberg, Murray, Reinhart


I am no scout so my opinion is just that: an opinion. With this clarification done I would like to express my surprise with this recent (posted under an hour ago) information. The main reason for this surprise is presence of Grigorenko and absence of Alex Galchenyuk. In my opinion (here I go again) after the combine Galchenyuk MUST be considered for the top pick (skill, size, breed, strong compete level and on and on I may go). All things considered, it really is between THREE players-Yakupov, Galchenyuk and Murray-after which one might consider Forsberg, Reilly, Dumba, Trouba and Reinhart. However, if the Oil doesn't trade the 1st overall, it better be one of those three guys. Ain't gonna touch on Yakupov, (enough said already) but Galchenyuk can be our Seguin 2012 and Murray canl give us strong transition game + defense.
