If it's not Yakupov, the Oilers have to draft Griffin Reinhart

In my mind, unless the Edmonton Oilers find a character flaw with Nail Yakupov or are floored  by an offer they get for the first overall pick, they would be foolish to not select the talented Russian forward. Having said that, if they decide to add a talented young blueliner to their stable of youngsters, that player should not be highly touted prospect Ryan Murray. Instead, the organization needs to be looking "in house" and seriously consider taking Edmonton Oil Kings defenceman Griffin Reinhart.
