    There are some interesting tidbits in here. Not many quick hits, but the tidbits are juicy.

    They have Tuebert who could be a solid shutdown guy. Add another top 5 pick that they could use for a defenceman. As for a goalie, yeah they don't have too many prospects. Olivier Roy is probably their best on, maybe Bunz.

    Forgot about this. So they could have had Larsson instead of Yakupov, and now they have Larsson but had to give up Hall. So, essentially, they gave up Hall for Yakupov.

    Tuebert is now playing in Germany. Roy never played a minute in the NHL and is now playing in Austria. Who the heck is Bunz? Oh, Tyler Bunz, played one period in 2014-15 and gave up 3 goals; doesn't have any stats for 2015-16 so he might be out of hockey. That's worse than Austria.

    The "Tank for Yak" movement looks as stupid in hindsight as it did back when this embarrassing thread was created.

    I'd still take a chance on Yak. He could be that depth 3rd line RW that we need right now.

    Yup.

    I'd do that too. Change of scenery might do him some good, and he could likely move up in the lineup better than a Lazar or Dzingle. Improved depth? I'm for it.

    Would you do Lazar for Yak straight up?

    Probably not. I think lazar still has more value than yak although it might be decreasing if he doesn't find some offence to his game.

    It will be a while before the Sens go for another Russian. Their 2nd round draft picks since 2000 include such household names as Uchevatov, Kaigorodov, Mirnov, Lyamin, Bashkirov. In later rounds they also took Gimayev, Nikulin, Anikienko, Zubov, Megalinsky, Bashkirov.

    Last one (Bashkirov) was in 2007.

    Apples and oranges though. Completely different drafting team.

    But if Dorion is anything like Murray we won't be drafting Russians though.

    Hard to forget that lineup. A generation of wasted 2nd round picks (I think it was something like 4-5 years in a row). And you still have players like Radulov and Voynov (with Voynov the point is that the KHL took him back with open arms -- not saying that more players will act as if they have immunity because of that, but there is a bit of that "if it doesn't work out here I can always make even more money in the KHL").

    Hey personally I agree that it's best to stay away from drafting Russians but we shouldn't let a really good player pass us by either if there aren't any red flags.

    Edit: that pick (Tarasanko) for rundblad trade would have brutal had we not be rescued by it turning into Turris. There's also a point to be made that we could of traded another assets to acquire turris but we'll never know.

    If we kept that pick we would have taken someone else. Bjugstad?

    The word here in Calgary at the draft was that the Oil were trying to move him for a 3rd and couldn't find any takers.
